– Hot Rize will tour for the first time in almost 25 years in support of the bluegrass band's new studio album this fall.
The tour will start in Colorado in late Sept. ember, include stops at IBMA's Wide Open Bluegrass Festival, Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival in San Francisco, and hit the Midwest and east coast along the way with stops in New York, Philadelphia and Washington, D.C.
"We've had fun over the years playing some of our favorite festivals as we've all continued our solo careers, but the last few years we've started feeling the tug to make new Hot Rize music. With the new album, we decided it was time to hit the road and try to reach some new heights, said Pete Wernick. "Even with the time away and all of our other ventures, we're still like family, and adding Bryan Sutton on guitar brought a new energy to the band. We are very excited to share the new songs with fans."
