Announce Slam Dunk UK Festival Appearance
Plus Dates With Hit The Lights and Transit

(March 23, 2012) – Walnut Creek, California’s The Story So Far is proud to announce they’ll be part of the Slam Dunk Tour in the UK starting May 23rd in Newcastle and ending June 2nd in Kingston. Included in the dates are the band’s appearances at the three Slam Dunk Festival dates May 26th in Leeds, May 27th in London, and May 29th in Glasgow. The club dates will feature headlining act Hit The Lights with Transit and Decade also serving as support.

The Story So Far is touring in support of their debut full-length, Under Soil and Dirt, which was released in June, 2011 on Pure Noise Records.

In its review of the album, Rock Sound raved, calling the tracks, “Taut, delicious and confessional pop-punkers. TSSF have ironed out the creases through countless shows and pushed to the front of the queue at first attempt with a batch of songs that connect in a heartbeat. They may remain new to many, but won’t remain a secret for much longer.”

This tour marks the second time the emerging pop-punk five-piece has been across the pond this year. The band shot their recent video for “Roam” with director Paul Hope in late January / early February on their two week UK tour supporting Man Overboard. Fans can check out the video here:
