Hawthorne Heights, Thursday, Saosin & more booked for 20 Years Of Tears U.S. Summer Tour

20 years of tears tour

The "20 Years Of Tears" tour is set to embark on a 56-date journey across the U.S., showcasing a dynamic lineup with core co-headliners Hawthorne Heights, Thursday, Saosin, and Anberlin. The tour kicks off in June and concludes in mid-September.

The tour will also feature I See Stars, Cartel, Armor For Sleep, Stick To You Guns, Emery, and This Wild Life on select dates. 

Hawthorne Heights will be performing their debut album, The Silence in Black and White, in its entirety.

The "20 Years Of Tears" tour includes the recently announced Is For Lovers Festival dates, where artists from the tour lineup will perform at multiple festival stops.

Tickets for all tour dates will go on sale this Friday, April 19, at 10 am local time, with various pre-sale options starting tomorrow.

JT Woodruff, vocalist of Hawthorne Heights and the mastermind behind the tour, as well as the co-founder of the ongoing Is For Lovers Festival, shared the following:

20 Years of Tears is a celebration of the genre that raised an entire generation, with basement-born bands to stadium headliners. Emo comes in all shapes and sizes and has touched the hearts and minds of people from all walks of life. With some of the biggest names of the MySpace Generation, this lineup is designed to give you the energy you had while feeling so misunderstood, as a 'misguided' youth.  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.
