The Promise Ring

Recently reunited emo heroes The Promise Ring, who still haven't released more info on that rarities comp due this summer via Dangerbird, played NYC at Irving Plaza on May 20th with Waivers, the day after the band played Bamboozle in NJ. Pictures and the setlist from the NYC show are in this post (Bamboozle pics are on the way).

No more NYC dates scheduled at the moment, but the band do have a handful of US dates slated for this summer. Those include Bumbershoot, a return to Chicago (where they played earlier this year) for Riotfest, and a visit to Riotfest Philadelphia too. All dates are listed with the rest of the pictures below.
