Scream It Like You Mean It was a successful annual tour put on by founders and owners Dave Shapiro of Los-Angeles-based The Agency Group Ltd. and Matthew Stewart of Washington, D.C.-based Outerloop Management. Yogi Allgood was also a founder, owner, and creator of this tour from 2010-2013, but has since left Outerloop Management. Matthew Stewart also left Outerloop Management in January 2014. The national tour throughout 2010-2011 reached the United States and Europe; and 2012-2013 reached throughout the United States. According to co-owner, Matthew Stewart "the whole point of this tour and the reason we're doing this for the third straight year is because we try our hardest to make [the tour] a positive experience for both the fans and the artists on it."[1] Matthew Stewart also mentioned that "in 2012 or 2013 we’d like to have the tour in the US, Europe, and Australia. We’d like to make it a world brand."[2]
