Tigers Jaw‘s self-titled sophomore album will be turning 10 this year and in order to celebrate, the band will be hitting the road for a massive fall tour.
Joining the band on their 29-date trek across North America is the Sidekicks, Cave People (09/13-09/28) and Cherry (09/29-10/19.) The fall tour kicks off Sept. 17 in Amityville, New York, and it wraps up Oct. 19 in Scranton, Pennsylvania.
Tickets for the tour go on sale this Friday at 10 am local time, with presale tickets available if you sign up for the band’s mailing list. You can purchase your tickets here. Check out the full list of cities and dates below!
In a Facebook post announcing the anniversary tour, the band shared:
“Ten short years ago, we released our self-titled album. Recorded on nights and weekends at JL Studios in Wyoming PA during our high school years, it was our first time setting foot in a studio. The raw energy and youthful intuition (or lack thereof!) of those songs are the monument of a really special and formative time for us. There were no rules, no preconceived notions of how anything should sound, nothing more complicated than some friends making music together because it was fun.
Lucky for us, it’s still fun, and fulfilling, and amazing that we get to travel and make music. After all these years, these songs still resonate strongly with us and with so many others, so we have decided to honor it with an anniversary tour.
We will play a set of various songs from other albums, and then finish the set by playing the self-titled album, sequentially in its entirety. Joining us on this tour are some bands/friends that have been in our lives dating back to the time when this album was released….”
