"For years we played in small clubs and that's where you can really connect with your fans," group member Tom DeLonge says in a statement. "We're super stoked that we're at the point in our career that we can bring a tour like this around for only a dollar."
The trek comes in advance of Blink's fifth studio album, a self-titled affair due Nov. 18 via Geffen. It's the follow-up to 2001's "Take off Your Pants and Jacket," which debuted at No. 1 on The Billboard 200. "Having over nine months to record this CD gave us a chance to explore avenues that we never have before," says group member Mark Hoppus. "We weren't rushed, so the ideas on this record are fully fleshed out and go in directions that sometimes even surprised us."
First single "Feeling This" rocketed 40-13 this week on Billboard's Modern Rock Tracks chart.
