Last year, Rocky Votolato released his latest album Hospital Handshakes on No Sleep, and this year Barsuk will reissue his 2006 album Makers for its 10th anniversary. The reissue "marks the first time Barsuk has released the album on LP format, and the first time it’s been pressed on high-quality 180-gram vinyl with a newly designed gatefold sleeve." Rocky also announced a tour where he'll play the album in its entirety, with support from Chris Staples (not to be confused with Chris Stapleton).

The tour hits NYC on September 16 at Mercury Lounge. Tickets for that show go on AmEx presale today (6/8) at noon with the general on-sale starting Friday (6/10) at noon.

All dates are listed, with a stream of Makers and a video of Rocky playing the title track acoustic at a house show, below.
