Nov 11 Grand Rapids, MI @ The Pyramid Scheme Press ReleaseLast month, vocalist Craig Owens announced ’An Evening with Craig Owens and Friends’, a fall solo tour that will be presented by Glamour Kills Clothing. Owens is pleased to announce that accompanying him on stage for the tour will be longtime friend and Chiodos bandmate Bradley Bell. Also announced today is the addition of three new tour dates to the run: November 4 in Indianapolis, IN, November 10 in Joliet, IL and November 11 in Grand Rapids, MI. Opening up on the entire tour will be Orlando, FL-based artist Bearcat.
“I am so excited to have Brad join me on this run for a few different reasons,” Owens explains. “Most of all, he is one of my closest friends, and has been for quite a while. We used to spend hours at the piano, singing covers of our favorite songs after school every day. This will be no different, except for the people in front of us, and the fact that most of these songs were written together by us. Some people have that person that helps them do what they do, the person that may be their opposite - but still somehow helps them achieve what they are looking to achieve by bringing that ‘yin to the yang’. Brad is that for me.”
Bell adds, “I’m looking forward to this fun little run! We’ve always worked well off each other and it will be a good up opportunity to rebuild chemistry while writing a new Chiodos album. Plus, tours like this help build character because you don’t have a wall of sound to hide behind. It makes you vulnerable and opens up a new side of you to everyone.”
“Together, music just makes sense, and what we are capable of when we work together is limitless. So having him come on this run to hang out, laugh, play some music, watch sports, and write when no one is looking is going to make this solo run unlike any other I’ve done,” concludes Owens.

Hmmm so does this mean they'll play some cinsun songs? That would be awesome.

All that wander are not lost
I think anyone with a remote interest in Craig or Chiodos (past or present) should read the Chiodos AP article, it's really great and really interesting

wasnt all his focus on solo stuff what caused the first rift with craig/chiodos? not trying to start shit, just honestly can't remember.

haha, this. But at least we know their writing it now.
Stoked for the GR show, was bummed when the last one got cancelled.

Why people still give this guy any attention. I mean, I'll be the first to admit that love Intensity In Ten Cities and enjoyed parts of Isles and Glaciers, but most of his stuff is terrible, especially that Drugs band.

He did some last time I saw him solo, I would be surprised if he didn't!
