With the May 18th release date for More Songs (Big Scary Monsters) growing closer, Grown Ups(Chicago, IL / Furnessville, IN) has announced a month-long tour of The UK and Europe in support of its upcoming debut full-length. The four piece begins its overseas adventures on May 14th and will be joined on all shows by Into It. Over It..
First though, Grown Ups will embark on a short ten-day tour of the East Coast starting this Wednesday. The band will share the stage with the likes of 1994!, Pianos Become The Teeth, Snowing and Algernon Cadwallader.
