Joe Budden has announced North American dates for "The Rage Tour," which kicks off next month in October.

The tour is in support of his anticipated upcoming album, Rage & The Machine, which drops on Oct. 21, and is lead by the single, "Flex" featuring Tory Lanez and Fabolous. The 17 date tour will kick off in Connecticut before hitting Miami, Philadelphia and Oakland. The tour will wrap up in Chicago on Nov. 22, but more dates are currently being added.

Rage & The Machine is already shaping up to be a solid project for the Slaughterhouse rapper. Not only is it clocking in at only 11-tracks (less is more when you're trying to make a cohesive project), but it's entirely produced by acclaimed beatmaker, araabMUZIK.  The 36-year-old rapper also pulled some standout features for the effort, including fellow Slaughterhouse rapper Joell Ortiz on “Serious" and soul singer Stacey Barthe on “I Wanna Know."

With all of his recent beef (one-sided or not), and his forthrightness on issues he deems important, Joey's tour will likely prove to be entertaining, even beyond the music. Check the tour schedule below.
