Last year, California math rock band Chon unveiled their sophomore studio album Homey. The record became a big hit, giving the band the number one spot on the Heatseekers Albums chart, the number four spot on the Independent Albums chart, and the number seven spot on the Alternative Albums chart. After over a year of touring in support of the album, the band is looking to do something different. Certain fans on both sides of the country will be in for a treat this December.
For their holiday shows, Chon will perform the album in its entirety with a string quartet. This trek, which was revealed yesterday, starts on Dec. 5 inside The Sinclair in Boston on Dec. 5, and it will feature a performance inside Asbury Lanes in Asbury Park on Dec. 8. Opening acts will be revealed in the near future.
VIP packages are on sale right now for those looking to drop a bit more cash. Each package includes an exclusive purple/yellow vinyl variant of Homey, a signed setlist and poster, a tote bag, gift wrap paper, and early entry. Tickets will go on sale to the general public this Friday at 10 a.m. PST. The entire tour routing can be seen below.
Before this tour, the band will be playing the role of direct support for Coheed and Cambria's U.K. tour next month.
