As I’ve mentioned before, Alkaline Trio frontman Matt Skiba sets my heart all aflutter, and my husband Mike is a huge New Found Glory fan, so you can imagine the excitement in the Houser household when we found out that the two acts will be embarking on a co-headlining tour this fall.

For those unfamiliar with the bands, Chicago’s Alkaline Trio can get pretty dark with the lyrics, but their music packs a serious punk punch, and their melodies are so catchy, you won’t care that you’re singing along to lines like “shaking like a dog shitting razorblades.” How’s that for vivid imagery?

New Found Glory tackles many of the same topics as Alkaline Trio — girls, breakups, friendships, girls, and did I mention girls? — but through a decidedly more colorful prism. Their upbeat pop punk has received plenty of radio play over the years, so at the very least you’re probably familiar with their tracks “My Friends Over You,” “Head On Collision,” and “Hit or Miss.”
