O.A.R. set to roll on "Sounds of Summer" tour
Rock quintet O.A.R. will take a break from working on their eighth studio effort to head out on their "Sounds of Summer" trek across North America early next month.
The 34-city road trip gets started June 7 in Norfolk, VA, and works its way throughout the eastern half of the nation. The summer outing currently wraps Aug. 16 in Arnolds Park, IA.
The majority of shows will feature opening support from Andrew McMahon and Allen Stone.
Like previous tours, O.A.R. will partner with Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA) to offer free tickets to U.S. veterans. Qualified fans can request tickets at the organization's website.
O.A.R. is currently working on the group's eighth full-length album, which will follow 2011's "King." That collection peaked at No. 12 on The Billboard 200 and at No. 2 on the magazine's Rock Albums chart.
