This is a great tour for all bands involved. Especialy STYG... its exposure, they're finally able to reach out to a new crowd, a crowd that maybe wouldn't have even bothered listening to them because of the 'scene' they're involved in. I'm glad STYG, and the rest of these hardcore bands are on tours like this, because it sucks playing to Terror fans every single tour. MIW are great dudes, all hardcore guys under the silly paint. They have a great thing going for them... Remember 18 Visions? They did the same shit, just not as extreme. Also, The Banner, they loved makeup and no one gave them shit.
I'm happy for STYG... finally able to reach out to other people.
You do realize they just did the All Stars tour, toured a For Today / A Skylit Drive tour and did tours headlined by bands such as I See Stars and another by Senses Fail, right?
Outside of when they head off to Europe majority of their tours are with bands from completely different genres instead of bands more like STYG. It most likely stems from their label being Sumerian and them putting them on these tours so they can push STYG to more people but I wouldn't act like this is the first time it's ever happened.
