Florida musician Aaron Gillespie, who is best known for his work in Underoath and The Almost, is ready to release his new solo album Out of the Badlands, which is slated to be released on August 19 via Tooth and Nail Records. Today, the artist announced a headlining acoustic tour to support the release.
The trek will kicks off on September 19 at the Brighton Music Hall in Boston, Massachusetts, and it will conclude with a stop at The Vera Project in Seattle, Washington on October 29. Gillespie will be joined The Early November frontman Ace Enders, who is touring in support of his latest studio album Hiraeth, and The Movielife vocalist Vinnie Caruana, who released his debut solo album Survivor’s Guilt back in May.
