New York, NY – Motion City Soundtrack will grace the cover of Alternative Press’s influential “Most Anticipated” issue – on newsstands in December 2006. This comes on the heels of their highly successful sophomore album Commit This To Memory and in anticipation of the follow-up CD due out in 2007. In addition, the band will hit the road one last time this year when they join up with The All-American Rejects Tournado Tour as the main support on November 24th at the Reliant Arena in Houston, TX.
