The All-American Rejects have announced details of their first headline tour in almost 10 years.

The band’s upcoming, excellently-titled Wet Hot All-American Summer Tour will feature support from New Found Glory, Motion City Soundtrack, The Starting Line and The Get Up Kids, with tickets going on sale this Friday, April 7, at 10am local time.

“We’ve been trying to get out on the road in a proper way for the last few years,” say AAR. “We finally realised after playing When We Were Young that the world was ready to pull out of their ‘guilty pleasure chest’ and celebrate the soundtrack of their youth.

“When New Found Glory, The Starting Line, Motion City Soundtrack and The Get Up Kids signed on, the feeling was, ‘This is a celebration of summers gone by.’ It’s time to embrace the cumulative joy of growing up. First we got you to Swing Swing, then we became your Dirty Little Secret, and you thought It Would End Tonight so we could Move Along, then we Gave You Hell for denying the fact that we’re the band you listened to your entire lives, whether you liked it or not.”
