Jam band favorites and perennial road dogs the Disco Biscuits have announced plans for new music this fall and a set of U.S. tour dates to match. The 30-date trek opens with a September 12-13 stand at Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, NJ, and wraps its first leg on November 22 at The Catalyst in Santa Cruz, CA.

The Planet Anthem Tour, named after the band’s upcoming album, will span about 10 weeks and hit most major U.S. markets from coast to coast. In addition to the tour’s opening concerts, multiple-night engagements are lined up for October 2-3 at 9:30 Club in Washington, DC, and November 20-21 at The Fillmore in San Francisco, CA.

Other highlights of the extensive schedule include a September 19 performance at Stubb’s in Austin, TX, an October 1 concert at The National in Richmond, VA, and an October 31 show at Auditorium Theatre in Chicago, IL. Given the Biscuits’ reputation for non-stop touring, more dates are expected to follow for the rock quartet.

Tickets for the Planet Anthem trek will first be available on August 2 through the band’s BiscoTix account on Music Today. Additional onsale dates for Ticketmaster will be announced in the near future, according to a band statement.

The fall 2009 tour is promoting the Biscuits’ upcoming album “Planet Anthem,” projected for release in January 2010. Leading up to the full album release, the Philadelphia-based band will release a series of three EPs. Each EP will feature cuts from the new album, as well as remixes and music videos. The first in the series is due in September, with the remaining EPs following in six-week increments.
