Posted: 03/10/2011 | Views: 3,605

MAKE DO AND MEND are excited to announce their first extensive tour in support of the band’s critically lauded debut, End Measured Mile (October, Panic/Paper + Plastick), which begins tonight in New Haven, CT. Following a brief US run that wraps with the band’s debut at SXSW, Make Do And Mend head overseas to the UK with Fireworks on March 20th, and return to the US for a month’s worth of tour dates with The Wonder Years, Fireworks, Such Gold, and Living With Lions, kicking off on April 8th. Make Do And Mend will also be performing at highly touted punk festivals Krazyfest and Rainfest (at the Panic Records Showcase), as well as select dates with Hot Water Music in May. See all tour dates below.

“These upcoming tours will be the first real shows we are going to be able to stretch our legs out on songs from our full length,” says Make Do And Mend drummer Matt Carroll. “We are all really, really excited to start playing a lot of new songs. We feel like these tours are going to be our coming out party for End Measured Mile, and are stoked to see how kids react to the songs live. SXSW will be a great jump-off point for our endlessly busy schedule continuing on, so we are looking forward causing ruckus in Austin for a few days.” This run will not only include the band’s first time performing at SXSW, but it will also be Make Do And Mend’s first appearance overseas in the UK. Carroll adds “To be able to go down to SXSW, and fly from there to go overseas for two weeks is a pretty surreal feeling.”

Named one of Alternative Press’ 100 Bands You Need To Know in 2011, Make Do And Mend earned respect and praise from fans and critics through extensive touring and solid EP releases over the past three years, culminating with End Measured Mile topping many critics Best Of 2010 lists. “We can't thank everyone who has had positive things to say about the record enough,” says Carroll. “To have people compliment something we worked insanely hard on is a really great feeling, and we cannot wait to hit the road and play these songs live and continue to share the songs with new people.”
