Published May 15, 2009Bridge 9 hardcore kids Have Heart are living up to their moniker, embarking on one of the heartiest, ballsiest world tours around. Joined by Boston buds Shipwreck A.D. for most of the dates, the youth crew masters are embarking on the incredibly ambitious "The End of the World Tour," a trip that will see the bands make their way to all corners of the Earth.
Kicking off last week in China, the touring buds will spend the rest of the month in Asia and Australia before spending much of next month in South America. Then, July will see the bands bring the mosh to much of Europe and even Africa, and finally, in August the groups will make their way to Canada for a comprehensive tour that includes most major cities. From there, they will head to Central America before making one final run through the U.S. in September.
Many dates are subject to minor changes but be sure to peep the itinerary here.
Have Heart are touring behind last year's Songs to Scream at the Sun, while Shipwreck A.D. are supporting Abyss.
Sadly, it appears this will be Have Heart's last tour, as they have announced they will be breaking up when they get home. In a statement, front-man Patrick Flynn said, "Once the fall rolls around, we can't really do this band the way we would prefer to anymore. Knowing this deadline of ours and having a whole world tour already booked, we'd like to take advantage of the chance to say goodbye to all the people we have met around the world over the years."
Still, in the next few months the band will be accomplishing more than many bands do in their entire careers.
