Crown The Empire have announced plans for their first major headline tour. The Generation Now Tour, presented by MerchNow will kick off May 7 in Toledo , OH and run through May 26. The trek includes a stop at Skate and Surf Festival in Freehold, NJ on May 18th. Supporting Crown the Empire on the entire run will be Capture The Crown, Palisades , Heartist and Famous Last Words. Head to replies to check out the dates.
I can see most of the users around here absolutely hating this tour. I'm a pretty big fan of CTE and Palisades, though, and I dig a bit of Famous Last Words every now and then. Really hoping this is good exposure for Palisades, they're incredibly underrated.
Haha exactly what I thought. Makes me realize that I legitimately mistook one for the other before. I was complaining about CTE the whole time I saw them playing live even though it's CTC that I don't like
Are all four bands doing Skate and Surf or just Palisades and Crown the Empire?
Pretty sure all of them are playing. There were no "stars" or anything saying the last two aren't playing.
If you haven't heard of Heartist, you should definitely check them out. They're signed by Roadrunner Records and they're touring with some big names. They're on the Enter Shikari tour right now. A week after that finishes, they're doing Europe with Killswitch. After that, they're on this tour. I expect nothing but big things for this band.
Heartist are decent, the rest of this line up is awful. The 14 year olds will love it though.
You should see the comments on Heartist's Facebook page regarding this tour. All of their fans are saying how shitty this tour is and Heartist/Palisades should co headline their own tour. Maybe next year but this is a great exposure tour. Both "Crowns" are gaining a lot of steam in the scene right now so I'm expecting Heartist and Palisades to be picking up a few new fans.
Which one of these bands have a live show that is completely backtracked?
I get all these bands confused.
Capture the Crown is the band that is 100% backtracked and yea they are awful, crown the empire is also pretty bad i've been suspicious they also backtrack and they just pay for everything so they seem big, so ya this tour is pretty bad
