The trek begins Sept. 13 in Worcester, Mass., and will run through an Oct. 28 finale in an as-yet-undetermined city. Other acts include Common Rider (featuring Operation Ivy's Jesse Michaels), Anti-Flag, Bouncing Souls, Poison The Well, and Lawrence Arms.
Plea For Peace/Take Action is sponsored by the Sub City and Asian Man labels and the National Hopeline Network (1-800-SUICIDE). 10% of gross door receipts from the tour will be donated to the Hopeline, which "provides free national access to crisis counseling through a computer network that routes calls automatically to the closest participating suicide prevention center," according to organizers.
Last year's inaugural Plea For Peace/Take Action tour featured Alkaline Trio, Hot Water Music, Cave In, Thrice, Zero Zero, and Strike Anywhere, among others. A Sub City compilation CD featuring rare tracks from those artists went on to sell 60,000 copies, according to the label.
A new compilation, due Aug. 20 from Sub City, will sport songs from Anti-Flag, Common Rider, Snapcase, Cave In, and Piebald, among others. The disc will be enhanced with suicide prevention and depression screening content.
