Take Action Tour 2011 Dates Revealed

The dates for the Take Action Tour 2011 have been announced.

Co-headliners Silverstein and Bayside will kick off the tour on April 22 with support from Polar Bear Club, The Swellers and Texas in July.

The tour will help raise funds and awareness for Sex, Etc., “a national organization dedicated to providing and promoting comprehensive sexuality education to young people and the adults who teach them.”

“Growing up, every local show we played was a charity show,” says Silverstein vocalist Shane Told. “It was an important part of the scene that we were doing what we loved and more importantly helping others. To step back into that and work with our label to give back, it feels really great. We were a part of Take Action Tour in 2006, and when we had the opportunity to co-headline the tour this year, we jumped at the chance. We couldn’t be more proud to be leading the charge this year with our best friends, Bayside.”

Bayside bassist Nick Ghanbarian stated, “We’re really excited to be part of Take Action Tour because we’ve never been on a tour where part of the proceeds is going to charity which is great. We’re also super excited to be heading out on the road with some friends that we haven’t played with in years!”
