MXPX frontman Mike Herrera has announced an East Coast acoustic tour with Gasoline Heart's Louis DeFabrizio.
Herrera has broadened his fanbase with the debut of his alt-country band, Tumbledown, and tapped into his 50's/60's melodic rock side project Arthur late last year.
Herrera will be performing a set list full of MXPX, Arthur and Tumbledown songs. With the set lists varying from city to city, fans are encouraged to shout out their favorite tracks for a possible impromptu addition.
"I'm excited to finally be able to reach our East Coast fans who have been waiting too long for one of my bands to come through town," said Herrera. "This tour will allow me to truly connect with MxPx, Arthur and Tumbledown fans in an intimate setting, which will hopefully suffice the long wait!"
In addition to special tour merch packages, the tour will be the first chance for fans to purchase Mike Herrera: Live From The Basement, a release that truly captures the essence of the tour. "I don't want fans to think this is a solo album," said Herrera. "It's just a live recording of me, performing my songs in my basement. I want fans to be able to take a similar version of what they heard on this tour home with them." The album will be available online starting the first day of the tour, Thursday, April 21 through www.mxpx.com and www.tumbledownhq.com only.
