Circa Survive plot ‘Blue Sky Noise’ ten-year anniversary tour for 2020

It’s time to put Blue Sky Noise back on repeat because Circa Survive is hitting the road to celebrate its decade anniversary.

On Monday (Oct. 21), the Pennsylvania-founded band announced plans to embark on a ten-year anniversary tour during the spring and early summer months. Dubbed the Blue Sky Noise 10 Year Anniversary tour, the excursion will find the group performing at venues across the continent during March, April, May, and June 2020.

The lengthy excursion includes stops in Atlanta, Orlando, Nashville, Cleveland, Toronto, Montreal, Las Vegas, Dallas, St. Louis, and more. The outing kicks off on March 20 at Rams Head Live in Baltimore and concludes almost three months later on June 7 at Union Transfer in Philadelphia.

“We’re so excited to announce the Blue Sky Noise 10 Year Anniversary Tour! We can’t wait to celebrate this album with you next year,” the group tweeted.

VIP bundles are currently available for purchase here. Most VIP bundles include a general admission ticket to the show, a patch, a signed setlist, a three-song acoustic performance, a Q&A session with the band, and an exclusive first look at their Blue Sky Noise documentary.

General ticket sales begin this Friday, Oct. 25, at 10 a.m. local time.

Blue Sky Noise was Circa Survive’s Atlantic Records debut. It’s also the group’s highest-charting album to date, reaching the number 11 spot on the Billboard 200 chart.

It’s been ten years since Set Your Goals released their debut album, Mutiny! and now, they’ll be taking the celebration on the road. On Wednesday (July 8), the Bay Area band, announced on Twitter plans to hit the road in late 2016/early 2017 to celebrate the record’s anniversary. “That time Set Your Goals put out Mutiny! 10 years ago TODAY…and began booking nationwide and worldwide Mutiny! shows for 2016 & 2017!,” The group posted on their Twitter website.

Mutiny! was released back in 2006 through Eulogy Record with a re-issue featuring five additional songs and a video being released two years later.

Boys Like Girls announce self-titled tenth anniversary tour

BLG

It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything from Boys Like Girls. Their last album, Crazy World, was met with lukewarm reception from fans who were used to the group’s original pop-punk sound and were thrown for a loop when it was something along the lines of pop-country. Since its release in 2012, each of the band members have been concentrating on their own projects. On Sunday (May 8), frontman Martin Johnson, guitarist Paul DiGiovanni, and drummer John Keefe all began to post images on their social media pages with old-school pictures of the group, with an overlay of their debut record’s cover art, and the number ten. 

On Monday (May 9), the speculation of a ten-year anniversary tour was confirmed. Confirming the announcement, the band posted a minute-and-a-half clip with lots of videos which rank from playing in what looks like an auditorium to their music video for “Thunder.” In honor of their debut, self-titled record, the group has announced plans to hit the road this August for a handful of tenth anniversary tour dates. The tour will officially kick off at the House of Blues in the band’s hometown of Boston on Aug. 5. After a couple of more East Coast stops, the band will wrap up the mini tour on Aug. 12 at Via Theatre in Chicago.

Pre-sale and VIP tickets for the shows will go on sale beginning Tuesday, May 10, at noon EST. For those who miss the pre-sales, general admission tickets will go on sale beginning this Friday, May 13 at noon, local time. Watch the band’s tenth anniversary tour announcement below, while the complete list of tour dates can be seen after that.

Atreyu announces tenth year anniversary tour for ‘A Death-Grip on Yesterday’

With a brand new record under their belt, Atreyu is ready to celebrate one of their older gems. On Wednesday (March 30), the California-based band announced they will be hitting the road in May to celebrate the tenth anniversary of their third studio album, A Death-Grip on Yesterday. The upcoming tour will kick off on May 3 at the Senator Theater in Chico, CA and wrap up a couple of weeks later on May 20 at Vinyl in Las Vegas.

The short tour will feature the band performing the 2006 release, in full, for the first time while also including some songs from their lengthy catalog onto the set list. Islander and Sworn In have been announced as Atreyu’s support throughout the trek with the only exception being the Seattle date (May 7) which will find Nekrogoblikon filling in for Sworn In.

Death-Grip is my favorite ‘older’ Atreyu album. It represents an exciting time and place for myself and my brothers,” explains frontman Alex Varkatzas. “It’s our most ‘to the point’ record. I also feel it’s one of our most natural records as well. Lyrically, I got to run free and it felt great. We are pleased to play it in its entirety and give each song its due!”

“For me, Death-Grip was a landmark record in our career,” begins drummer Brandon Saller. “I feel that it was the first album we made where we took fearless leaps into the unknown. This record is still one of my favorite pieces of work we’ve ever done and I feel like our fans hold it in the same regard. I’m really excited to celebrate 10 great years of this album’s life. We will be playing Death-Grip front to back, as well as a good bunch of other favorites.”

