After a much-needed break from touring, The Used has announced plans to hit the road once again later this year. On Monday (Aug. 21), the Utah-founded band unveiled plans to hit the touring circuit later this fall for a month-long trek across the country.

The Used’s last studio album was 2014’s Imaginary Enemy while they released their live album, Live & Acoustic at the Palace just in time for their 15-year anniversary tour.

Between the Buried and Me to celebrate ten years of ‘Colors’

Between the Buried and Me is hitting the road this fall to celebrate a momentous occasion for the group. On Tuesday (May 16), the North Carolina-founded band announced plans to go on tour to celebrate the tenth anniversary of their fifth studio album, Colors. The North American trek will kick off on Sept. 7 at Atlanta’s ProgPower USA XVIII music festival and wrap on Oct. 21 at the Neighborhood Theater in the group’s home state of North Carolina.

During the tour, the band will perform the eight-track album in full. Hitting the road alongside Between the Buried and Me will be the Contortionist, Polyphia, and Toothgrinder. The three bands will open for BTBAM on all stops with the exception of the group’s appearance at ProgPower USA XVIII. Tickets for the fall tour will go on sale beginning this Friday, May 19, at 10 a.m. local time.

In a statement about the tour on their website, the band reveals the reason they decided to head out on tour to celebrate this particular album. “Colors was our statement of rebellion. We were challenging how others identified us in the context of heavy metal, and ultimately we were challenging how we identified ourselves,” begins the statement.

“It was some kind of musical manifesto, in which we found new purpose and direction simply by throwing caution to the wind and purging every ounce of creative energy we had, regardless of how unhinged it may have seemed at the time. Ten years have passed and we are lucky enough to be able to play this album from front to back on stage for our amazing fans. See you all soon!”

Colors was released in July of 2007 and sold 12,600 copies in its first week of sale. In addition to that, it reached the number 57 spot on the Billboard 200 chart marking the first time the band reached the top 100 part of the chart.

Katy Perry confirms new album, announces massive North American tour

After releasing two singles, which left fans asking for more, Katy Perry has officially announced that her fifth studio album will see a summertime release date. On Monday (May 15), the California girl announced that her long-awaited new album will be named Witness. Witness, Perry’s first new set of tunes in nearly four years, is set to be released on June 9 through Capitol Records. A few weeks ago, rumors began to circulate that Perry’s upcoming album would be titled Witness. Instead of confirming or denying the rumors, Perry allowed her legion of followers to believe what they wanted.

In addition to the new album, Perry has also announced a massive tour that will find the “Chained to the Rhythm” singer performing at a slew of North American venues throughout the late months of 2017 and early months of 2018. “WITNESS: The Tour” will begin on Sept. 7 at the Schottenstein Center in Columbus and conclude almost five months later on Feb. 5, 2018 at the Pepsi Live at Rogers Arena in Vancouver, British Columbia.

For fans of the pop star, there will be a special pre-sale to obtain tickets before anyone else.  The verified fan pre-sale will take place on Thursday (May 18) beginning at 9 a.m. local time and concluding three hours later at noon. For Perry’s Canadian fans, their verified fan pre-sale will begin next Tuesday, May 23, at 10 a.m. local time. Unlike the United States pre-sale, this one will last 12 hours. To qualify for the verified fan pre-sale, head on over to Perry’s website here.

Witness will mark Perry’s first new album since the release of 2013’s Prism. Previously released singles “Chained to the Rhythm” and “Bon Appétit” are just two of the new songs featured on the impending release.
