The club tour runs through the Midwest and south, with dates in Ohio, Wisconsin, Georgia and Florida, ending Dec. 1 at The Machine Shop in Flint, Mich.

Other dates include Aug. 25 with Ted Nugent at

The 18-track compilation, titled 25, drops July 28 with some of the band’s radio hits such as “Down On Me,” “The Lumberjack,” “Push Comes To Shove” and includes two previously unreleased tracks.

“At the time we first hit the scene, we were told by quite a few interviewers and fans that we sounded like a cross between Black Oak Arkansas and AC/DC,” the band said in the announcement. 

“While we was [sic] very familiar with AC/DC, we were not with BOA. We went back and listened, and were blown away – so much so that we recorded a cover of one of their most kick ass tunes, ‘Hot and Nasty,’ which is now finally getting its release on this comp.

“Beware, we are not slowing down anytime soon.”
