Presented by the Keep A Breast Foundation and House Of Blues Entertainment, the tour’s aim is to raise awareness about breast cancer through live shows, interviews, videos and social media. A portion of all ticket sales will go to the Keep A Breast Foundation.

Along with promoting breast cancer awareness, Uh Huh Her will have new material to share with fans. The duo’s upcoming album, Nocturnes, arrives in stores Oct. 11.
“I’ve chosen to become part of Keep A Breast because like many others I have been directly affected by breast cancer in my family,” Grey said in a statement. “Luckily both my grandmothers are breast cancer survivors. I think awareness and education are so important in treating this disease because if detected early enough, chances of survival are greatly increased. I’m so happy to be a part of something that will reach young and old alike, and what better way than through music.”
