Motion City Soundtrack went on an indefinite hiatus in 2016, but singer Justin Courtney Pierre continued to stay active with his solo project, and then MCS teased something for New Year’s Eve (12/31/19) earlier this month. Well, it didn’t take long to find out that not only are Motion City Soundtrack reuniting for a New Year’s Eve show in Chicago, they’re also embarking on a lengthy tour right afterwards, hitting the NYC-area, Boston, Philly, Nashville, Dallas, Denver, LA, Portland, Cleveland, Detroit, and more in January 2020. “Don’t call it a comeback,” they say.

The NYC-area shows happen at Long Island’s Paramount Theatre on January 7, Manhattan’s Webster Hall on January 8, and NJ’s Starland Ballroom on January 10. Tickets for Paramount, Webster, and Starland go on sale Friday (6/21) at 10 AM with presales beforehand. All dates are listed below.

Meanwhile, Justin Courtney Pierre is opening one of the Jawbox reunion shows.
