Anberlin frontman Stephen Christian admits he was starstruck all summer, when his band was opening for Smashing Pumpkins.
Following a handful of holiday radio gigs, Florida alt-rockers Anberlin will take to the road alongside Circa Survive for a winter run. Alice in Chains has firmed up a US outing for later this summer behind "Black Gives Way to Blue," the group's first studio album in more than a decade. Alkaline Trio has been tapped to headline next spring's "Pick Up The Phone Tour," which aims to raise awareness and funds for suicide prevention. Alt-rockers Anberlin will launch a US and Canadian headlining tour early next year to support their latest album, September's "New Surrender." Mention the label "Christian rock" to affable Anberlin frontman Stephen Christian and you're liable to be on the receiving end of a speech about the pitfalls of genres. Indie-rockers Dispatch have added a second show to their recently announced reunion at New York City's Madison Square Garden after selling out the first night in 30 minutes.
