Frey has seen his share of highs and lows since the band’s last album, the critically-acclaimed Something Different. He’s felt the high of getting married and experienced the low of loss after the band’s bus broke down, resulting in a catastrophic trailer fire that destroyed the majority of the group’s gear. Whether on a mountaintop or in a valley, Frey and his bandmates have learned to “smile,” even through the pain—a sentiment they share on their new song the lead singer wrote alongside band co-founder and manager Ben McDonald and songwriters Hannah Ellis and Josh Bronleewe.
Sidewalk Prophets will preview “Smile” and other new music on the These Simple Truths Tour this fall. On this special acoustic run, the band is celebrating ten years and a million miles traveled since the release of their debut album featuring their first radio single, the Gold-certified “The Words I Would Say.” The tour kicked off last night in Auburn, N.Y. and will conclude November 10 in Moore, Okla., showcasing intimate stripped-down sets in cities across the country. Full tour routing is below.
As previously announced, the band will also reprise its Great Big Family Christmas Tour for a second consecutive year this December. Moreover, later this year they’ll drop Merry Christmas To You: Great Big Family Edition, a deluxe version of their original holiday LP that released in 2013.
