Taking Back Sunday and The Used will team up for what promises to be a hard-rocking tour this spring. The two bands both have new albums en route and this will be the first major North American run for each supporting their upcoming releases.

The trek launches March 14 in Dallas at the South By So What Festival and continues through an April 27 finale at the Orlando House of Blues. Tonight Alive and Sleepwave, the new band featuring former Underoath frontman Spencer Chamberlain, will provide support on the run.

Taking Back Sunday are supporting their upcoming album, 'Happiness Is,' which will be released March 18 just after the tour begins. The group has already released a video for their new single, 'Flicker, Fade.' The Used, meanwhile, recently announced an April 1 street date for their latest effort, 'Imaginary Enemy.'

Fans can purchase digital versions of both of the band's albums with a ticket via Applauze. These limited tickets will have a special reduced service fee along with a sale price to pre-order either or both albums. For those who download the free Applauze app for iPhone and iPod Touch, there is an additional specially priced bundle that includes both albums. There will also be an artist pre-sale beginning today at 2PM local time. General ticket sales begin Friday at 10 a.m. local time.
