Smile Empty SoulCalifornia alternative rock trio has announced an extensive headlining tour, “The ‘Merican Chemicals Tour,” set to kick off next month. Support on the run will come from Acidic. A full list of confirmed tour-dates can be seen below.

Said guitarist/vocalist Sean Danielsen, “Our upcoming ”Merican Chemicals Tour’ is gonna be great! We’re hitting pretty much every area of the country, and we’ll be playing these songs from our new record Chemicals that we’re so excited about.”

is gearing up for the release of its sixth studio album Chemicals, due out October 1 on Two Disciples Entertainment.

Chemicals will be the first release on Two Disciples Entertainment, the band’s new imprint, which, in conjunction with Pavement Entertainment, will see the group controlling all aspects of marketing and promotion for the new record and impending tours.

“We’ve been on a different label with every release in our career, and we were tired of not being the priority,” said Danielsen. “We started our own label with a business partner who’s been a great friend to us over the last 10 years, and found distribution through some other long-time friends of ours. Now we’re running the campaign ourselves and we’re totally in control, doing what we feel needs to be done.”

According to the vocalist, fans can expect the same emotional rock the band has delivered since its inception in 1998, but with an evolved edge, sharpened from over a decade on the road. “Chemicals still has our signature sound,” he adds, “but it has its own feel apart from our other work. It’s a very raw album for today’s standards.”

The first single from Chemicals, “False Alarm,” is currently streaming on YouTube at:

  1. Black and Blue
  2. False Alarm
  3. Chemicals
  4. Balance
  5. Swim
  6. New Low
  7. Real
  8. Sitting Ducks
  9. Mechanical Rationality
  10. Landslide

Since its self-titled debut album on Atlantic Records in 2003, continues to be one of the most relentless, DIY bands in the industry. With countless successful tours, a top 10 single and a certified gold record under its belt, the band will continue its legacy this fall with the release of Chemicals.
