Plain White T's Announce North American Headlining Tour Beginning January 27 in Milwaukee NEW ALBUM 'WONDERS OF THE YOUNGER' HITS STORES TODAY

BURBANK, Calif., Dec. 7, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- As they celebrate today's release of the highly anticipated new album Wonders of the Younger (Hollywood Records), which hit #1 on the iTunes Rock Album chart, Plain White T's have announced dates for a North American headlining tour set to kick off January 27th at the Turner Hall Ballroom in Milwaukee, WI. The main opener on the dates will be Parachute.

The band introduced the album with lead single "Rhythm of Love," a top ten hit which has already sold more than three hundred thousand digital copies. The T's  have performed the song on Good Morning America and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and its companion video is currently spinning on MTV. You can watch the video here:

Plain White T's frontman Tom Higgenson describes the Ian Kirkpatrick-produced Wonders of the Younger as a collection of songs designed to evoke the feeling of awe and the yearning for adventure remembered from youth.

"It's still very much a Plain White T's album," says Higgenson.  "The songs are sincere and melodic, no matter what the subject matter.  We want to create an experience that takes our fans to an unexpected place while still giving them songs to sing along to."

As Higgenson points out, the band is in a different place than the one that prompted hits like the twice-Grammy nominated "Hey There Delilah" and "1-2-3-4" (two songs that combined for over 5 million digital downloads)  and though there's still plenty of room in their world for romantic pop, such as "Rhythm of Love" (which was penned and sung by guitarist Tim Lopez), they're also branching into some adventurous new territory. It was during a performance of Cirque du Soleil's "O" that Higgenson's idea for the new set first took shape. "It just woke up something in me – this wonder," the singer/guitarist/songwriter recalls. "It was dark yet nostalgic.  I thought, I want to make an album that gives people this feeling."
