Hoobastank have announced dates for a headlining club tour today. Kicking off August 20th in San Antonio, TX Hoobastank wanted to give their fans the rare opportunity to hear new songs from their forthcoming album in an intimate setting. “We are so psyched to play our new songs for our fans in a small club atmosphere,” says Hoobastank singer, Doug Robb. “There is nothing better than that intimate environment where we can hang out with our fans.” Labelmates, Die Trying and Letter Kills will open up for Hoobastank on the entire club run.
Having spent the summer recording in their hometown of Los Angeles, Hoobastank is set to release their highly anticipated new album in November 2003. The as-yet-untitled album was produced by Howard Benson (P.O.D.). Hoobastank’s last album has been certified platinum by the RIAA and featured the hit singles “Crawling In The Dark” and “Running Away.” The band toured non-stop on the heels of the album’s release in 2001, stopping only to record the new album. They have recently played a few special shows including a headline performance at The U.S. Open of Surfing, as well as a benefit concert last month to raise money for a Calabasas, CA middle school, which earned $19,000.
