After an amicable breakup in 2006 and a brief regrouping in 2010, The Juliana Theory has officially announced plans for another reunion. On Monday (April 17), the Pennsylvania-founded band announced that they will reunite once more this summer to celebrate the group’s 20-year anniversary. “We are extremely excited to announce that The Juliana Theory is reuniting to hit the road for our 20th anniversary this summer,” the group posted on their social media accounts about the upcoming excursion.
“We never thought we would play together again, let alone tour, but the 5 of us are thrilled to make all new memories with you this summer!” The anniversary tour will kick off on July 29 at Double Happiness in Columbus, OH and conclude with a two-night engagement at The Rex in Pittsburgh. Tickets for the 12-stop tour will go on sale beginning Monday, May 1, at 10 a.m. EST.
Back in January, The Juliana Theory made headlines when it was announced that they had been added to the lengthy list of artists set to hit the high seas in October for the first annual Warped Rewind at Sea. The group will join bands like Good Charlotte, Mayday Parade, Less Than Jake, Story of the Year, Cartel, Simple Plan and many more on the four-day cruise.Warped Rewind at Sea will take place during the weekend of Oct. 28, 2017-Nov. 1, 2017. The excursion will include a four-night round-trip cruise from New Orleans to Cozumel, Mexico.
For now, you can see the band’s full announcement and tour schedule below. The Juliana Theory’s final studio album was 2005’s Deadbeat Sweetheartbeat.
“Hello beautiful friends,
We are extremely excited to announce that The Juliana Theory is reuniting to hit the road for our 20th anniversary this summer. We never thought we would play together again, let alone tour, but the 5 of us are thrilled to make all new memories with you this summer!
The more that time has passed since we broke up, the more we’ve all realized that we cherish so many memories tied up in this band. We’ve remained close friends but the bond we share making music together is something that all 5 of us have missed.
No longer seeing your faces and hearing your voices in sing-a-longs out on the road has left a void. We’ve read all your tweets and Instagram posts and emails saying you miss us and you wanna know the truth? We miss you all just as much if not more. To know that our music still matters to people 20 years after we first got together in a tiny garage in a small town in western PA — wow, that’s genuinely humbling.
So now after all this time – to be able to share this connection and the memories tied into these songs with you is something the whole band feels beyond fortunate to be able to do again. Thank you for all the love these past 20 years and for missing us. We are happy to be back and WE CAN’T WAIT TO SEE YOU THIS SUMMER!”
