Equal Vision announced Backwards Dancer as its newest signing, and Good Charlotte announced some amazing tour support. Check out the news you might have missed today (Feb. 8) below.
The routing is scheduled for this June with more dates to be announced. Grab tickets here.
Chapel—who are heading out on tour with Waterparks, Too Close To Touch and Creeper—released a new song called “Fool's Gold.”
Chapel released their debut song last October. They're signed to Rise Records and are managed by Tyler Carter.

Zao are the next band to released a beer. Their beer is called Burned At The Stake, which is a lyric from their song, “The Sun Orbits Around Flat Earth Witch Trials,” (via Lambgoat).
That song comes from the band's newest release, The Well-Intentioned Virus.
Zao partnered with a Louisville, KY brewery called Against The Grain. It's a smoked stout with chili peppers and also has specialty grains like Pale Chocolate and Roasted Barley.
Backwards Dancer are joining Equal Vision Records through Max Bemis' (Say Anything) imprint Rory Records.
To celebrate, they released a music video for their new track, “Breathe Life Into Beauty,” filmed and produced by Ugly Duck Studios.
Here's what vocalist/guitarist Zack Shaw says of the signing:
“Growing up and through much of my formative years, the music of Say Anything and Saves the Day were integral for me in sorting out my own path and I found solidarity in their passion and prolific work. The opportunity to be seen on the same plane and exist in the same realm as these bands was something incredible and surreal, (still is…) but felt extremely natural.
“The support and confidence that Max and the entire EVR/Rory team has shown us has been incredible, so working with them seemed like the perfect place for our music to live. We are looking forward to making our best art to contribute to this culture we have grown up around.”
Backwards Dancer's self-titled, debut full-length will drop on March 3. Catch them on tour with Eisley and Civilian this February and March.
