The tour follows the release of new album ‘Too’, which will be available on September 4. It was recorded in just two weeks with producer Jay Joyce. Frontman Zac Carper describes it as anything but “a standard rock record.”

“We could have made record number one again… but instead we decided to challenge ourselves and admit that we don’t know everything,” Carper said. “Up until this point we had recorded everything ourselves, so working with a producer taught us so much. I didn’t want to make a standard rock record. The goal for this album was to think outside the box and I think Jay really helped us do that.”

The ‘Too’ tracklisting is:

’40oz. On Repeat’
‘West Coast’
‘Why Generation’
‘Leave Me Alone’
‘Hey Johnny’
‘Stupid Decisions’
‘Bad Medicine’
‘Bad Habits’
