America has rolled out its initial tour dates for the New Year. The band -- which is led by co-founders Gerry Beckley and Dewey Bunnell -- kicks things off on January 17th in Hankinson, North Dakota at the Dakota Magic Casino Hotel and, as of now, winds things down over two nights -- October 24th and 25th -- at Steelville, Montana's Wildwood Springs Lodge.
We asked Dewey Bunnell if after all these years working with Gerry Beckley he ever thinks of it almost like a marriage: "People say that, of course, yeah, and Gerry and I have had a few marriages that didn't last as long, but nevertheless, we've worked together since we were teenagers -- y'know, we really went to high school together. Then, once we got established, made then first albums, had some success, moved to California -- then you set up your own lives a little. Y'know where the areas are in your lives that you want to keep private and you know where you can blend your work with your lives."
