Craig Owens, who recently rejoined Chiodos, has announced that Saves The Day guitarist Arun Bali will be playing alongside him on his upcoming solo tour. Via Owens' blog:

“It’s that time again!

I’m excited to announce that my good friend Arun Bali ( twitter name: @DetroitArun ) from the band “Saves The Day” will be playing along side of me on my upcoming solo tour!
Arun has been a friend of mine for a bit now, and I’m really excited and honored to play music on stage with him finally. Not to mention, Arun is one of the nicest guys I’ve had the pleasure of knowing.
Please reach out to him on twitter, say hello, and welcome him ( @DetroitArun )with open arms. Let’s give Arun the warm welcome that he deserves.
Also, if you haven’t bought your tickets for the upcoming solo tour – then do so by heading over to – if you can’t find tickets to your specific date on that site – then please simply try to use the “google machine”..  I hear it works wonders.
Can’t wait to see all of you SO soon!
With love,
