Rancid and Rise Against to Tour

Posted by - 03:48 PM on 01/21/09
Rancid and Rise Against will tour together this summer.
Message From the BandFew things are more exciting than watching Bush finally release America as his eight year hostage, but if anything could rival that news, it's this: We are more than pleased to announce that we will have the honor of touring the US & Canada with punk rock legends RANCID this summer. If Tim Armstrong didn't confirm it personally backstage in LA a few weeks ago, we wouldn't believe it either.

In the meantime, off to Europe with Anti-Flag, Strike Anywhere and the Flobots...stay tuned for updates from the road...and go check out our going away present to W, in the form of our new video for "Audience Of One."

Add Bad Religion to this tour and think you would have the tour of the year, hands down.

Also, I wonder who is headlining?

My guess is RA because of their larger fanbase but I'm sure there are going to be a lot of pissed off Rancid fans.

It'll probably be one of those "co-headlining" tours where it's not actually a co-headlining tour (i.e., they both play for an hour or so but Rise Against closes out each night). I would be shocked if Rancid closed it out.

Two Warped Tour veterans on the road together sounds like an amazing concept. I'm not a big fan on Rancid but I would def recommend going to it.
