Reel Big Fish set to join Bowling For Soup on US summer co-headline run

This summer, ska-punk and pop-punk worlds will collide on the just announced Reel Big Fish and Bowling For Soup co-headline tour. Surprisingly, the trek (which kicks off on June 19th), marks the first time the long-running bands have toured together. Joining them on leg one of the tour is special guest Nerf Herder (June 19-29) with MEST serving as the guest opener on leg two (July 21-Aug 3rd).

Alternative Press is hosting an exclusive presale for the tour starting on Wednesday, March 13 at 10 am local time and running until Thursday, March 14, 10 pm local time. General admission tickets for all shows will be on sale this Friday, March 15th at 10 am local time.

Bowling For Soup’s Jaret Reddick says, “There are those bands with which the fans tell you “you should tour with them’. Often, you make friends with those bands, and you always say to one another, ‘we GOTTA tour together.’ Well, both those things have been happening for years, and this summer, while on the final cross country Vans Warped Tour, Aaron from Reel Big Fish and I decided we were going to make it happen! And we did! I could NOT be more excited for this summer! Two of the most fun bands on the planet together at last! People will have sore faces from smiling after this one!”

In trademark fashion, Reel Big Fish frontman Aaron Barrett adds, “We’re still doing that tour? I thought I pulled the plug on that terrible idea a long time ago!“

As one of the key mid-90’s ska-punk bands to emerge out of Southern California’s third wave ska scene, along with acts like No Doubt and Sublime, Reel Big Fish’s popularity hasn’t faltered over the years. Distinguished by their hyperkinetic stage shows, sarcastic humor, ironic covers of new wave pop songs, and metallic shards of ska, the group continues to tour the world playing shows to a hardcore fanbase that’s as devoted as ever. The band’s 9th studio LP, ‘Life Sucks…Let’s Dance’ was released in late- 2018 and has garnered some of the best reviews of their lengthy career.
