Heavens, the new collaboration between Alkaline Trio's Matt Skiba and his friend Josiah Steinbrick, has just announced tour dates in support of their recently released debut album, Patent Pending. The live incarnation of the band will feature Skiba, Steinbrick, former Engine Down drummer Matt Comption, producer/bassist Ben Lovett (Dangermouse), as well as a few others.
The trek kicks off on October 24 in Seattle and wraps up on November 17 in Chicago, hitting major markets across North America along the way. LA's Darker My Love (DangerBird Records) will be supporing all dates, so get there early.
If you're not familiar with the music of Heavens, you're in luck, because they were featured in last week's Tripwire Podcast. Go check it out.
