Hanson fans can rest assured that this is no April Fool’s joke. The band today announced the release of a new album, Anthem, slated to drop on June 18th, and a North and South American World Tour which will launch on July 18th in Buenos Aires, Argentina, ending November 20th in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Additionally, pre-sale for their first single from the new album, “Get The Girl Back,” begins today on iTunes. The single will be officially released on April 9th. The music video for the song, featuring Kat Dennings (Two Broke Girls) and Nikki Reed (Twilight/Thirteen) is set to premiere online on VH1.com on April 4th and on-air on the VH1 Top 20 Countdown on April 6th. The guys are also set to perform the song on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on the single release date, April 9th.
While the tour doesn’t currently have any Florida dates scheduled, here’s some GREAT news for local Hanson fans. MIX 105.1 is working on having Hanson stop by Orlando for something ‘very special’ sometime this month – more info coming soon.
