Recently rumors have been circulating of a return of pop punk band, Man Overboard. Today, the rumors were revealed to be true with the announcement from the band of three special 10 year anniversary shows on the East Coast in November and December. The special mini tour will feature support from Seahaven on the following dates:
- 11/30: New York, NY @ Gramercy Theatre
- 12/01: Philadelphia, PA @ Theater Of Living Arts
- 12/02: Cambridge, MA @ The Sinclair
Tickets will go on sale Friday 08/03 at 10am: www.manoverboardnj.com.
Man Overboard shared the following statement and video with their announcement this morning:
“When we started this band 10 years ago we never thought it would take us the places it did. We traveled the world and created a wealth of memories. We experienced great triumphs and our fair share of setbacks. It’s a journey that shaped who we all are as people today and something we are eternally grateful for… come celebrate 10 years with us.”
No further details are available at the moment as to what the band has planned following these shows and if this is just a one time thing. The quintet have been on hiatus since Spring 2016 as the band had announced earlier that year with the following statement:
“We have spent the last 7+ years tirelessly building Man Overboard into something that we all love and are proud of, from booking our first tours and hand numbered copies of the Hung Up On Nothing EP to touring the world and making albums with producers we never thought we’d meet. We put our hearts and souls into this band because it’s something we believe in. Whether we were being detained in a desolate Russian train station after illegally trying cross the border to the Ukraine or walking off stage after a sold out show, our friendship and love for everything this band has afforded us is what makes us want to be a part of Man Overboard forever.
This band has been and will always be something that we hold close to our hearts, not only because it has transformed and shaped us as people but because of how we know how it has affected other people’s lives, be it in a large or small way. Joe Strummer said “Without people you’re nothing” and we know that the support of our friends, families and fans helped guide us to where we are today.
Our current plans are very few and will likely remain that way for a while. Don’t read into it. Don’t think it’s something it’s not. This Spring we will be playing eight shows in the United States. Farewell for now.”
