Following in the footsteps of their emo brethren Fall Out Boy, Panic! at the Disco, and My Chemical Romance, Hawthorne Heights have signed on to headline the fourth annual Nintendo Fusion tour.
The 40-city jaunt gives fans a chance to rock out while checking out the Nintendo DS Lite and the much-anticipated Wii console. Nintendo has not announced what games will be featured, or to what extent gamers will be able to sample the Wii.
"Nintendo always picks great rock bands, and we are happy to follow in that tradition this year," Hawthorne Heights singer JT Woodruff said in a statement. "But mainly, I am an old-school video game nerd."
Relient K, Emery, Plain White T's, and the Sleeping are also on the bill for the tour, which kicks off September 27 and concludes November 11. Exact cities and dates will be announced later this month.
"Video games are as important to the pop culture landscape as music," Nintendo's George Harrison said in a statement. "The Nintendo Fusion Tour has become a launching pad for the best in entertainment, from the hottest new bands to the best upcoming Nintendo products."
