The Press Release:
LA alternative metal band Gemini Syndrome have just announced that after a lengthy, multi-year absence from touring that they will be returning to the road this summer. The band will be joined by A Killer’s Confession, Ovtlier, and Pushing Veronica. Also added to a select number of shows will be Eva Under Fire. All tour dates are listed below.
Since everyone in my city is out at the market stocking up on milk and bread for the looming blizzard that will probably only inconvenience our metropolis for a single day, I decided to share the news about this new tour that features a headlining In This Moment and some super cool guest support acts. Check out the brief statement below along with the poster and tour dates.
Blood Legion! We’ll be hitting the road with Motionless In White, Avatar, and Gemini Syndrome as support this April and May. Pre-sales start tomorrow and general on-sale this Friday. More info here: http://www.inthismomentofficial.com/tour
Avatars Johannes Eckerström adds “We’ve got many friends in the United States nowadays and we feel like making some new ones. We are grateful for this opportunity to hit the road. I believe this will not only be a chance to meet all our faithful Avatar Country-citizens once again, but I think there will be a busy day on our embassy following this. It’s funny that the one I look forward to the most to perform in front of this time is YOU, who won’t be reading this as you don’t know who we are yet. Boy, oh boy are you in for a treat… It’s on.” Continue reading In This Moment Announce “Half God Half Devil” Tour→
The 2017 Tour Announcements seem to be picking up a steady pace as we head towards the winter holidays and that is fine by me since it lets me start my musical year of 2017 off in a proper fashion. This tour will find you welcoming visitors from a strange planet and interestingly enough their name begins with an “S” – Read on.
The Press Release:
Coinciding with the release of their sophomore album VESSELS, cinematic rock band STARSET will launch a U.S. headl Flint, Michigan, with a hometown record release show in Columbus, Ohio set for January 20. Direct support on the tour is Gemini Syndrome. Tickets go on sale starting Friday, December 9.
The four-week outing will take front man Dustin Bates and his helmeted-and-pressure-suited crew, bassist Ron DeChant, guitarist Brock Richards and drummer Adam Gilbert, across the country, stopping in such cities as Chicago, Denver, Spokane, Reno, Scottsdale, Dallas, Houston, Little Rock, Baltimore and Pittsburgh with a Los Angeles show at The Roxy confirmed for January 31. See below for full tour routing.
“We look forward to the freedom that headlining will bring – allowing us to further realize our sonic and visual objectives. This will be the most immersive series of ‘demonstrations’ to date,” says Bates.
VESSELS–set for release January 20, 2017 via Razor & Tie–is a data-stream rendered in sound where Bates becomes the deus-ex-machina in an age of information overload that is increasingly complex yet ultimately human. From atmospheric opener, “Back To The Earth” to the driving hooks of the album’s first single, “Monster” to the catchy, nearly progressive moments of “Frequency,” Bates has succeeded in escaping the gravity of formula radio rock. Instead, he has re-imagined his genre-defying vision as an arena where Hans Zimmer interfaces with Radiohead and Trent Reznor. VESSELS was produced by Rob Graves (Halestorm, Red) and mixed by Ben Grosse (Breaking Benjamin, Filter), who also helmed their 2014 Razor & Tie debut, Transmissions, a landmark album selling in excess of a quarter million combined albums, streams and downloads, and propelled by singles including the unforgettable “My Demons” (which spent an unprecedented 43 weeks scaling rock charts).

This one came a few days ago but since I had so many other items queued up to run – it had to take a number. Sorry that is going to happen at times but with touring stuff it’s still valid information worth sharing. Check out the latest touring plans from Drowning Pool and their “Not So Silent Night” Tour. I love that title. Very clever and here we go.
