All Time Low and Dashboard Confessional to live ‘Summer Ever After’

Ready to add another huge tour to your lengthy summertime concert schedule? If not, it’s time to do so. On Monday (May 14) All Time Low and Dashboard Confessional announced plans to hit the road together during the month of August. Titled the “Summer Ever After” tour, the excursion will kick off on Aug. 3 at Myth Live in St. Paul, Minnesota. After spending a couple of weeks traveling across the continent, the trek will conclude its first leg on Aug. 26 at the Stone Pony Summerstage in Asbury Park, New Jersey. The tour dates for the second leg of the excursion will reportedly be announced within the next few weeks.

Taking to social media, both bands announced the upcoming co-headlining tour in their own special way.

“This could be the end of an era…or a new beginning…or some kind of endless summer. We haven’t totally figured it out yet, but what we do know is that we ain’t finished rippin’ gigs for you this year!!!” posted All Time Low on their official Twitter account.

As for Dashboard, they took a more direct approach with their announcement: “We’ve been keeping this a secret for far too long…The Summer Ever After tour with All Time Low and support from Gnash.”

As confirmed by Dashboard, singer-songwriter Gnash will be the groups’ direct supporting act. Tickets for the “Summer Ever After” tour will go on sale beginning this Friday, May 18, at 10 a.m. local time.

Fan club and Citi pre-sales will begin this Tuesday, May 15, at 10 a.m. local time and conclude on Thursday. All other pre-sales will begin on Thursday, May 17. For more details about the upcoming tour, you can head on over to either All Time Low‘s or Dashboard Confessional‘s websites.

The upcoming tour will be in support of All Time Low’s recently released record, Last Young Renegade. The band’s seventh studio album was released back in June of 2017 and quickly landed at the number nine spot on Billboard’s 200 chart. This album also marked the group’s first with their new record label, Fueled By Ramen.

Prior to embarking on the “Summer Ever After” tour, All Time Low will play three California dates on the final Vans Warped Tour. After that, they will head out to Chicago to perform at this year’s Lollapalooza.

Much like All Time Low, the upcoming tour will be in support of Dashboard Confessional’s recently released record, Crooked Shadow. Their seventh studio album also marks their first record to be released via their new home of Fueled By Ramen.

Dashboard Confessional and the All-American Rejects to embark on summer tour

After a week of posting cryptic messages on social media, the All-American Rejects have finally unveiled what all the teasing was for. On Monday (May 8), the Oklahoma-founded band announced plans to hit the road during the summertime. Heading out with the four-piece during the months of July and August will be Dashboard Confessional. Similar to the All-American Rejects photographic teases, the Chris Carrabba-led group posted an image with Carrabba and ARR frontman Tyson Ritter. Accompanying the photo was the caption “I think we’re on to something…tune in tomorrow” as well as AAR’s Twitter handle.

The joint summer excursion will kick off on July 13 at the Pacific Amphiheatre in Costa Mesa, California and conclude a month later on Aug. 15 at the Ravinia Festival in Highland Park, Illinois. The Social Animals will open for the two groups from July 14 to July 23 while the Maine will take over from July 25 to Aug. 13.

Pre-sales for both general admission tickets and VIP tickets will begin on Wednesday, May 10, at 10 a.m. local time. Once pre-sales end, public tickets sales will begin on Friday, May 12, also at 10 a.m. local time. Dashboard Confessional is currently offering two different VIP packages named after two of their biggest hits. The first is called the “Hands Down” the Ultimate Dashboard Confessional Experience and the other is named the “Don’t Wait” Backstage Meet & Greet Experience. For more information about the packages, head on over the Dashboard’s website here.

The tour announcement comes a year after Carrabba premiered a brand new song titled “May”; this first new tune in seven years. Around the time the song was unveiled, the singer had also alluded that he was working on new music, but had no release date in mind. “I don’t have any idea of a release date or a worry about one for that matter,” Carrabba told Entertainment Weekly in 2016.

As for the All-American Rejects, last summer they hit the road alongside Blink-182 for their California summer tour (read out review here). During the tour, they performed a new song titled “DGAF” and have been teasing that there will be new music soon. When that new music will make an appearance, only the band knows.

Sublime announces slew of goods to celebrate 25 years of debut album

Sublime’s debut album is about to celebrate its 25th anniversary, so the remaining members of the group have decided to unleash a slew of goodies for their longtime fans to honor the occasion. On Tuesday (March 21), the California-founded band announced they will be reissuing 1995’s Badfish EP on vinyl for Record Store Day 2017 (April 22). This marks the second year the group has released something from their discography for the unofficial music lovers holiday. Last year, the band released their 1991 cassette, Jah Won’t Pay the Bills, on vinyl.

The Badfish vinyl will include the 40 Oz. to Freedom version of “Badfish” and “Don’t Push (Original)” as well as the live at Kommotion (Sept. 3, 1994) version of “Untitled Dub” on side A. The live at Kommotion (Sept. 3, 1994) version of “We’re Only Gonna Die for Our Arrogance” and “Roots of Creation” will be featured on the B-side of the vinyl.

When celebrating a record with a name like 40 Oz. to Freedom, it’s only fitting to release a beer and name it after the album and that’s exactly what Sublime plans to do. The group has teamed up with AleSmith Brewing Company to create a Mexican-style lager named “40 Oz. to Freedom.”

“It doesn’t taste like anything else,” drummer Bud Gaugh said in a statement. “The flavor is great and it has a craft beer flare with a true Mexican lager taste. This is the one!”

Late singer Bradley Nowell’s widow, Troy Holmes, added, “Being a beer lover, I’m so proud to partner with an elite world-class brewery like AleSmith and I know Sublime fans will absolutely love it! Like Bradley sang, ‘That second beer was such a turn-on.'”

