The Walk Continues
The Use Your Sole Tour started a week ago, and with this tour we are pushing to spread the message of another walk around the world. In May we completed the incredible goal of completing the first walk around the world (more than 24,902 miles), and on this tour the Take The Walk campaign is continuing. With your help we can do it again! On this tour, many of the walks are being hosted on college campuses in partnership with our friends at TOMS shoes. We are also excited to have our tour mates in Hello Goodbye, Steel Train and Sherwood on the walking trail as well. Zac -“ We don’t set goals for ourselves so that we can stop once we complete them, but rather we set goals to help us understand how far we’ve come, and how much further we still have to go.”

From The Band
Well the Use Your Sole Tour has begun. Thanks to everyone who cast their vote for the songs they wanted us to play in the song voting contest. We just posted the next list of 5 shows to vote on, and this list of songs are all old school HANSON tunes instead of covers so check out the link below. This tour already feels a little different than others we have done in the last few years. One difference is the bands we are on the road with (Hello Goodbye, Steel Train, Sherwood), maybe it’s also the fact that we are beginning a second lap around the world with the Take The Walk Campaign (thank you to everyone who has already been a part of the walks this tour). One thing that makes the tour different for sure is getting to premier some brand new songs each night, and the undeniable feeling of anticipation that’s in the air for what is ahead. The next album is planned to come out in earl y 2010 and that is rapidly approaching. The first five shows have gone great, and now we are off to Cleveland for our next stop. We can’t wait to see everyone out on the road, don’t forget to vote on the set list.
