FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
MXPX ALL STARS TO TOUR THE U.S. FOR THE FIRST TIME
Dates With Pennywise and Unwritten Law
Los Angeles, CA, August 8, 2012 - After two trips to Europe, a stint in Asia, and performances in Australia, Mexico and Japan, it's time for MXPX ALL STARS to announce their first U.S. tour. Up first are four dates with Pennywise, kicking off on October 25 in Fort Lauderdale, FL, and ending on October 28 in Atlanta, GA. After, MXPX ALL STARS will co-headline some East Coast dates with Unwritten Law, starting on October 29 in Columbia, SC. For a full list of tour dates, please see below.
In 2010 the ALL STAR version of Bremerton, WA's infamous pop-punk trio, MxPx, originated as an outlet for frontman and bassist Mike Herrera to still tour while guitarist Tom Wisniewski and drummer Yuri Ruley took time off. After the success of 2010's Japan and Asia shows and 2011's Soundwave Festival dates throughout Australia, featuring Ataris frontman Kris Roe on guitar and Chris Wilson of The Summer Obsession on drums, Herrera decided to keep the momentum going and the impromptu performances alive by shaking up the line-up a bit.
Recently, MXPX ALL STARS did two European runs with Switzerland-based trio Cancer as backing band. This time around, the line-up will feature Herrera along with Jose Garzon of FLF on guitar, Jack Parker of Tumbledown on guitar and Harley Trotland of Tumbledown on drums.
The band is touring in support of MxPx's 20th anniversary and the release of their ninth full-length album, Plans Within Plans (MRI/Rock City Recording Company).
Staying true to both themselves and their sound, MxPx have remained one of pop-punk's most well-respected names for two decades. Fans will definitely be given the chance to reminisce with the band through a set list of both old and new tracks through the years.
