Straylight Run Headline Alternative Press/Vans Tour

Published: 2005-03-15
Thanks to the teamwork of Alternative Press and Vans, the continent will be provided with a spring tour that attempts to please emo, punk, and indie fans all in one swipe. The five-week-long jaunt will hit 28 cities in April and May, with headliners Straylight Run taking four other bands in tow: Minus The Bear, Gratitude, The Honorary Title, and Spitalfield.

The inaugural run of the Alternative Press/Vans tour is set to kick off on April 2nd in Rhode Island, and continue on until May 6th when the five bands hit Hartford, Connecticut. There are just two Canadian stops pencilled into the itinerary; Toronto and Montreal both made it into the final dates of the cross-continent jaunt.

Taking top spot on the bill, Straylight Run are touring in support of their well received self-titled debut album, which hit stores in late 2004. Taking things from emo to indie are The Honorary Title, who put out their latest "Anything Else But The Truth" last summer. Gratitudes' eponymous debut just received release this March, while Seattle's Minus The Bear are on their third record, a 6-song EP. Last but not least, punk act Spitalfield tour in support of their soon to be released "Stop Doing Bad Things".
