Armor For Sleep Officially Announce ‘What To Do When You Are Dead’ Tenth Anniversary Tour

After several days of teasing and trolling fans, Armor For Sleep have now revealed the big news they have been keeping in secret this entire time; they’ll be heading out on tour.

Like many fans had predicted and began to speculate, the group will be heading out on the “What To Do When You Are Dead Tenth Anniversary Tour.” The tour will begin in September and not wrap up, supposedly, until December. Funny enough, the album actually turned ten earlier this year in February.

AFS frontman Ben Jorgensen issued a statement of his own on behalf of the band officially announcing the tour and that tickets will go on sale beginning this Friday, July 24.

Read the full message after the poster for the tour.

“We are excited to announce that we will be playing a select number of shows to celebrate the ten year anniversary of “what to do when you are dead”. The fact that so many of you have been listening over the years has meant (and still means) a lot to us, and this is our way of saying thank you for all the kind words and cool stories that you’ve shared with us over the years. This is gonna be fun. Below is a list of all the shows with ticket links. The ticket links go live this Friday the 24th… Hope to see you all at the shows…keep it real.

As Jorgensen wrote, there are only a selected number of tour stops for the tenth anniversary trek. Sadly, those of us who do not live on the Northeastern coast or on the west coast will not get the opportunity to see the New Jersey band perform tracks like “Remember to Feel Real” and “Stay on the Ground” live.

There is one shining glitter of hope though, Jorgensen did write to keep an eye on their Facebook page for all “future updates,” so maybe there’s more information that they aren’t telling their fans. Or maybe we’re hoping a little too much.

No matter, they had us all believing this tour would not happen and here it is, no matter how short it is.
