The Offspring hit the road

Alkaline Trio, Shiny Toy Guns, Street Dogs supporting

NEW YORK -- The Offspring return to the road after a four-year North American hiatus with a new tour, the group announced Tuesday. The band kick of the trek, dubbed the "S*** Is F***ed Up" tour, on May 15 in Nashville and wind up July 18 in Pomano Beach, Fla.

Alkaline Trio and Street Dogs support the first leg of the tour (May 19 - June 9); Shiny Toy Guns and Street Dogs will open the second (Jun 10-17); Dropkick Murphys the third (June 19 - 30); and Sum 41 will warm up for the last two weeks (July 10-18). Pennywise is playing one date on the tour, July 2 in Toronto.

The tour marks the band's first national tour since the June 2008 release of their eighth studio album, the Bob Rock-produced "Rise And Fall, Rage And Grace." The album's second single, "You're Gonna Go Far, Kid," spent 11 weeks atop the Billboard Modern Rock chart at the end of last year.
