The Draft Announce Tour DatesThe Draft, three-fourths of legendary post-punk outfit Hot Water Music, have announced that they will embark on a two-week US tour this summer to play their first live shows in almost 5 years (all tour dates below). Frontman/guitarist Chris Wollard, bassist Jason Black and drummer George Rebelo formed The Draft in 2006 and released their debut album, In a Million Pieces, that year on Epitaph Records. Following the release of In a Million Pieces, the band toured heavily and subsequently self-released an EP, 2007's The Draft, and the "We'll Never Know/Hard to Be Around" 7" on No Idea, also in 2007.

Fresh off a year spent hard at work on the road in support of the new Hot Water Music record, Exister, the members of The Draft are eager for the chance to continue to share the stage. Said Black of their decision to tour again this summer, "We just decided, 'why not?' It's a short, fun run and we like playing music together."

It's clear that the members of The Draft not only enjoy creating music together but that they're back in a big way and ready to take the US by storm with the announcement of these new dates.

TOUR DATES:
7/17 - Washington, DC @ The Rock & Roll Hotel
7/18 - Richmond, VA @ Kingdom
7/19 - Brooklyn, NY @ St. Vitus
7/20 - Philadelphia, PA @ North Star Bar
7/21 - Boston, MA @ Middle East*
7/23 - Albany, NY @ Bogies
7/24 - Pittsburgh, PA @ The Smiling Moose
7/25 - Cleveland, OH @ Now That's Class
7/26 - Detroit, MI @ Magic Stick*
7/27 - Chicago, IL @ Lincoln Hall
7/28 - St. Louis, MO @ The Firebird

* = w/ Tim Barry, Cory Branan, Des Ark

So is this their answer to when Chuck goes on solo tours? Also, is this before or after the Social D tour? I'm at work and can't really look it up.

Their lone full-length is awesome, I was just listening to it last night, for the first time in at least five years. Weird.

I like the Draft record more than The New What Next. Hot Water Music, Chuck solo and the Draft in a span of 8 months is heavenly.

Would love to see the Draft (well haven't seen HWM yet either). I think it's the act where George lets loose the most on the drums. Love the album so much.

I wish The Draft could get over this direction a little further. I'd love to see these guys but there's just no way to justify driving to Chicago to see 'em.

I dig the three releases they've put out (that's all I've got of theirs, anwyay). I'm not sure what the future holds for them but I'm happy for the time I've spent with their tunes, for sure.
