One-man band Secondhand Serenade has already spent more than four months on the road, but the tour bus won’t be stopping anytime soon. The solo project just announced two fall headlining jaunts, including a co-headlining spot with Cute Is What We Aim For (CiWWAF).

The current tour, featuring support from Thriving Ivory, Cory Lamb and I Hate Kate, kicked off September 16 at The Rock in Tuscon, AZ, and runs through October 17 at Idaho State University in Pocatello. After a brief break, Serenade begins the MySpace-sponored trek with CiWWAF with a Halloween gig at Crocodile Rock Cafe in Allentown, PA. The 28-date jaunt wraps December 10 at The Pavilion in Corpus Christi, TX, and includes opening sets from Automatic Loveletter and A Rocket to The Moon.

John Vesely, who performs under the name Secondhand Serenade, is touring in support of his February 2008 sophomore release “A Twist In My Story.” The album, which debuted at No. 44 on the Billboard Top 200, is a follow-up to the 2005 breakthrough “Awake.”

“I kept a lot of those same things from the first album because the way I write didn’t change. It just became more complex. Some changes were necessary this time around because of the developments I’ve had as a person and as a performer,” Vesely is quoted on his official MySpace page. “I just wanted to be creative and make the songs I wanted to make. I only used what I thought each song needed and that meant adding some new layers to the cake.”

CiWWAF is supporting its second studio album, “Rotation,” released in June 2008. The record, a follow-up to their 2006 debut, opened at No. 21 on the Top 200 charts. In earlier September, drummer Tom Falcone split from the pop rock outfit, which is currently on tour with Boys Like Girls for the Verizon Wireless Campus Tour 2008. In a statement released by Falcone, he cited “personality conflicts and daily drama” as his reasons for departing. The band has not responded to the comments or released a statement of its own.
