The Almost announces tour

THURSDAY, April 12 at the HOUSE OF BLUES (on Sunset)
FRIDAY, April 13, at the HOUSE OF BLUES (on Sunset)

Ticket price: $15.99


FRIDAY, April 13-THE ALMOST will be performing at the Vans Warped Tour Kick-off party at the Key Club (with The Briggs, K-Os and Meg & Dia)
Ticket price: $10.00

THE ALMOST--the brainchild of Underoath drummer/vocalist AARON GILLESPIE--will release their debut SOUTHERN WEATHER April 3 through a first-ever joint venture with Tooth & Nail and Virgin Records.

GILLESPIE--who sings and performs virtually every note and instrument on his solo debut--teamed with acclaimed producer Aaron Sprinkle (Pedro The Lion) for SOUTHERN WEATHER.

The album kicks off with the percussion-driven first single "Say This Sooner" which after building a buzz on the Internet and Satellite Radio is now impacting terrestrial radio and already received early adds this week at: WSUN Tampa, WXDX Pittsburgh, WGRD Grand Rapids, WTZB Sarasota, WCYY Portland, WARQ Columbia, SC, KTEG Albuquerque and WBSX Wilkes Barre, PA just to name a few. Look for the new video to debut soon.

Album highlights include the alt-country inspired "Dirty And Left Out," which features a guest vocal collaboration with Sunny Day Real Estate singer Jeremy Enigk; the inventive Thursday-meets-Oasis vibe of "Everyone Here Smells Like A Rat;" and the breathtaking, undying roar of "I Mostly Copy Other People," which benefits from the bass and guest vocal work of The Starting Line's Kenny Vasoli.

THE ALMOST will join Say Anything and Saves The Day for a West Coast tour beginning in mid-April, to be followed by an East Coast trek in early May with Paramore (see dates below). Later this summer, the group will join the majority of the Vans Warped Tour. On the road, GILLESPIE leads THE ALMOST on vocals and guitar and is joined by: Jay Vilardi (guitar), Alex Aponte (bass) and Kenny Bozich (drums).
