Badflower is about to embark on a tour supporting Shinedown on their Attention Attention World Tour, but the they are already unveiling plans for the fall.
Badflower will be embarking on their first U.S. headliner, the OK, I’M SICK tour. Weathers and Dead Poet Society will join them on the tour, which kicks off in late September.
The band began teasing the tour yesterday, sharing a photo of their calendar with a “headline tour announce” event.
Frontman Josh Katz expressed his excitement for the run, saying, “We are so excited for our first official U.S. headline tour supporting our debut album. Every night will be a performance you will never forget. For better or for worse. 😵.”
Along with their energetic set each night, the band is partnering with Sea Shepherd Conservation Society (SSCS), an international non-profit, marine wildlife conservation organization. $1 from each ticket purchased will be donated to the organization.
Katz, who is a vegan, explained why the band chose to partner with SSCS for this tour.
“Animal rights are very important to me, but the bigger picture is that all life has value and my goal is to try to get, not just our fanbase, but the world, to think in those terms,” he explains. “We speak to many issues on the album, but this one speaks to my heart and that’s why we decided to incorporate a charitable donation into this tour. Sea Shepherd is the ideal choice for making changes on a global scale.”
The fall tour kicks off at the Louder Than Life festival in Louisville and runs through November. VIP tickets are on sale now here with general admission tickets available beginning Aug. 2 here.
