By Bob Grossweiner and Jane Cohen:

Sister act Meg & Dia continue their marathon 2007 tour into 2008 by hitting the road in February with a series of high profile dates. The sisters will be supporting San Diego’s Angels & Airwaves, which is fronted by former Blink-182 vocalist-guitarist Tom Delonge. The tour kicks off Feb. 1 in Dallas, TX and winds down March 8 in Seattle, WA. Meg & Dia complete their current tour on Nov. 29 in Detroit, MI.

The band — which consists of sisters Meg (guitar, vocals) and Dia Frampton (lead vocal), Nick Price (drums), Carlo Gimenez (guitar), Jonathan Snyder (bass) — have been on the road for the last year in support of their current album “Something Real.” They spent the summer headlining the Hurley.com stage on the Vans Warped Tour, then did several dates with The Almost and Josh Moore. The U.S. leg of their extensive North American tour with The Spill Canvas began at the end of October.

Meg & Dia began attracting attention for their confessional alt-pop and dynamic live performances while appearing on last year’s Warped Tour as the first official MySpace House Band, where they performed twice each day in the MySpace tent. In August 2006, they released “Something Real” (Doghouse Records), which was co-produced by American Hi-Fi’s Stacy Jones and Bill Lefler.
