Bring Me the Horizon add Thrice to upcoming North American tour

Bring Me the Horizon already announced plans to embark on a massive North American tour in the new year, but now, the group has announced who will be joining them during the month-long trek. On Monday (Nov. 19), the British band confirmed that Thrice will join them, and previously announced the Fever 333, on their forthcoming “First Love” tour.

“We are excited to announce that we will be heading out on tour with Bring Me the Horizon this January-February,” Thrice posted on their official Twitter account while Bring Me the Horizon simply uploaded an updated version of their tour flyer to include the California rockers.

The “First Love” tour is in support of Bring Me the Horizon’s forthcoming new album, Amo. Originally set for a Jan. 11 release date, the record will now see a release date of Jan. 25 via Sony Music/ RCA Records. Pre-orders for the album are currently available on the band’s website.

Like Bring Me the Horizon, the upcoming tour will be in support of Thrice’s new album, Palms. The group released the record, their tenth studio effort, in September. The album peaked at the number two spot on Billboard’s Top Rock Albums chart and peaked at the top spot on the Top Hard Rock Albums and Independent Albums chart.

In conjunction with the tour news, the band premiered the music video for their latest single, “Only Us.” Watch it here.

As for the Fever 333, the trio will release their debut album in early 2019. Titled Strength in Numb333rs, the record is due out Jan. 18, 2019 through Roadrunner Records. Watch the video for the album’s lead single “Burn It” here.

Young the Giant extend ‘Mirror Master’ tour into 2019

Young the Giant fans rejoice! The band just extended their current tour into the spring of 2019. On Monday (Oct. 22), the California-founded band formally announced an additional 28 stops for their current North American Mirror Master tour. The second leg of the excursion will begin on Jan. 29 at the Flynn Theatre in Burlington, Vermont and conclude a month an a half later on March 9 at the McDonald Theater in Eugene, Oregon.

Sure, Sure will open for Young the Giant throughout the second leg of the tour. Pre-sale tickets for the newly added shows are currently available. General tickets will go on sale beginning this Friday, Oct. 26 at 10 a.m. local time.

The newly added dates are in support of Young the Giant’s recently released record, Mirror Master. The record was released earlier this month through Elektra Records. The record, the band’s fourth studio album, recently peaked at the No. 69 spot on Billboard‘s 200 chart.

According to a press release provided by the five-piece, the album focuses on personal self-awareness and growth.

“Within one single day, we’re all so many different people. Especially with the use of social media, we’re not just living in the now — we’re living on several different timelines simultaneously,” vocalist Sameer Gadhia explained in the press statement.

“A lot of the album came from thinking about how we have all these separations within ourselves that allow us to go about our day. We don’t have to be a certain thing; we can contradict ourselves and show all these different sides of who we are.”

Mirror Master is the follow-up to the group’s 2016 release, Home of the Strange.

The Struts to bring their glam rock goodness to North America in the fall

If you’ve ever seen the Struts live, then you would definitely understand why the group has been busy over the course of the past couple of years. Between playing music festivals around the world and opening for massive bands like The Killers, the Foo Fighters, and the Rolling Stones, you can see why there’s no evidence of them slowing down. Dave Grohl has even called the quartet the best opening act the Foo Fighters have ever had.

On Wednesday (July 18), the English glam rockers added a headlining North American tour to their already packed 2018 itinerary. Titled the “Body Talks” tour, after their current single, the upcoming excursion will kick off on Sept. 21 at St. Andrew’s Hall in Detroit and conclude a month and a half later on Nov. 9 at the Fillmore in San Francisco.

Show tickets will go on sale beginning this Friday, July 20, at 10 a.m. local time. Tickets can be purchased on the band’s website here.

White Reaper, Spirit Animal, Thunderpussy, and the Wrecks will open for the band during the fall time excursion. Spirit Animal and White Reaper will play the part of opening acts from Sept. 21 to Oct. 25 (White Reaper will not perform on Oct. 6) while Thunderpussy and the Wrecks will take over for them from Nov. 2 – 9 (Thunderpussy will not perform on Nov. 3).

The upcoming tour will be in support of the Struts sophomore album. The title and release date for the forthcoming record have yet to be announced. The impending album will be the follow-up to their wildly successful debut album Everybody Wants. The debut was released in 2014 in the United Kingdom, but was re-released in the United States in 2016. Everybody Wants features the Struts’ breakout singles “Put Your Money on Me,” “Kiss This,” and “Could Have Been Me.”

Watch CHVRCHES navigate a dystrophic nightmare in ‘Miracle’

Earlier this month, CHVRCHES premiered another new song from their much-anticipated third studio album, Love is Dead. On Wednesday (April 25), the Scottish trio decided to gift fans the official music video for the record’s latest single, “Miracle.” The barely three-and-a-half-minute clip finds frontwoman Lauren Mayberry in the middle of what appears to be a cross between a gang war and a dystrophic nightmare.

The clip, which was shot in one take, follows Mayberry as she tries to avoid getting involved in all the bloodshed and fighting, but no matter what she does, she still winds up getting sucked into the fighting.

The music video was directed by Warren Fu who previously worked with the group on their “Clearest Blue” video.

“We’re all huge fans of Warren’s work and were so excited when he agreed to be the creative director on this record,” says Mayberry. “We met him when he directed the video for our song ‘Clearest Blue,’ and it’s so cool to see the world you imagined come to life through his work.”

Watch the full clip for “Miracle” above.

“Miracle” will join previously released tracks “Get Out,” “My Enemy,” and “Never Say Die” on CHVRCHES impending new album. Love is Dead will be released on May 25 through the band’s longtime home of Glassnote Records.

In support of the new set of tunes, the band announced earlier this week plans to hit the road during the summer and fall months. The complete list of upcoming tour dates can be found here.

The upcoming trek will officially kick off on June 3 with the band’s appearance at the Governors Ball Music Festival in New York.

Metallica to embark on North American WorldWired Tour

Metallica’s high anticipated Grammys performance with Lady Gaga ended up being a little of a hot mess due to some technical difficulties, but difficulties be damned as they soldiered through “Moth into Flame.” On Monday (Feb. 13), the California-founded band put their Sunday night gig on the back burner as they unveiled plans to hit the North American touring circuit later this year. The North American leg of Metallica’s “WorldWired Tour” is set to kick off on May 10 at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore and wrap up about three months later on Aug. 16 at Commonwealth Stadium in Edmonton, Alberta.

Avenged Sevenfold, Volbeat, and 2017 Grammy nominees Gojira will hit the road alongside the band. The “WorldWired Tour” is the band’s first outing in eight years. Their last tour was in support of their ninth studio album, Death Magnetic. For the release of their new album, Hardwired… to Self Destruct, Metallica decided to stick to more intimate venues as opposed to hitting major markets’ arenas and stadiums.

Pre-sale tickets for those in Metallica’s fan club will go on sale beginning this Tuesday, Feb. 14. Public ticket sales will begin on Friday, Feb. 17, at 10 a.m. local time with the exception of the Dallas show (AT&T Stadium) and their appearance at Festival d’ete de Quebec in Quebec City. The Dallas date will go on sale Saturday, Feb. 18 and the Festival d’ete de Quebec will go on sale March 9. For more information about the upcoming tour, head on over to Metallica’s website.
