UPDATE - 2/8@11:08AM: I put these in the comments but I thought they were important enough to stick up here too. Power Windows via his mysterious contact has heard of several more rumored dates. They are as follows:

Jun. 13 - Nashville, TN @ Starwood Amphitheater
Jun. 15 - West Palm Beach, FL @ Sound Advice Amphitheater
Jun. 16 - Tampa, FL @ Ford Amphitheater @ Florida State Fairgrounds
Jun. 18 - Atlanta, GA @ HiFi Buys Amphitheater
Jun. 19 - Charlotte, NC @ Verizon Wireless Amphitheater
Jun. 27 - Mansfield, MA @ Tweeter Center
Jul. 02 - Wantaugh, NY @ Jones Beach Amphitheater
Jul. 04 - Darien Lake, NY @ Six Flags
Jul. 07 - Homdel, NJ @ PNC Arts Center

... and there's a possibility that they'll play in Maine for the first time in 20 years. Thanks PW!

The latest album and tour rumors hit the web yesterday evening. Apparently this comes from a source at Atlantic Records but I'm unclear on the exact origin at this time. The album title will be Snakes and Arrows with the first single titled Far Cry (possibly Farcry) to be released on March 13th. This would mean that the album will likely be released a few weeks later in early/mid April, which is consistent with what's been reported so far. As far as the tour goes, Power Windows is reporting that the tour will kickoff on Wednesday June 13th at the Starwood Amphitheater in Nashville. I'll keep you posted as I learn more.
