After taking the month of July off, The Heavy Pets announced yesterday they’ll be back on the road this August and September. The boys begin their tour on August 1, hitting up several cities in Colorado and making their way through their home state of Florida. The second leg of the tour is heavy with New England dates – including a few festies – and wraps up in Ohio on September 22.

Since the jam band’s inception in 2005, they’ve garnered popularity through extensive touring and performing on the festival circuit. Throughout the band’s seven-year run they’ve experienced several line-up changes, and fans should be on the lookout for a new face this time around. Bassist Justin Carney has left and been replaced by longtime friend Tony D’Amato. Bands Timbre Coup, Long Miles and Greenhouse Lounge will act as support for varying dates.
