Warped Tour is here, but there are too many other great tours this summer to not head out to. Whether it’s I Am The Avalanche and Somos or Nine Inch Nails and Soundgardner, there’s a little something for everyone. We decided to put together a new PropertyOfZack Discussion on all the “must see” tours this summer, so check them out below and feel free to reblog with the tours you can’t wait to see!
I Am The Avalanche, Somos
With the recent release of their third full length record Wolverines, Avalanche has been on the road essentially nonstop, taking this July/August to storm up and down the I-95 corridor between the greater tri-states and Florida. Even with the recent departure of founding members Mike Ireland and Kellen Robson, the NYC band is pushing on as a 4-piece and sound just as scorching as ever, living out their mission statement of good vibes, good friends, and good times. With shining newcomers Somos along for the ride as well, and with the shows in intimate spaces like Saint Vitus in Brooklyn or the Camel in Richmond, the tour will easily be one of the most sweaty, boisterous, and fun runs that’ll come through the East Coast this summer. Hold tight onto your beers. - Adrienne Fisher
The Early November, I Can Make A Mess
Acoustic tours are great for many reasons: the smaller rooms, the calmer crowds, and the quiet nature, all of create a more intimate setting. And the best part about this intimate setting? It gives artist a chance to tell stories, talk about their inspirations, and strike up a genuine conversation with the audience. Sometimes they even take requests.
This summer The Early November is heading out on an acoustic tour that also features lead singer Ace Enders’ solo project, I Can Make A Mess. It’s a golden opportunity to see both the man and the band up close and stripped down – and definitely not one to be missed. - Becky Kovach
Touché Amoré, Tigers Jaw
Even though at first glance is seems that someone threw the names of all the bands from our circle into a bag and pulled out three random ones for this tour, in actuality, the lineup really couldn’t make more sense. It’s a meeting of the minds for three separate sonic corners of modern day punk/emo/hardcore, featuring three extraordinary and prolific bands - it’s a rare no-filler, no-bullshit bill.
