In advance of the release of its sophomore Island album, rock act Hoobastank will headline a club and theater tour kicking off Aug. 20 in San Antonio. The run is scheduled through the end of September, with labelmates Die Trying and Letter Kills on board to open most of the shows.

The band's as-yet-untitled second album will be released in November. The set was recorded in Los Angeles with producer Howard Benson (P.O.D., Cold). In late July, the group returned to the studio to record some last-minute ideas.

"We [had] already started mixing the record and coming up with artwork ideas," drummer Chris Hesse wrote on the band's official Web site. "So now we're back in the studio throwing down these ideas to tape."

Released in November 2001, Hoobastank's self-titled debut reached No. 25 on The Billboard 200. The set spawned the hits "Running Away," which reached No. 2 on Billboard's Modern Rock Tracks airplay chart and No. 9 on the Mainstream Rock Tracks tally, and "Crawling in the Dark," which hit No. 7 on both charts. A third single, "Remember Me" made it to No. 23 on the Modern side and No. 28 Mainstream.
