In addition to some weekend-based two-night stands, "The Planet Anthem Tour" will see The Disco Biscuits travel to some fan-favorite venues and locales. Tickets for the fall shows will go on sale through BiscoTix on Monday, August 2 at noon ET, with Ticketmaster on sale dates to be announced.

As The Disco Biscuits hit the road this fall, the band will begin to roll out a series of EPs leading up to the new, full album, Planet Anthem - scheduled for release in January 2010. The highly anticipated roll out of new tracks has already begun, with the introduction of "Konkrete" and "You and I," at recent performances. The Biscuits are set to shake up the industry with a plan to release the album throughout the fall, in clusters, on 3 EPs.
These pristine, studio quality, multi-media releases will include singles, remixes, and music videos. The first, due out in September, will be available on the band's website, on tour, online, and as a limited edition retail package. The subsequent EPs will be released throughout the fall in six week increments as Planet Anthem will, slowly but surely, be unveiled. As a show of appreciation for the band's fans, The Disco Biscuits are now offering free downloads of both "Konkrete" and "You and I" on the band's website, www.DiscoBiscuits.com.
The Disco Biscuits will kick off the band's massive Fall Tour with two nights at the Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, NJ, September 12-13. Starland weekends have long been a fan favorite, and these performances will be the band's first since returning to the States from Japan, a trip made for their performance at Fuji Rock Festival, on the heels of the most successful Camp Bisco to date.
From there, the band will head south to begin fall's busy life on the road. September 17 will mark the band's return to Fayetteville, AR for a performance at George's Majestic leading into a weekend in Texas. The Disco Biscuits will visit Dallas' Palladium Ballroom on September 18 before visiting Austin's Stubb's BBQ on Saturday, September 19.
The Biscuits will then head to the Southeast for a series of performances in some favorite destinations, returning to Tuscaloosa's Jupiter on September 22 before heading to Oxford, MS on September 23 and Nashville, TN on September 24. The band will round out the week with two exciting performances supported by Infected Mushroom (performing as a live band) at Atlanta's Tabernacle on Friday, September 25 and again at Knoxville's Tennessee Theater on Saturday, September 26. Before heading north, the band will perform in Boone, NC on September 30 and in Richmond, VA on October 1.
The Midwest run kicks off with an October 28 performance at the Kalamazoo State Theatre, the band's first visit to the Michigan city. From there, The Disco Biscuits head to Madison, WI on October 29 and to Minneapolis, MN on October 30 before Halloween's blow out at Chicago's Auditorium Theatre with guests Holy Fuck, The Glitch Mob, and local favorites Orchard Lounge. The band will wrap up its Midwest engagements in Urbana, IL on November 1 at The Canopy Club.
The Disco Biscuits are also pleased to confirm a California run anchored by two performances at San Francisco's Fillmore on Friday and Saturday, November 20-21. The two shows will be bookended by scheduled performances in San Diego, Los Angeles, and Santa Cruz. The band is excited to return to California for these shows following previous unavoidable cancelations. The Disco Biscuits will perform in San Diego at Wave House San Diego on November 18, in Los Angeles at the House of Blues on November 19, and in Santa Cruz at The Catalyst on November 22.
