Bowling for Soup

US punk-poppers Bowling for Soup have already played a dozen or so UK dates in 2011 [the tour was 'An acoustic evening with Jaret and Erik', actually - Ed], and headlined the Jager Stage at the Download festival at Donington, but still we want more and the Texan four-piece have obliged, announcing another thirteen dates for the autumn.

'BFS' have produced eleven studio albums since forming in 1994. The most recent, 'Fishin' for Woos', was released in April 2011 and a twelfth is already being scheduled for release in 2012. Fans can expect the new-ish material on the autumn tour and perhaps a sneaky peek at the even newer material for next year's record.

Although 2002's 'Drunk Enough to Dance' was their UK career highpoint, it was the follow-up, 2004's 'A Hangover You Don't Deserve', that provided the highlight of their career to date in the US. The record turned gold there and saw BFS nominated for a Grammy.

They also wrote the theme tune for the hit Disney show 'Phineas and Ferb' and even appeared in an episode as their animated selves, 2009's 'Phineas and Ferb's Quantum Boogaloo'.

Bowling for Soup kick off the UK dates at the Birmingham O2 Academy on the 16th October, with gigs in Oxford, Newcastle, Manchester and Lincoln, among others, before closing the tour at the HMV Forum in London on Friday 28th October.

Tickets for all dates will go on sale Friday 17th June at 9am, priced £18.50 (£19.50 for Stoke on 23rd October).
