The release of Penny Black not only marks a return to form for a group that has been so beloved over the years, but also yields the opportunity to conclude one chapter and open the next. “I think I speak for the band as a whole: It’s closure on a long, convoluted history,” said the band’s formative singer Chris Carrabba. “It’s great to finally get a chance to follow up what we did with the five of us together.”

Stay tuned for additional live dates to be announced in the coming weeks.
