Motion City Soundtrack released a cryptic clip on Instagram (June 7th) of the band performing live with their song "Together We'll Ring in the New Year" playing in the back, with the end of the video pointing to a date 12/31/19. This video led many to believe that the band was planning a comeback since their indefinite hiatus in 2016.
Though the band disbanded, lead singer/guitarist Justin Pierre has went on to do his own solo project as well as dip his toes in the water of producing alongside keyboardist Jesse Johnson with the band THE ROCKET.
To many's surprise, the band not only announced a reunion show on 12/31/19 but a full fledged tour right after dubbed the "DON'T CALL IT A COMEBACK TOUR" which will start in 2020. This still leaves many to wonder if this tour is just a one-off thing or will the band be back in full-fledged synth force with new music and more touring. Only time will tell, but until then, tickets for these shows go on sale Friday (6/21) at 10 AM with pre-sales beforehand.
