Some big news for Outkast fans.

The duo has announced that they will soon be hitting the road to perform at over 40 festivals around the world this year.

"It's truly an honor to celebrate 20 years and still be free to do music the way we choose," said Antwan "Big Boi" Patton in a statement posted on Outkast's offical website. "I'm looking forward to rocking the stage with my Bro Ski and to all the fans - stank you smelly much, this is for y'all!"

"And imagine, all we wanted to do was rap!" added André "3000" Benjamin. "I am thankful to have been a part of a group that allowed me to explore anything that came to mind and have fun doing it. Returning to the stage together is the most exciting way for us to thank everyone for their 20 years of supporting Outkast."

The announcement follows the recent news that Outkast will be headlining the 2014 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in Indio, Calif., this April, as well as performing this June at the Firefly Music Festival in Dover, Del., along with such acts as Foo Fighters, Jack Johnson, Imagine Dragons and The Lumineers.

This year marks the 20th anniversary of the release of Outkast's debut album, Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik.

The Grammy-winning duo's hits include "Hey Ya" and "Ms. Jackson."
