Maroon 5 have revealed plans to hit the road this winter in support of their brand new album, Overexposed. Joined by special guests Neon Trees and Owl City, the pop-rockers will hit New England for shows in New Hampshire and Connecticut.

Fans in New Hampshire can catch Maroon 5 and company when the tour stops at Manchester’s Verizon Wireless Arena on Sunday, February 17. Tickets for the show, which range in price from $29.50 to $79.50, will go on sale Saturday at noon through Ticketmaster. The tour will stop at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut on Friday, February 22. Tickets for the show will go on sale Saturday at noon through Ticketmaster for $65 and $85.

Overexposed, Maroon 5’s fourth studio effort and follow-up to 2010’s Hands All Over, debuted at #2 on the Billboard 200 after its release in June. Recorded in the band’s hometown of Los Angeles, the album was executive produced by Max Martin with additional tracks produced by Benny Blanco and Ryan Tedder. Overexposed has been powered by smash singles “Payphone” and “One More Night”, which has been at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for six straight weeks. The third single off of the new album, “Daylight”, is scheduled to impact radio next month.

“‘Moves Like Jagger’ was the first time we ever worked with an outside writer, so we decided to try it some more on this record,” explained guitarist James Valentine in a press release. ” At this point in our career I think it was a good thing to completely mix up our process and it yielded good results, as well as a more collaborative spirit within the band. We wanted to make something that sounded contemporary with the elements of a lot of early eras of pop music. This is our most ‘pop’ record ever and we weren’t shy about really going for it.”
