Update (2/7/12): Isaac Slade and Joe King give a track-by-track breakdown of Scars & Stories, the Fray's new album.
On the eve of releasing their third full-length album, Scars and Stories and almost exactly a year after playing at Invesco with U2, the Fray has announced plans to return to Red Rocks for a hometown show on Friday, May 11. The Denver date is part of a tour the band is about to embark on in support of the new album, produced by Brendan O'Brien and slated for release two Tuesdays from now. No word yet on who else is on the bill, but tickets ($46.50- $56.50, plus fees) go on sale on Saturday, February 3, at 10 a.m.
