The Menzingers announce tour and live/acoustic EP (dates)

The Menzingers at Riot Fest Brooklyn 2012 (more by Gretchen Robinette)
Scranton's The Menzingers had one of my favorite albums of last year with the emotionally charged heartland punk of On The Impossible Past and did a fair amount of touring in support of it. They'll continue to support the album on a tour this year with Fake Problems, Restorations, and Captain, We're Sinking. That tour is hitting mostly small venues, including Brooklyn's Saint VItus on June 11. Tickets for that show are on sale now.
The Menzingers are also offering a premium ticket package for every show on the tour, which includes a ticket, the tour poster (pictured below), a 6-song digital EP that they're putting out specially for this tour which features live and acoustic versions of previously released material, a 15% off coupon for their online store, and a Menzingers koozie. Premium ticket packages are on sale now as well.
All dates are listed, along with a couple song streams, below...
The Menzingers - "Good Things"
The Menzingers - "The Obituaries"
