The Stimulus Package Tour with Gliss and The Takeover UK

Not to be a major bummer or anything, but sometimes you just gotta face the facts. Times are rough, everyone is trying to cut their spending, and although no one likes to admit it, sometimes this means sacrificing some fun times to pad your wallet.

Thank goodness Ryko is here to help, right? Literally bringing you two bands for the price of one, Ryko's Stimulus Package Tour is sweeping the nation west to east. Gliss and The Takeover UK have joined forces to keep ticket prices low (avg price of $5), give you excellent bundled deals on merch, and of course serve you up with some solid rock n roll to help erase your economic woes.

Did we mention that The Takeover UK's debut full-length, Running with the Wasters came out this week? Devotion Implosion, the sophomore album from Gliss is out on April 7th. Just two more reasons to check out the Stimulus Package tour dates below and pick up your discounted copies of both albums at a show!
