In addition to a previous confirmed Axe The Cables acoustic show at New York’s Gramercy Theater, STS9 will perform in Manhattan, Boston and Philadelphia with Lotus, The Album Leaf and other guests. The band will play a mix of shows in Chicago, including another Axe The Cables Show and a multi-band bill with Bassnectar and Big Gigantic at the Charter One Pavilion on August 21. Finally, in Georgia STS9 will co-headline Alpheretta’s Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre with the Disco Biscuits on August 28. STS9 will also play Atlanta’s Tabernacle on August 27, while the Biscuits will headline the room on August 29.

STS9 opened for Jay-Z at Denver’s Pepsi Center last night. The band shares the following info on the show:

We wanted to send a huge shout out to everyone that made last nights STS9 show at Denver’s Pepsi Center one of the most memorable night of our careers. First, foremost and forever the fans. Y’all had that place lifting off the ground! To create our art in an arena in front of 13,000 peeps was about as inspiring it gets. And BIG thanks to the Jay-Z and his entire team who embraced us, loved the show, and were in awe of what we’ve built here as a family, together, over the past dozen years. We turned some heads last night all, and without you all to share it with it wouldn’t mean a thing. Cheers and thank you for an incredible tour. Is it summer yet!? Peace.
