just announced a new spring tour in classic fashion these days: by posting a video to the band’s homepage.

It’s exciting timing-wise, especially considering that Trey’s tour will be wrapping up in the night that Mike’s tour begins in Oregon. I’m sure that once the solo tours start rolling along we’ll hear officially on the summer dates that is planning, but until that time we can wonder if Mike will indeed do an extended “Mound” on the tour and see if he has any new surprises in store song-wise. The tour makes stops in Tahoe, Santa Cruz, San Diego, , Atlanta, Denver, and more….
