The All-American Rejects are back in action for their first headline tour in nearly a decade.

The Wet Hot All-American Summer Tour produced by Live Nation kicks off on Aug. 11 in Tampa, Florida, and winds its way across the country before wrapping up on Oct. 14

“We’ve been trying to get out on the road in a proper way for the last few years. We finally realized after playing When We Were Young [in Las Vegas] that the world was ready to pull out of their ‘guilty pleasure chest’ and celebrate the soundtrack of their youth,” the band said in a statement. “When New Found Glory, The Starting Line, Motion City Soundtrack, and The Get Up Kids signed on, the feeling was ‘This is a celebration of summers gone by.’ It’s time to embrace the cumulative joy of growing up. First, we got you to ‘Swing Swing,’ then we became your ‘Dirty Little Secret,’ and you thought ‘It Would End Tonight’ so we could ‘Move Along,’ then we ‘Gave You Hell’ for denying the fact that we’re the band you listened to your entire lives, whether you liked it or not.”
