At the beginning of the new year, Aiden frontman Wil Francis had confirmed the band would be heading into the studio to record a new album; their final album. In a letter posted on Facebook, he hinted that there might be a final Aiden tour in the future; a formal way to thank their fan base for all of their long-term support. Now, eight months after Francis wrote that letter, the singer has unveiled the tour dates for Aiden’s last tour.

The tour has been named “The Last Sunrise Tour”; a direct reference to their breakout song, “The Last Sunrise” featured on their sophomore album, Nightmare Anatomy. According to a post on Twitter, Francis has pointed out that the dates on the official tour poster are just a handful of dates and that there are more to come. The first two official dates of the tour, Oct. 22 (Ventura, CA at The Majestic Ventura Theater) and Oct. 23 (Santa Ana, CA at The Observatory in Santa Ana, CA ) will find the Seattle group supporting Black Veil Brides on their own headlining tour.

After that, from Oct. 26 (Denver, CO) to Nov. 5 (Philadelphia), the band will be supported by Kissing Candice and Ashes to Angels. Check out the official poster with the first handful of dates below.

As for the new album, it appears that it’s already underway. Months after unveiling the slew of news, Francis wrote an open letter to his former band mates, apologizing for things that had happened in the past and extending an olive branch by asking if they would be interested in returning to the group for the final album. Guest vocalists for the album will include Ashley Costello from New Year’s Day, Adam Crilly from Ashestoangels, Chris Motionless from Motionless in White, while Ryan Seaman from Falling in Reverse will be featured as a guest drummer.

Back in July, Francis revealed his desire to release the new album as a free digital download for all the supportive fans. To fund the album, he auctioned off a lot of his old Aiden memorabilia which included outfits he had worn in the band’s music videos.

As of now, the still-untitled record is set to be released on Oct. 30.
