The usual due date of a 1040 is April 15th, but if you reside overseas, you are allowed an automatic 2-month extension to file your return until June 15. However, any tax due must be paid by the original return due date (April 15) to avoid interest charges.
If you are unable to file your return by the due date, you can request an additional extension to October 15 by filing an extension. However, any payments made after June 15 would be subject to both interest charges and failure to pay penalties.
