This summer’s tour will sweep the Pacific Northwest and West Coast with destinations including Sleep Train Amphitheatre in the band’s hometown of San Diego, a stop in Orange County, CA for the last season ever at the historic Irvine Meadows Amphitheatre and a performance at Berkeley’s iconic Greek Theatre, before heading to the East Coast in late July. The tour continues at an energetic pace with dates from Maine to Florida and onto the mid-West before coming to a close on August 28th in Detroit, MI. A full list of tour dates are below.

The idea is to create music that means something. There has to be two basic elements. You need the lyrical element and you need the instrumental element. You need to have lyrics with some thought — that is deep and profound. If you’re talking to me about an experience I’ve had, I’m gonna listen. If you’re talking about my love came, my love left me, now I’m alone… I’ve been through that so I can relate to that. Or if you’re like fuck I’m drunk again, I’m going to be hungover tomorrow, I’m down on my luck, things or tough, I’ve been through that too — I’m going to relate to that. I think there’s a certain element in lyrics that people connect to. There needs to be a story. Also, behind that story… If you had no music behind it then it’d just be poetry right? – Ryan Moran “Rymo”, Drums, Slightly Stoopid
