[Photos via Press and Artists’ Spotify]

Elder emos rejoice! Hawthorne Heights frontman JT Woodruff has announced the 20 Years Of Tears Tour. The Ohio natives will bring along Saosin, Thursday, Anberlin, Armor For Sleep, and Emery for support across various dates. Plus, fans can see I See Stars, Cartel, This Wild Life, Stick To Your Guns, and more perform on select dates. Tickets go on sale this Friday, April 19, at 10 AM local time, with pre-sales starting tomorrow, Wednesday, April 17.

The tour is a celebration of the Myspace generation and the impact these scene staples have had, and continue to have, in the alternative music genre. “This is not just a summer concert, it is a must-see event that can reignite the fire inside all of us as we sing and scream together like it’s 2004,” Woodruff says. “Emo comes in all shapes and sizes and has touched the hearts and minds of people from all walks of life. This lineup is designed to give you the energy you had while feeling so misunderstood as a ‘misguided’ youth.”

Between these dates, the acts will make stops at the summer’s Is For Lovers Festival. Check out tour dates below, and grab tickets here.
