Modern rock acts Grandaddy and Saves The Day will co-headline a spring tour due to launch March 1 in Santa Cruz, Calif. The six-week journey will also feature the Fire Theft, the Seattle-based group featuring three former members of Sunny Day Real Estate. The 41-date trek is scheduled to wrap April 17 in Los Angeles.
The tour is Grandaddy’s fourth major outing in support of last year’s V2 album, “Sumday,” which peaked at No. 84 on The Billboard 200. Grandaddy has recently toured with Pete Yorn and the Super Furry Animals.
The upcoming dates will be promoted with a free downloadable limited-edition EP available through Apple’s iTunes Music Store. A track list and release date for the EP will be announced shortly, and the digital songs will be available to fans that have purchased “Sumday.”
Saves The Day is touring in support of its DreamWorks debut, “In Reverie,” which peaked last year at No. 27 on The Billboard 200. The Fire Theft’s 2003 self-titled Rykodisc debut reached No. 11 on Billboard’s Heatseekers chart.
