The reconstituted Sick Puppies have just announced two new legs of fall tour dates, with the band headlining its own shows in September, then joining Skillet for the “Unleashed” tour in October. Following a handful of festival dates this month and in August, the trio will kick off its fall schedule on September 17th in Chester, Pennsylvania. They’ll meet up with Skillet on October 6th in Fort Wayne, Indiana, with those shows running through October 23rd in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

The band is touring behind its fifth album, Fury, which came out in May and marks the debut of new guitarist/singer Bryan Scott. He told us that he feels like he and the group have gelled on and offstage: [“This band made it so easy, ’cause they’re just the nicest people in the world and so our chemistry gelled right off the bat, which just made the whole process just, you know, awesome. We’ve literally just become family throughout this whole process, so that makes the rocking out onstage a lot easier. You just feed off the energy of the crowd and, you know, just try to do the best we can.”] SOUNDCUE (:18 OC: . . . best we can.)

  • The first single from Fury, called “Stick To Your Guns,” is Number 13 on the rock radio chart.
