The band will release the song “Leader of The Landslide” on Aug. 2, and follow up with a video on Aug. 5.
Their performance will not be the first time they play Pittsburgh, but it will be their first show at PPG Paints Arena, says Alyssa Blumling, marketing manager.
“We are very excited about having them here. We are very excited to welcome them into the arena,” she says.
