Onboard the eighth annual winter outing are Sparta, Glassjaw, Hot Water Music, and Dredg. Dates and venues have just been announced and find the four bands joining company February 14 through the end of March.

According to Hot Water Music’s Web site, “SnoCore is not coming to the Southeast at all.” And indeed, states in the Southeastern corner have been left off the itinerary, which ventures as far north as Canada.

Previous outings have seen SnoCore spinoffs like the Icicle Ball – a sister tour that featured bands of a different genre – but there’s no word if that’ll be taking place this year or not.

Tickets for the outing range from an ├╝ber low $13 on up to the $20 mark and are available through Ticketmaster.
