Snail Mail is already has a headlining show Ybor City this summer, but Lindsey Jordan's band is coming right back to Tampa Bay a few months later as opener on a tour headlined by fellow Baltimore outfit Turnstile.

Tickets to see Turnstile play Jannus Live in St. Petersburg, Florida on Friday, Oct. 14 go on sale to the public on Thursday, June 23 at 10 a.m. Prices have yet to be announced, but another Baltimoreon band, Jpegmafia, opens the show, too.

The tour is the second leg of Turnstile's outing supporting its latest album, Glow On, and arrives after the band's recent appearances on the "Tonight Show," "Jimmy Kimmel Live" and NPR.

Like its hardcore brethren Ceremony, Turnstile has long outrun its hardcore roots and carved out a place for itself among modern rock bands unafraid to break from the tenets of the genre that made it famous en route to finding a new place and feel for the grooves and riffs that drew fans in to begin with.

In short: it's pop music for the people who used to party at Czar in Ybor City in the early aughts and totally miss the hot dogs at Boneyard.
The only other Florida date on Turnstile's "Love Connection" tour is Oct. 13 at Orlando's House of Blues.
