Dashboard Confessional are officially taking their reunion on the road with the announcement of their 2017 U.S. tour. The band will begin the trek on Jan. 17 in Buffalo, NY, before heading to Boston, Philadelphia, Austin and New Orleans. The tour then comes full circle in Charlotte, NC, on Feb. 17.

The announcement follows the band's return to music with "May" in the spring, marking their first song release since 2009's Alter the Ending album. Frontman Chris Carrabba told EW the guys were back in the studio working on their seventh project:

"I don’t have any idea of a release date or a worry about one for that matter but I’m really excited to be doing it because I don’t think it’s ever felt this much like the beginning again...No one’s paying attention. No one’s looking over my shoulder to see how the songs are going or when the record’s coming out. There are no notes from anybody. I’m just quietly toiling away like I did on my first album [2000’s The Swiss Army Romance].”

Check out all of DC's tour dates below, and let's hope the good news comes with an album release date soon!
