Post-hardcore supercollective Rival Schools have lined up a slew of dates with the Gaslight Anthem through the early days of October around the United States.
The shows start with at the tail end of September at New York’s famed Radio City Music Hall before hitting the states of Virginia, Georgia, Florida and Texas. The band wrap up the short run with a solo headlining gig in Texas October 10th supported by Fake Problems and Look Mexico.
In bigger news, the often-discussed, much delayed, sometimes-cancelled second LP from Rival Schools has now been given a tentative release date of “early 2011”. The follow-up to 2001’s United By Fate was originally scheduled for a 2003 release, but the dissolve of the band led to the scrapping of the album.
Now 9 years later, Walter Schreifels, Sammy Siegler, Ian Love, and Cache Tolman are back on the road and working on new material having recently performed festival stages through the world. A new track, “Shot After Shot”, is expected to be released in November with an accompanying video to follow. Anticipation continues to grow for their long awaited new album, now there’s nothing left to do but wait.
