Four Year Strong announced dates for the first U.S. leg of the Rise Or Die Trying world tour.
New England punk rock band Four Year Strong is celebrating the 10th anniversary of their coveted album Rise or Die Trying in 2017 and has announced plans for a “USA Takeover: Part 1” tour that will take place at intimate venues across the country this spring. The tour will kick off in Pawtucket, RI on March 10th and will include support from bands Can’t Swim, Light Years, Sleep On It and local punk acts handpicked by the band. Tickets go on sale January 13th at 12:00PM local time. Additional dates are expected to be announced soon.
In a statement on their Instagram page the band said:
"In 2007 we put out a record called Rise or Die Trying, starting us down a path that would lead us all over the world, and drastically change our lives. With 2017 marking the 10 year anniversary, it's time to say thank you. Thank you to everyone that came outand supported our young band, thank you to everyone who still goes crazy at shows when we play RODT songs, and thank you to a record that gave us these last ten years.
Over the next year we will be announcing Rise or Die Trying 10 year shows all over the world where we will be playing the record front to back. Today we announce the first set of dates in the U.S. We are doing these shows at smaller, intimate venues to really make it something special. Shout these songs with us. Take the stage. Jump on it. Jump off it. This is for you.
Keep a look out for more shows being announced later in the year, if these don't come near you and for some special events as well. So come out and get crazy with us as we play the record that brought us to you in the first place. Rise or Die Trying."
