Pop punk band Say Anything will be back in full-swing this fall as it releases its latest studio album and simultaneously begins a new tour of North America. The 31-date trek kicks off October 14 at the House of Blues in Anaheim, CA, and concludes with a hometown gig on November 22 at Troubadour in Los Angeles, CA.
During its one-month outing, Say Anything will stop in markets from coast to coast, including multiple-night engagements in a couple cities. The tour will perform at two separate clubs in New York City, starting with The Fillmore at Irving Plaza on November 3 and following with HighLine Ballroom on November 4. Also scheduled is a November 11-12 stand at The Social in Orlando, FL.
Other highlights on the itinerary include performances on October 17 at El Corazon in Seattle, WA; October 23 at Vic Theate in Chicago, IL; October 28 at Phoenix Concert Theatre in Toronto, ON; November 10 at Masquerade in Atlanta, GA; and November 20 at Marquee Theatre in Tempe, AZ.
The band is making a limited number of tickets available through an exclusive presale on Front Gate Tickets. Presales will open August 10 at 1 p.m. local time. Public onsale dates have not yet been announced.
In addition to Say Anything’s headline slot on the bill, each performance will feature support from indie rock band Eisley and Canadian rock outfit Moneen. Select dates of the tour will also include opening sets from Miniature Tigers and Moving Mountains, though both bands will not perform on all dates.
Say Anything will be touring directly behind the release of its fourth full-length record, a self-titled project due October 13. The album is a follow-up to the October 2007 release “In Defense of the Genre,” which received mostly high marks from critics and earned the band its first-ever position on the Billboard 200 with a peak at No. 27.
“My opinion is that it literally defines everything about the band we’ve built so far,” Say Anything frontman Max Bemis said in a recent statement about the upcoming album. “If you like us or love us from the bottom of your heart, be excited.”
