Knapsack have announced dates, cities and venues for their upcoming fall shows, their first since disbanding in early 1999. The dates mark the 15th anniversary of their final U.S. tour (with openers At the Drive-In, mind you) and will include a first-ever Florida appearance at The Fest.
"We are grateful for the opportunity to reconnect both as musicians and friends," said Colby Mancasola of the band he started with high school friend, Blair Shehan.
Knapsack released three influential albums and toured throughout the '90s. For 2013, the final lineup that recorded This Conversation Is Ending Starting Right Now, Shehan (The Jealous Sound), Mancasola and Sergie Loobkoff (Samiam) will be joined by former Thrice bassist, Ed Breckenridge. The band has no current plans to record new material or continue touring beyond 2013. So these dates are super special because it's the band's only activity on the docket.
Thursday October 24- San Francisco, CA- The Great American Music Hall
Friday, October 25- Los Angeles, CA- Echoplex
Sunday, November 3- Gainesville, FL- The Fest
Friday, November 15- Chicago, IL- Bottom Lounge
