In support of their brand new release, Empty Days & Sleepless Nights, Defeater is gearing up to hit the road with La Dispute (with Native and Former Thieves also in tow) starting Thursday! The band will tour across the Midwest, South, East Coast and Canada from May 5th through May 28th. Guitarist Jay Maas commented, “We really feel like the songs on ED&SN are some of our best yet and love playing them live.”

Empty Days & Sleepless Nights was officially released last March and debuted at #169 on the Billboard Top 200 charts. The album has been seeing enormously positive reactions from fans and press alike, with Rock Sound calling it "...another meticulously formed and thought-out hardcore concept record in which they somehow up the ante from the stunning debut 'Travels' and EP 'Lost Ground'. ED&SN is available now in stores and online from Bridge Nine.
