Following Friday’s sad news of recent Substream cover stars Motion City Soundtrack deciding to end their band after a near-two-decade run, the band has announced the routing for their final tour. Dubbed “So Long, Farewell Tour,” the trek will kick off in Portland, Oregon, on May 5 and run through June 24 in the band’s hometown of Minneapolis, Minnesota, with a random New Jersey date thrown in two months later. The band has indicated that “a few more dates” are still TBA, which might fill in some of the gaps around that New Jersey show.

The band has still not made an official statement about Tony Thaxton returning to the drum throne, however both Friday’s note and today’s tour dates announcement were signed with Tony’s name alongside the other four members of the band. Expect Thaxton’s involvement to be confirmed shortly.

The Spill Canvas and Microwave will support the first half of the tour, with with Have Mercy supporting the second half alongside Let It Happen and Light Years. As soon as we have clarification, we’ll bring it to you.
