Rob Thomas, whose second solo album, "Cradlesong," hits stores next Tuesday, will embark on a fall North American tour to promote the set.

The matchbox twenty lead singer will be accompanied by opening acts One Republic and Carolina Liar on the theater tour. Venues have yet to be announced other than the Sept. 23 opener at the Hard Rock Café in Hollywood, Fla., and tour closer, Nov. 12 at New York's Beacon Theater (in a multi-night run).

"Cradlesong," produced by Matt Serletic, features first single, "Her Diamonds."  It is streaming in full on rhapsody.com/vh1 and theleak.vh1.com.
