SJM Concerts and Rock Sound are extremely pleased to unveil the final lineup for the 2011 Rock Sound Riot tour. Joining our headliners, Buffalo’s finest Every Time I Die, will be main support Trash Talk,Defeater and Spycatcher.Tickets are onsale now via Gigsandtours.com and a 24-hour credit card hotline 0844 811 0051, and a limited number are also available from musicglue.net/rocksound.
Having dominated stages worldwide since their inception in 1998, Every Time I Die are nothing less than a force of nature. The Rock Sound Riot tour will be the only chance to see ETID in the UK before unveiling their as-yet untitled sixth album, set for release in 2012.
Says frontman Keith Buckley: "Your pints are probably the frostiest during the winter months, so for that reason alone I’m excited to get back into the UK. Add to that the fact we’re headlining the Rock Sound Riot Tour and I’m like a child on Christmas Eve. No, not embarrassed by his drunk uncle who kicked over all the potted plants in my parents’ house before passing out in the backseat of his own minivan, just excited. It’s an honour and a privilege to be a part of this tour.”
Trash Talk guitarist Garrett Stevenson commented: “We’ve known Every Time I Die for years: we did a short tour with them a while back and we’ve always stayed in contact. And the UK’s always dope – I love playing here as much as the States.”
They will be joined by cult heroes Defeater, fresh from tearing up Hevy Festival earlier this month after having released their staggering second album ‘Empty Days & Sleepless Nights’ (Bridge 9) in March. And the bill is completed by Rock Sound favourites Spycatcher, who have recently been added to the BBC In New Music We Trust playlist and whose phenomenal debut album ‘Honesty’ (Atticus Black) is out now.
"We’re hugely excited to have Every Time I Die, one of the most reliably awesome live bands in history, headlining the Rock Sound Riot Tour," says editor Ben Patashnik. "And with Trash Talk having just been added to the bill, saying this tour is going to be ‘quite hectic’ is something of an understatement. Defeater have been one of the most exciting bands to have come out of the US in ages so it’s a privilege to be putting them on their largest UK tour yet, and Spycatcher have barely been off the Rock Sound office stereo all year.”
