Your Demise have paid their dues and are ready to take a well-deserved leap into the stratosphere. With their as-yet untitled third album set to drop in March, the Impericon Rock Sound Exposure Tour will be the first chance to see one of the UK’s best-loved bands playing songs from one of 2012’s most eagerly-anticipated releases and establishing themselves as one of the best bands in the world today.
And with main support coming from Trapped Under Ice everyone’s going to be raising their game beyond what’s strictly healthy. Says YD frontman Ed McRae "We’re really looking forward to doing the Rock Sound tour next year, it’s going to be sick. Every band on this tour will kill it, no doubt. We’re gonna do it how we always do it, just go out there and have as much fun as possible and get everyone involved."
Says Rock Sound editor Ben Patashnik: “Your Demise are going to own 2012, and they’re the perfect headliner for the Rock Sound Impericon Exposure Tour. And since we heard Trapped Under Ice’s staggeringly powerful new album we’ve been hugely excited about bringing them to the UK for the first time in ages. Man Overboard are going to be bringing some good-time pop-punk vibes, and Basement have been one of our favourite bands of the year so far.”
Impericon added: “We are extremely proud to work with this group of such strong emerging talents alongside one of our favourite publications in Europe. We have worked with Your Demise for years now and we hope to be a able to support the entire tour and push this great and unique scene in UK.”
Man Overboard are stoked to be a part of this incredible line-up, saying: "The RS tour is going to be an especially good time because it’s a diverse bill. Hardcore to pop punk to emo with bands from USA and UK. We couldn’t be more excited!"
Rounding off this kick-ass line-up, homegrown heroes Basement have said: "It really means a lot to be a part of this tour. The lineup is so incredibly diverse and we are excited to be a part of something so different."
