Considering a snow storm did just dump a ginormous amount of wintery stuff on most of the east coast, it’s hard to fathom summer. But then you get things like The Fray‘s newly announced summer tour, and realize the fun in the sun ain’t all too far away.

In support of their recently released self-titled sophomore studio album, the Denver based outfit has announced plans for an extensive North American tour. Following stops in Australia and the U.K., The Fray will take to the states beginning in mid-June for a two-month endeavor with fellow Top-40 rockers Jack’s Mannequin.

Pre-sale tickets will go on sale beginning Friday, March 6th. Fans who are currently on the email list as well as those who sign up to the email list before March 5th will be emailed a unique code at 5:00pm ET on Thursday, March 5th which will allow them to buy tickets before they are available to the general public.

And while your waiting for said tickets to go on sale, why not kill the time by checking out this recently unveiled cover of Kanye West’s “Heartless”. Let me repeat. The Fray has covered Kanye West. Uh huh.
