DAYS OF THE NEW frontman Travis Meeks has lined up the following solo tour dates:
Jun. 29 - Mokena, IL @ Pearl Room
Jul. 02 - El Paso, TX @ KLAQ Radio Show
Jul. 14 - Flint, MI @ The Machine Shop
Jul. 15 - Grand Rapids, MI @ The Rocker
Jul. 19 - Oshkosh, WI @ The Algoma Club
Jul. 20 - Madison, WI @ Dane County Fairgrounds
Aug. 07 - Pt. Pleasant Beach, NJ @ Jenkinsons
Aug. 10 - Farmingdale, NY @ The Crazy Donkey
Aug. 11 - Allentown, PA @ The Sterling Rock Room

Aug. 13 - Boston, MA @ LocoBazooka
Immediately following these shows, Travis plans on returning to the studio to finish work on the "Purple" album (the follow up to 2001's "Red" album).
After his much-talked-about appearance on A&E's "Intervention" television show, Travis has written about half a dozen newer songs for the project. A late summer release is being eyed right now. It is said to go back to the roots of the first album, but also blending the ethnic and classical sounds of the last two records.
Travis is said to be "currently in great spirits" and has reportedly been sober for over nine months. He has been very patient and choosy about his career, and is looking for a record label to finish out his vision (since the DAYS OF THE NEW records are differentiated by color rather than by name).
