Apparently the tour is called the We Fear the Maine-Day Parade Tour according to Maydays TM.
Assuming We Are The In Crowd and Paradise Fears are support?
Lol so confused

Haha interesting. That would be my best guess. Regardless of who the support is, I'm so stoked on this tour.

I've never actually listened to Paradise Fears. How are they? Any suggestions on songs to check out?

They're good, not great. Their fans kinda suck though. Check out Sanctuary.

So if I'm reading this right the tour is:
Mayday Parade
The Maine
We Are The In Crowd
Paradise Fears

I kinda liked the other rumors more, but I'm still hoping this swings by me.

Solid except for Paradise Fears. I know a lot of people like them, but I just can't with a band that buys their way onto tours.

I didn't know that's how they got their way onto tours. I only the last couple songs of their set when they were on the The Cab/Summer Set tour, so I don't really have much of an opinion.

Yep. At least that's how they got their way onto the All Time Low tour last fall. Pretty sure its the same for all of them though, because they do not have a big enough fanbase to just be offered these tours.

Buy-on tours are widespread. It's not a new phenomenon.

Not always, but it happens a lot with openers. The band pays a set amount to be a part of the tour, and for them it's kind of like an investment, trying to make back what they paid to get on it, plus cover travel costs, with merch sales. I wasn't aware of this until we played a show with Before You Exit. Talked to them for a while about a tour they were looking at buying onto.

It gets worse. Some bands have been announced on a tour, and then other bands have paid to take their place.

I can't remember exactly but didn't that either happen to Valencia or to an opening band on a Valencia headliner?
