Prepare yourself for a major dose of nostalgia with Motion City Soundtrack this winter. The band recently announced they will be celebrating a whopping two decades of I Am The Movie with a tour.

Featuring the likes of “The Future Freaks Me Out” and “My Favorite Accident,” the 2003 LP is getting the full album playthrough treatment beginning on December 30. Plus, Gully Boys, Minnesota’s premier grunge-pop quartet, will be hitting the road alongside the band as support.

In a recent Instagram post, Motion City Soundtrack shared that they’re bringing their songs to smaller venues across the nation to make it feel like the good ol’ days. They said, “Hello friends! This summer marked 20 years since we released I Am The Movie with the fine folks at Epitaph Records. We feel that a celebration is in order, so we’re going to do a limited run of live shows where we will perform I Am The Movie in its entirety (and lots more)! Many of these shows will be in smaller, more intimate venues – and that is by design. We want it to feel a bit like it did back when we released the record in 2003.”