The Academy Is… Reunion Tour Dates Unveiled

After a killer reunion show pre-Riot Fest Chicago last Thursday and an even bigger set at Riot Fest on Saturday, The Academy Is… has officially announced the highly anticipated tour dates for their “Almost Here Tenth Anniversary Tour.”

During their set at Riot Fest Chicago, the Chicago-based band told the overly excited audience that they will be hitting the road this December for the anniversary of their debut album even though the album technically turned ten back in February. But, to keep the suspense going a little more, the group decided to wait until Monday (Sept. 14) to release not only the tour dates, but also the tickets and much more.

Check out the tour dates for the “Almost Here Tenth Anniversary Tour.”

Currently, VIP packages are on sale while general ticket will go on sale beginning this Friday, Sept. 18, at 10 a.m. local time.

Circa Survive Announce ‘Juturna’ Tenth Anniversary Tour

After cryptically teasing that something big was coming in honor of the tenth anniversary of Juturna, Circa Survive have now confirmed what all fans have been hoping for.

As anticipated, the band or more specifically frontman Anthony Green, has revealed that they will be heading out on tour this Fall in honor of the tenth anniversary of their much-loved, debut record.

Green wrote on Facebook:

“This fall we’ll be touring North America celebrating the 10 year anniversary of ‘Juturna’ by performing the record in its entirety. It’s hard to believe this album is ten years old because it still means so much to me. It’s the first chapter in the story of Circa Survive and I owe so much to it. Playing these songs is like reading a message I wrote to myself from the past and I can’t wait celebrate them with new and old fans. – Anthony”

The tour will kick off on Oct. 23 at the Best Buy Theater in New York and wrap up a month later at the Starland Ballroom in Sayerville, NJ. Heading out on the road with them will be RX Bandits and reportedly one other band that has yet to be revealed. At the present time, that slot is filled by “TBA.”

In addition to the tour celebrating the tenth anniversary of the album that gave us “Act Appalled,” Circa has also revealed that they  will be releasing a special limited edition 3xLP deluxe vinyl reissue of Juturna. The catch is the number of vinyls that will be pressed for the occasion; 2,500. At the moment, the band have pre-orders going on, so if you want one, it might be time to be heading over there to purchase one.

The deluxe vinyl reissue will contain 34 tracks, three different looking records, and will be housed in a triple gate fold jacket with expanded art. For more information, check out the band’s website.

Also, don’t forget to also check out the tour dates for the “Juturna Tenth Anniversary Tour.” VIP tickets for the show are now on sale while general admission tickets will go on sale beginning this Friday, July 31 at 10 a.m., local time.

Minus the Bear to Celebrate Ten Years of ‘Menos el Oso’

image

The tenth anniversary tour announcements continue.

On the heels of Armor for Sleep announcing their own tenth anniversary tour earlier in the day, Minus the Bear have followed suit and done the same.

The Seattle-based band announced they will be heading out on tour later this year to celebrate the tenth anniversary of their second album, Menos el Oso.

The band revealed their plan on Facebook as well as who will be going them as they make their way across the United States. Murder By Death, O’Brother, and Aero Flynn will open for Minus the Bear during the tour stops.

“2015 marks the 10 year Anniversary of Menos el Oso. We’re excited to be heading out on the road this November to celebrate the album front to back with our friends Murder By Death, o’brother and Aero Flynn!” the band wrote on Facebook.

Menos el Oso will officially turn ten on Aug. 23, so what else is a band to do with such a huge moment? The ‘Menos el Oso Tenth Anniversary Tour’ will kick off on Nov. 11 in Wilmington, NC at Ziggy’s and wrap up on Nov. 23 at the Wonder Ballroom in Portland, OR.

Tickets for the shows will go on sale beginning this Friday, July 24 at 10 a.m. local time.

The complete list of tour dates can be seen below.

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.

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.

Motion City Soundtrack Announce ‘Commit This to Memory’ Tenth Anniversary Tour

wpid-motioncitysoundtrack2012.jpeg

Fans of Motion City Soundtrack should have known something was brewing when the band’s official Twitter account tweeted out a message that simply read, “Fact. Commit This to Memory will be 10 years old this coming new year (2015).”

If an upcoming tenth anniversary tour was the first thing to come to mind, then you would have been right because the band have now announced plans to hit the road in early 2015 in support of their sophomore album.

The Commit This to Memory tenth anniversary tour will begin on January 17, 2015 at the Varsity Theater in Minneapolis. After visiting majority of the United States, the tour will then wrap up on February 26 at the House of Blues in Chicago.

If the tour news wasn’t enough, the band have also revealed they will be playing Commit This to Memory in full (time to brush up on “Make Out Kids”)

But that’s not all.

In support of the tour, Motion City Soundtrack have enlisted a list of artists as their opening acts including Hit the Lights, Hawthorne Heights, The Early Novembers, Copeland, Team, Hellogoodbye, William Beckett and Vinnie Caruana.
