As they prepare to begin their fall headlining "Intergalactic Tour" later this month, reggae-influenced alternative rock band IRATION today (10/9) revealed their initial touring plans for 2018 with the announcement of the "Heatseekers Winter Tour 2018." The 14-date West Coast headlining trek--featuring support from The Movement and Tyrone's Jacket--commences January 18, 2018 in Bakersfield, CA and stops in Fresno, Sacramento (for back-to-back shows at Ace of Spades), Santa Cruz (for another two-night stand at The Catalyst), Chico, Portland, Reno, Park City, Grand Junction, Denver and Tucson before wrapping February 8 in Flagstaff. Tickets for the "Heatseekers Winter Tour 2018" dates go on sale this Friday, October 13 at 10am local time.

"We're pleased to announce the return of the Heatseekers Winter Tour 2018 with our friends The Movement and newcomers Tyrone's Jacket," shares the band. "We'll be jamming new tunes and old favorites as well as playing different sets for the doubleheader shows. We look forward to seeing every one and sharing the luv! PS: don't forget to bring the heat!"

On October 24, the Hawaiian-bred, Santa Barbara-based road warriors will kick off their fall headlining "Intergalactic Tour" featuring support from Fortunate Youth and Through The Roots (plus Inner Circle and Katastro on select dates). The 19-date outing will take IRATION across the U.S. through November 18, stopping in such cities as Lawrence, Columbus, Providence, Washington, DC, Myrtle Beach, Nashville, Baton Rouge, Albuquerque and Phoenix, along with back-to-back shows at Jannus Landing in St. Petersburg, FL and their 5th annual performance at the Del Mar Racetrack in San Diego.
