Say Anything‘s followup to 2004’s now-classic Is A Real Boy, In Defense of the Genre, turns 10 this October. If you’re unfamiliar with the album, it’s a guest-filled double album with contributions from Caithlin De Marrais (Rainer Maria), Hayley Williams (Paramore), Chris Conley (Saves the Day), Adam Lazarra (Taking Back Sunday), Anna Waronker (that dog.), Gerard Way (My Chemical Romance), Matt Skiba (Alkaline Trio), Andy Jackson (Hot Rod Circuit), Anthony Green (Circa Survive), Pete Yorn, and more.

Say Anything will celebrate its anniversary with a tour that runs from late November through late January, with two nights in 19 cities. Each two-night stop will include a full-album performance of In Defense, plus Is A Real Boy and their 2009 self-titled album. Tickets for the whole tour are on fan presale now.

The tour includes NYC shows on January 14 and 15 at Irving Plaza. If you miss out on the fan presale, you can get tickets to those shows when the public on-sale starts Friday (8/25) at noon or when the Music Geeks/Live Nation presales start Thursday (8/24) at 10 AM.

Say Anything also play Riot Fest in September. All dates are listed below.
