Throughout the first leg of the U.S. tour beginning May 1, fans will receive a copy of MRVSS with the purchase of each ticket.
MRVSS is an arrival that’s been 25 years in the making for Ryan. "Everyone I know and love is in this record including myself, there’s a lot of myself in there. "It Could’ve Been Worse," "They Were Wrong," "Drunk And Disappointed," they all speak to where I’ve been, where my friends have been, but not where we’re going. I want us all to figure that out. I want everyone to win."
