The tour marks the band’s return to the road after their extremely successful 2021 US tour in support of their 2020 chart topping release, Afterburner. The album hit the charts twice last year, first following its initial digital release in April 2020 and a second time for its physical release in July 2020. The Afterburner 2021 US Tour, although being one of the first coast-to-coast indoor tours to hit the road post-pandemic, was successfully completed and saw Dance Gavin Dance sell a whopping 78,500 tickets across 33 shows making it the band’s biggest tour to date.
