Rookie of the Year is heading out on tour to support is upcoming album, Sweet Attention, which drops Aug. 26 on One Eleven Records.
Rookie of the Year began as a solo project by frontman and vocalist Ryan Dunson. Over the past three years, it evolved into a collaborative effort, thanks to the addition of Mike Kamerman and Brendon Schade on guitar and backing vocals, Pat Murphy on bass and Mick Parsons on drums.
