Knapsack have announced dates, cities and venues for their upcoming fall shows, their first since disbanding in early 1999. The dates mark the 15th anniversary of their final US tour (with openers At The Drive-In) and will include a first-ever Florida appearance at The Fest.
“We are grateful for the opportunity to reconnect both as musicians and friends,” says Colby Mancasola of the band he started with high school friend, Blair Shehan.
Knapsack released three influential albums and toured throughout the 90s. For 2013, the final lineup that recorded This Conversation Is Ending Starting Right Now (“A minor classic of twenty something despair.” – SPIN) – Shehan (The Jealous Sound), Mancasola, and Sergie Loobkoff (Samiam) – will be joined by former Thrice bassist, Ed Breckenridge. The band has no current plans to record new material or continue touring beyond 2013.
