O.A.R. breaks from studio for "Sounds of Summer" outing
O.A.R. will take a break from recording to hit the road for a two-month "Sounds of Summer Tour" of the U.S.
The Maryland-based rockers will begin the journey with a June 7 appearance at Harborfest in Norfolk, VA, followed by 26 major market stops throughout the eastern U.S. The five-piece rock act will wrap up the theater and festival run with an Aug. 3 show in Holmdel, NJ.
Ticketing information is available now at the band's website.
The rock outfit, comprised of Marc Roberge (vocals, guitar), Chris Culos (drums), Richard On (guitar), Benj Gershman (bass) and Jerry DePizzo (sax, guitar, percussion), most recently released "King." The effort, which hit retailers in August 2011 via Wind-Up Records, marks the group's seventh studio album. The collection peaked at No. 12 on The Billboard 200 and at No. 2 on the magazine's Top Rock Albums chart.
O.A.R. is currently in the studio working on their eighth full-length album, according to a press release. No word yet on when that collection will be unveiled.