A limited-edition batch of the beer will be bottled in 40 ounce containers and sold through the brewery as well as some yet-to-be-determined locations before they are nationally released as six packs.

As if the Record Store Day release and beer weren’t enough, the group will release their first authorize documentary which will reportedly tell the “real” story of the band. The film came together thanks to joint cooperation from Gaugh, bassist Eric Wilson, and the Nowell estate on the production end. As if that wasn’t enough Sublime on film, the group has also revealed that they are currently in the early stages of negotiations for a biopic about the band.

While Sublime hasn’t released any new music since 1996, the latest incarnation, Sublime with Rome, released their last studio album, Sirens, back in 2015. This summer, the group will hit the touring circuit alongside fellow Californians, The Offspring, for their massive co-headlining tour. The complete list of tour dates can be seen below.

Rancid and Dropkick Murphys to embark on ‘From Boston to Berkley’ tour

Just when you thought summer 2017’s list of tours was already packed, it’s time to add one more to that lineup. On Tuesday (March 7), Rancid and the Dropkick Murphys announced plans to hit the road this summer for a joint, co-headlining excursion. The “From Boston to Berkley” tour will kick off on July 27 at Darling’s Waterfront Pavilion in Bangor, Maine and wrap up a month later on Aug. 26 in Los Angeles, though a venue or ticket sales date have yet to be confirmed.

In addition to full sets from both groups, the bands have also announced that every night, they will come together for a special joint encore. The Bouncing Souls and Jake Burns of Stiff Little Fingers will open the tour from July 27 to Aug. 9. From Aug. 11 to the end of the tour, The Selecter and Kevin Seconds from 7 Seconds will replace The Bouncing Souls and Burns.

“Rancid is looking forward to hitting the road with our brothers, the Dropkick Murphys,” writes Rancid vocalist/guitarist Tim Armstrong.

“It’s a long time coming with these two bands touring together,” adds Rancid guitarist Lars Frederiksen. “There is so much history between both of us that it should make for a great tour. We look forward to seeing all of our friends and family out there.”

“This is a dream come true for Dropkick Murphys. Hopefully all the people coming to the shows will feel the same way. Rancid gave us our break – Tim signing us to his label, Lars producing our early albums…so much history and great memories. Now, literally sharing the stage together every night. This tour is going to destroy all others this summer,” mirrors Dropkick Murphys vocalist/bassist Ken Casey.

The upcoming summer tour will be in support of Dropkick Murphys’ recently released record, 11 Short Stories of Pain and Glory. As for Rancid, the California-founded band’s released their last album, …Honor is All We Know in 2014, though, it appears they are currently working on new material.

Gwen Stefani announces ‘This is What the Truth Feels Like’ tour


Armed with a brand new record, Gwen Stefani is ready to hit the open road. On Monday (April 18), the pop star announced that she will be getting up from behind the judges’ panel on The Voice to hit the road this summer. The upcoming summer tour has been named the “This is What the Truth Feels Like” tour in honor of her recently released record.

The tour will kick off on July 12 at the Xfinity Center in Mansfield, MA and will find Stefani performing at a slew of North American venues across the country. The trek will then wrap up on Oct. 15 at the Forum in Stefani’s stomping ground of Los Angeles. Though the schedule seems to take place primarily in the summer months, there seems to be a pretty massive gap between the Vancouver, BC date (Aug. 25 at the Rogers Arena) and the Mountain View, CA date (Oct. 8 at the Shoreline Amphitheatre). No word yet on whether she will take that time off to be with her family or if more tour dates will be announced for that void.

One thing that we do know for a fact is that frequent collaborator and rapper, Eve, will hit the road alongside the pop star for the trek. Tickets for the shows will go on sale beginning this week. Citi Card members will be given the chance to purchase tickets ahead of anyone else beginning Tuesday, April 19. General tickets sales for the public will then go on sale beginning this Friday, April 22. For more information about the upcoming tour, head on over to Stefani’s website here.

Thrice to Hit the Road with La Dispute, Gates


Just a week after teasing that a brand new album is currently in the works, Thrice has given their fans even better news. On Monday (Jan. 19), the California band, who recently came out of hiatus, announced plans to hit the road this summer. The North American trek is set to begin on June 3 at the Shrine Expo Hall in Los Angeles and wrap up less than a month later on June 25 at The Summit Music Hall in Denver.

Heading out on the road alongside Thrice will be La Dispute and Gates. Pre-sale tickets for the shows are currently available on the band’s website here. The complete list of upcoming tour dates can be seen below.


The news of the upcoming summer excursion comes more than a year after speculation of the band’s return began. At the end of 2014, the band had posted an image on their Tumblr with “Thrice” and “2015” written on it. At the time, fans began to gossip that the message meant they would be reuniting for the tenth anniversary of their fourth studio album, Vheissu. Sadly, the group did not go out on a Vheissu tenth anniversary tour, but they did play several shows including the resurrection of Taste of Chaos in California back in October of 2015.

State Champs to Hit the Road This Summer


What is a band to do after they’ve played supporting act to two big bands in one year?

Go on their own headlining tour, of course.

State Champs announced earlier in the day that once their Australian tour with 5 Seconds of Summer has wrapped, they will be returning to North America for their own headlining trek.

Heading out on the road with them will be Hit The Lights, Tiny Moving Parts, Let It Happen, and Northbound.

The trip which has been named “The (S)Hot Boys of Summer Tour” will begin on July 16 in Worcester, PA at the Palladium Upstairs and wrap up on Aug. 2 in Chicago at the Bottom Lounge.

Check out the full list of tour dates, as well as the official poster for it, below.
