Gym Class Heroes have announced a string of tour dates spanning the U.S., with shows scheduled for August and October. The August dates begin on the 24th in Honolulu, HI, then round out the month with a show in Los Angeles on the 25th and Brooklyn on the 26th. The second leg of the tour begins on October 18 in Chicago, and will hit up major cities on the East Coast, including Baltimore and Boston. The tour wraps up on October 30 in Philadelphia. The band is currently in the midst of a festival tour in Asia.
Gym Class Heroes gained popularity in 2003 after being signed to Pete Wentz's (of Fall Out Boy fame) record label, Decaydance Records, and record label Fueled by Ramen. During that time they released their debut album, The Papercut Chronicles, which features hits such as "Paper Cuts" and "Cupid's Chokehold" – a song which reached No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. While Gym Class Heroes have made a name for themselves through touring such festivals as Warped Tour and Bamboozle, I think most of us can agree that frontman Travie McCoy didn't become a household name until he started dating Katy Perry (and became arguably more famous after they broke up) in 2008. The band went on hiatus in 2009, but in 2011 released The Papercut Chronicles II. The latest single from the album is called "The Fighter," was released on May 24, and features Ryan Tedder from OneRepublic.
