Celebrating Music Of The MySpace Generation, With I SEE STARS, CARTEL, ARMOR FOR SLEEP And More Appearing

- advertisement -
The 20 Years Of Tears Tour, a once-in-a-lifetime 56-date, U.S. trek featuring varying line-ups surrounding core co-headliners Hawthorne Heights, Thursday, Saosin and Anberlin, kicks off this June before wrapping up in mid-September.

JT Woodruff, Hawthorne Heights vocalist and the architect behind the tour, as well as the co-founder of the ongoing Is For Lovers Festival, explains the inspiration for this not-to-be-missed touring event, which sees his band playing their debut album, The Silence in Black and White, in its entirety: "20 Years of Tears is a celebration of the genre that raised an entire generation, with basement-born bands to stadium headliners. Emo comes in all shapes and sizes and has touched the hearts and minds of people from all walks of life. With some of the biggest names of the MySpace Generation, this lineup is designed to give you the energy you had while feeling so misunderstood, as a 'misguided' youth. This is not just a summer concert, it is a must-see event that can reignite the fire inside all of us as we sing and scream together like it's 2004."

The tour incorporates the recently announced Is For Lovers Festival dates, with The 20 Years of Tears artists playing multiple Is For Lovers dates as well.

Tickets for all dates are on-sale this Friday, April 19, at 10 am local time with various pre-sales offered beginning tomorrow. For further information, VIP packages and ticketing links, visit Hawthorneheights.com.
