O.A.R. is currently at work on their eighth studio album following the release of their live double disc CD and DVD, Live on Red Rocks. To announce their Tailgate Tour the band went directly to their fans posting a video message on their YouTube page.
“We look forward to stepping out of the studio energized and inspired by a record's worth of new material to play shows on our Tailgate Tour,” said saxophonist Jerry DePizzo. “We are excited to test out the new tunes and put a twist on the fan favorites.”
