June 13, 2017 - Bayside has announced The Walking Wounded Tour; a series of US headline shows celebrating the 10th anniversary of their third full-length album. The ten-day run kicks off in Baltimore on September 9thand concludes at Riot Fest in Chicago on September 16th. Bayside will also be bringing the album to Santa Ana on November 4th, as well as the U.K. for multiple dates in December. Presale begins today at 12pm local time at baysidebayside.com, and tickets will be available to the general public on Friday, June 16th.
"The Walking Wounded was a really important record for us both personally and career wise. It was the record that got us back on our feet after our accident and also marked a big breakout for us professionally," lead singer Anthony Raneri explains."It was the first record and touring cycle that we did with the current line up. We felt it was important to celebrate the ten year anniversary of such an important time in our lives."
He adds: "We wanted this to be more of an event. A celebration. So instead of doing the shows on a grand scale, we decided to only do a few of them and scale back the sizes of the venues from where we've been playing for the last few years. We wanted this to feel special for the fans in attendance and for us on stage."
In addition to announcing their upcoming tour, Bayside has also shared a brand new video for their track "Rumspringa (Return To Heartbreak Road)," off the band's latest album Vacancy. About the video, Raneri shares, "I love the 'Rumspringa' video. It is comprised of all footage from our 2016 Fall tour, both live and behind the scenes. I love that I'll always have it as a video yearbook to remind me of the tour and the album release and how much fun we had doing it."
Bayside released their seventh studio album Vacancy on August 19th, 2016. It was written during an uncertain time for Raneri - the end of a relationship and the beginning of a mission of reflection and self-examination - and represents a case study in self-acceptance. He admits those twelve compositions are especially cathartic because he was literally "coming to terms with what my life was becoming."
