The Matches Announce Alternative Press Tour Dates

The Matches checked in with their MySpace friends on Friday (January 11) with a bulletin on their upcoming tour. They write:

We will be taking part in the Alternative Press Tour this
spring! We’ll be batting 3rd with The Rocket Summer and All Time Low co-headlining
plus Sonny (ex-From First To Last singer) and Forever The Sickest Kids
opening. This tour will be 7 weeks long and cover a whole lot of the US
plus Toronto in the lovely country of Canada. We even get to play some
cities we’ve never been to before (hello Des Moines, hello Louisville,
hello Allentown!) Tickets don’t go on sale until January 23, but most of
the dates are listed below…more info can be found at
and check back to and our myspace page for more info once
all of the dates are confirmed next week. Here’s some info straight from
the horse’s mouth (aka

We know everyone’s been waiting (not so) patiently for these dates,
so without further ado, we give you the (almost complete) AP Tour routing.
Note there are still a few TBA dates and a couple missing venues. We promise
we’ll fill you in as soon as we know. Until then, bust out Google Maps
and plan your spring trip to the AP Tour stop nearest you! Now, things
you should know:

1. Tickets will be no more than $15 per show. In many cities it will
be cheaper!

2. Every ticket purchased to the AP Tour entitles you to a complimentary
1-year subscription to AP. No joke, no hidden fees, no bills. You buy a
ticket? You get 12 issues for free. If you already have a subscription,
you can give the free subscription to a friend instead — talk about a
great way to become BFFs! More details on this are coming soon.

3. We will be handing out free posters of each of the bands on the AP
Tour at every single show, too — get stoked.

4. The pre-sale for the AP Tour will run from Jan. 22-25 through Ducat
King, with tickets going on sale to the public Jan. 26. Stay tuned for
more details on that, too.
