The four-brother rock ‘n roll show follows this news with a fall headlining tour, visiting 25 markets through early November.

Remedy Drive frontman David Zach adds, “We feel really honored and humbled that every day a few more people around the country are finding out about this band from Nebraska that’s been making music independently for the last five years. We are excited to take a new album out on the road.”
