The band is out on a North American co-headlining run with fellow punk vets Lagwagon that kicked off at the end of August.

Upcoming stops include Phoenix Concert Theatre in Toronto (September 5), Imperial Du Quebec in Quebec City and The Marquee Club in Halifax, Nova Scotia (September 10).

After a quick break for a trio of MxPx solo shows, the bands will hook up again for another three weeks, with stops scheduled in Philadelphia, New York City, Detroit, Chicago, Denver, Las Vegas, San Diego and more.

Although MxPx is still touring strong in support of its eighth studio release, 2007’s Secret Weapon, the band is planning to release an album of covers late this year or early next.

To celebrate the release of the third single from the Dove Awards-nominated Secret Weapon, “Contention,” the track is available as a free download (courtesy of Tooth & Nail Records) exclusively on until September 18.
