Pop punk act Mest is following up their earlier one-off reunion gig with a full tour in the fall. They'll play alongside Quietdrive, Rookie of the Year, and Automatic Loveletter on the entire trek. Earlier in the summer Mest discussed their lineup for the tour, so if you're curious try and parse this impenetrable text blob from their MySpace page.

Mest was founded in Blue Island, Illinois in 1995 and broke up in 2006 after releasing "Photographs" a year prior. The band's frontman Tony Lovato made headlines in 2007 when he stabbed another man and was arrested for murder. The charges were later dropped as the stabbing was deemed self-defense. He now fronts the band Kisses for Kings.

Tour dates are as follows:

10/14 - The Glass House - Pomona, California 10/15 - The Boardwalk - Orangeville, California 10/16 - The Red Devil Lounge - San Francisco, California 10/20 - El Corazon - Seattle, Washington 10/22 - The Bluebird Theatre - Denver, Colorado 10/24 - Granada Theatre - Lawrence, Kansas 10/25 - Fubar - St. Louis, Missouri 10/28 - The Eagle Theater - Pontiac, Michigan 10/29 - House of Blues - Chicago, Illinois 10/30 - Peadbody's - Cleveland, Ohio 10/31 - Club Infinity - Williamsville, New York 11/01 - The Chance Theater - Poughkeepsie, New York 11/02 - Irving Plaza - New York, New York 11/03 - Webster Theatre - Hartford, Connecticut 11/04 - Stone Pony - Asbury Park, New Jersey 11/05 - Recher Theatre - Towson, Maryland 11/06 - State Theatre - Falls Church, Virginia 11/07 - Crocodile Rock - Allentown, Pennsylvania 11/08 - Chameleon Club - Lancaster, Pennsylvania 11/09 - North Star - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 11/10 - Strummer's - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 11/13 - Scout Bar - Houston, Texas 11/14 - The Door - Dallas, Texas 11/15 - Jack's Patio Bar - San Antonio, Texas 11/18 - Karma - Victorville, California 11/19 - Cane's Bar & Grill - San Diego, California 11/20 - El Ray Theatre - Los Angeles, California

    "11/20 - El Ray Theatre - Los Angeles, California" It's actually called the "El Rey Theatre" but yes, it's a beautiful venue

    I remember Steven Lynch did a DVD there - I'll agree, it's a nice place. ^That's why it's taken so long to get things going - the judge ruled it as self-defence, and let him go free. TBH, something like that will take a long while to get over, hence the break.
