Knapsack Reunite for Anniversary Tour

Knapsack Reunite for Anniversary Tour
California emo band Knapsack have announced that they're getting back together for a reunion tour, marking the first time the band have played since 1999.

The news comes via a press release, which notes that the group's final lineup of vocalist/guitarist Blair Shehan, drummer Colby Mancasola and guitarist Sergie Loobkoff will hit stages with newly added bass player Ed Breckenridge of Thrice to celebrate the 15th anniversary of Knapsack's final LP, This Conversation Is Ending Starting Right Now. A full schedule has yet to be revealed, but the band will play Florida's the Fest, which runs October 31 to November 3.

"We are grateful for the opportunity to reconnect both as musicians and friends," Mancasola said in a statement.

Founded by high school friends Mansacola and Shehan in 1993, Knapsack issued three LPs and a handful of singles before calling it quits. Following the dissolution of Knapsack, Shehan formed the Jealous Sound, who themselves came out of hibernation last year to release A Gentle Reminder.

It should be noted, however, that Knapsack have stated that they have no plans to record any new material or tour beyond 2013.
