Rock trio Hanson are ready to walk around the world barefoot — again.
The Grammy-nominated singers, — known best for their smash 1997 hit UMMM Bop — will embark on their Use Your Sole tour, with fellow bands HelloGoodbye, Steel Train and Sherwood.
As part of the tour, which is sponsored by Tom’s Shoes, all three Hanson brothers will walk a mile barefoot in conjunction wit their charitable Take The Walk Campaign, which aims at putting shoes on the feet of less fortunate children. The band said they have collectively lapped the world (24,902 miles) on foot, since launching the fundraising campaign last year.
Taylor Hanson said he is excited about the chance to unveil some new work to the band’s fan base.
“This tour will be a great chance to premier brand new music for our fans each night,” he said. “And to share the stage with HelloGoodbye, in cities across the country”.
The band’s next studio is due to be released in 2010; the tour kicks off Sept. 30 in Tulsa, OK.
