First Annual This is New England Tour - Dates Announced
Maple Syrup. Maine Lobster. The Boston Red Sox. Mark Walhberg. Dunkin' Donuts. Clam Chowder. These are few of the things New England is known for... until now. Crimson Management are pleased to announce their First Annual This Is New England Tour. With New England being a reputable hot bed of up and coming music of all genres, the purpose of this tour is to showcase some of the region’s native-born acts that are making waves in the greater music scene today. The lineup will feature VANNA, Therefore I Am, and A Loss For Words. The tour starts November 28th in Hartford, CT, and spans 17 dates with the last show in Providence, RI. on December 19th.
As the headliner, VANNA (Epitaph Records) hails from Boston, MA with their own blend of hardcore, alternative, and good ol’ fashion rock & roll. Their second full length, A New Hope (produced by Steve Evetts), was released March 24th 2009. For the past four years Vanna have relentlessly criss-crossed the country and has cultivated an army of diehard fans, better known as “Vanimals." Their exhilarating live show is matched only by the energy of their crowds, while their infectiously melodic choruses captivate audiences everywhere. They have recently taken on a new screamer/vocalist, Davey Muise, who is single-handedly breathing new life into the band. VANNA is currently out on the Atticus Tour with Finch, Bless the Fall, Drop Dead, Gorgeous, and Let’s Get It. VANNA has also toured with Poison the Well, A Static Lullaby, The Human Abstract, From First to last, Four Year Strong, Alesana, iwrestledabearonce, Gwen Stacy, and Pierce the Veil. As an added bonus, the band have re-launched their webstore today in conjunction with announcing this tour. A whole slew of new Vanna merchandise can be found at: www.allinmerch.com/vanna
Therefore I Am (Equal Vision Records) is the post-hardcore outfit from Boston. Their debut full-length The Sound of Human Lives was released June 23rd 2009. They toured this past summer on the Vans Warped Tour and are currently on the road with From First to Last, Greeley Estates, and The Color of Violence. Named one of Alternative Press’ “Top 100 Bands to Know in 2009”, Therefore I Am are quickly carving out a name for themselves in the national music scene.
A Loss for Words brings a catchy pop punk sound to the tour that has been cultivated from the Southern shore of Massachusetts. They have recently finished up a tour with Set Your Goals, Four Year Strong, Fireworks, and Polar Bear Club. They are currently on the road with Energy & The Wonder Years. Their album The Kids Can’t Lose was self-released May 12th 2009.
This Is New England Tour will set sail in late November to show the rest of the country what kind of talent is coming out of the Northeast these days. Much like the Red Sox finally rising up as a World Series-winning team, this tour is a force to be reckoned with.
