What to do after you’ve just released your first album in sixteen years? Go on tour, of course. Veteran alt rockers Urge Overkill are doing exactly that in support of their latest studio release, Rock & Roll Submarine.
Nash Kato and company are starting things off right in Minneapolis on July 2nd and then heading to Milwaukee for Summerfest and Canada for shows in Toronto and Montreal. Stops in Philadelphia, New York, and Washington, DC follow close behind, with the tour wrapping up in Long Branch, NJ on July 15th. The band has a nice break (aka the month of August) before taking part in Seattle’s Bumbershoot Festival over Labor Day weekend. Tickets for all dates listed below can be purchased via the Urge Overkill tour page.
