A Day To Remember will support all U.S. spring 2012 dates, with the exception of the New Orleans show. The Menzingers will open the first leg of shows. Glassjaw joins the bill for the Uniondale gig. 

Rise Against is currently in the middle of a United Kingdom tour, which wraps up Sunday in Southampton, followed by a Nov. 15 gig in Rome. The band closes out the year with a few U.S. dates and holiday radio shows.

After wrapping up the first leg of the U.S. 2012 tour Rise Against will return to Europe for a run of gigs booked Feb. 28 through March 20.

A fan club presale for the new U.S. dates takes place Tuesday at riseagainst.artistarena.com. Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday.
