NEW YORK, NY (May 6, 2009) – Ever the artist who looks for ways to connect with his audience and fans, ACE ENDERS has announced his "BBQ ACROSS AMERICA TOUR," just in time for Summer! Presented by AMP Energy Drink and Denny's Allnighter and slated to kick off on June 19th in Vineland, NJ and circle around the U.S., Ace will be supported by Person L and The Dangerous Summer on all dates (The Gay Blades, My Favorite Highway and School Boy Humor will play select shows). Prior to each show, Ace and his band, A Million Different People, along with other bands on the bill, will be hanging out one hour before doors open with fans who preorder tickets through the exclusive pre-sale link found here: Additionally, Ace and friends will host afterparties at Denny's as part of the Denny's Allnighter program, open to all fans.

With a highly successful tour supporting All American Rejects ending tonight in El Paso, TX and a round of dates earlier this Spring with Craig Owens of Chiodos, (not to mention a packed-to-the-gills performance at The Bamboozle this past weekend), Ace Enders & A Million Different People are going to recharge their batteries at home before packing up their equipment into their R.V. again... this time with a grill, an apron and a cooler. "The summer tour is going to be awesome," Ace beams excitedly. "We're going to BBQ at every show every day either right outside the venue or in a city it will be in the closest park or area we can do it in. I'm very passionate about barbecuing and this is the most excited I've ever been for a tour. I can't wait to meet new people and hang out with all of our old fans and all of the other awesome bands coming along on the tour."

His new album When I Hit The Ground is making major waves in the press and media, all showering it with ample heaps of praise. Alternative Press compared the album to Jimmy Eat World's Chase This Light and The Startling Line's Direction, hailing, "When I Hit the Ground is one of the best glossy hybrids resulting from a clean collision of nu-emo and 90's alternative pop... (four stars)". Hear/Say Magazine chimed, "Enders may sing of growing pains across When I Hit the Ground, but he seems more comfortable in his own skin than ever before."

"I'm really excited to finally have this new record out," he explains. "Everyone has been really receptive and open to the new stuff and it just gets better with more and more people singing along at each show."
