This makes absolutely no sense. Support tours are how you grow. A headline tour for them would kill the momentum that the support tours are giving them.
They're opening on these tours and they're playing to less than a quarter of the venue. A headlining run will give them an idea on how big their fanbase is and a chance to play more songs to them. They've been doing the same 5-6 song setlist since I saw them at Skate and Surf last year. Collapse has 12 or 13 songs on it yet they only play Countdown, Hostage, We're All in Danger, Paper Thin and Waking Up (Throw in Light Escapes if they have more time). I'm not talking a full country headlining tour but if they just do the east coast and midwest, it would be tremendous for them financially and will increase popularity. Talking to them on Warped, they were telling me that most of their crowd has been singing along. If Rise was smart, have Dangerkids be main support on their annual Rise Records tour.
