Transit have set an April 2nd release date for their new studio album, "Young New England."

The band recording the album with with Ted Hutt (The Gaslight Anthem, Flogging Molly) and Gary Cioffi ("Listen & Forgive").

Lead singer Joe Boynton had this to say, "The whole process came very naturally; we started writing songs in early summer of 2012 on the Warped Tour. We're all very proud of Young New England because we feel that it paints a clear picture of who we are, and where we're from."

Guitarist Tim Landers adds, "This album is different. We're always progressing and growing. We've been close like family for so long that the songs, in a way, just write themselves. This time around we just wanted to really make a statement of who and what Transit really is. I can confidently say we accomplished that."

Transit will also be launching spring headline tour featuring support from Seahaven and Young Statues, starting April 5 in Hamden, CT and finishing in Montreal, QC on May 17.

In addition to their tour, the band is scheduled to co-headline the second night of Today's Mixtape Festival with The Story So Far and label mates Man Overboard on April 6 in Patchogue, NY and is confirmed to play the return of Skate and Surf Festival on May 18 in Freehold, NJ, as well as Pouzza Fest in Montreal, May 19 and Slam Dunk Festival in the UK, May 25-27
