Pop-punk quintet Relient K will strike out on the road later this year for a headline run backing the group’s latest album. The Three Hour Tour kicks off October 1 at Toad’s Place in New Haven, CT, and ends October 24 at The Pageant in St. Louis, MO.
The one-month venture includes a total of 19 concerts stretched from the East Coast out into the western and southern regions of the country, though it will fall short of reaching the West Coast. Highlights include gigs on October 2 at Theatre of the Living Arts in Philadelphia, PA; October 13 at the House of Blues in Chicago, IL; and October 22 at Cain’s Ballroom in Tulsa, OK.
Tickets for most dates of the Three Hour Tour are already available to the public, and more details are available on Relient K’s official Web site. Opening acts are Copeland and Barcelona.
Relient K is awaiting the release of its sixth studio album, “Forget and Not Slow Down,” due October 6. The record is the first featuring new drummer Ethan Luck, who replaced longtime drummer Dave Douglas following his December 2007 departure. Relient K’s previous release, 2007’s “Five Score and Seven Years Ago,” debuted at No. 6 on the Billboard 200.
The Christian-oriented rock group recently completed a string of U.S. tour dates in early spring 2009, supporting its 2008 EP “The Bird and the Bee Sides.” Earlier, the band spent most of 2008 on the road, first co-headlining the 2008 Vans Warped Tour then claiming headline slots on two additional tours.
