Alternative Press has exclusively learned that Philadelphia pop-punk act and former AP cover stars the Starting Line will come out of hibernation in early 2011 to participate in Australia's annual Soundwave Festival. The traveling fest will stop in five Australian cities between Feb. 26 and March 7, 2011, with a bill featuring over 70 acts (many of which will be officially announced tomorrow). Dates below.

Although having gone on hiatus in mid-2008, TSL have already reunited once before, for a pair of holiday shows at the end of 2009. Outside of Soundwave, they have no other current touring or recording plans. If and when that changes, we'll be the first to tell you.
