Morning Recap: Jenny Owen Youngs Comes Out, Replacements Reunite, Riot Lineups, blink Tour?
Jenny Owen Youngs took the brave step to come out as “super gay” yesterday and to announce that she is soon to be married to her partner. Youngs wrote a very open letter to her fans and the world, and it’s certainly worth reading.
The Replacements are headlining all three festivals. blink-182, Brand New, Fall Out Boy, and A Day To Remember included in the lineups. Check out all of the details above.
Wait, did we mention that The Replacements are reuniting and playing shows together for the first time in 22 years? Cool. Just checking.
If you take a look at their tour routing, it seems necessary for sake of travel that blink add somewhere from five to ten headlining dates on their own to their summer dates. Fingers crossed.
That’s a big number. Sleeping With Sirens’ last EP debuted with 18,000 copies sold in its first week. This is by far and away both the band and Rise Records’ best selling album of all time. A big congrats to everyone involved.
