FOUR YEAR STRONG have announced that they will be extending their Australian visit this January, taking Rise or Die Trying on the road to celebrate the album’s 10th anniversary. Special guests on all dates on their UNIFY sideshows will be Kentucky natives, KNOCKED LOOSE.
Four Year Strong had this to say when they announced the first run of anniversary dates in the US:
“In 2007 we put out a record called Rise or Die Trying, starting us down a path that would lead us all over the world, and drastically change our lives. With 2017 marking the 10 year anniversary, it’s time to say thank you. Thank you to everyone that came out and supported our young band, thank you to everyone who still goes crazy at shows when we play RODT songs, and thank you to a record that gave us these last 10 years.” Over the next year we will be announcing Rise or Die Trying 10 year shows all over the world where we will be playing the record front to back.”
They kept true to that promise and will be touring the record Down Under on the back of their appearance at UNIFY 18 in January. The announcement also follows the release of their acoustic b-sides record Some Of You Will Like This // Some Of You Won’t via Pure Noise Records.
Label mates KNOCKED LOOSE released their debut album, Laugh Tracks, in 2016 and will return to Australia in 2018 after previously touring with Stick To Your Guns in January 2017. THE GOV, ADELAIDE TUESDAY JANUARY 9*
