Bursting at the seams with a vibrant energy and overall positivity comes the Orange County sensation STICK TO YOUR GUNS, who’s newest offering, The Hope Division, is the soundtrack to the new hardcore/punk revolution. Visionary Jesse Barnett (vocals) was originally inspired to form a band that would provide him with a medium to project his view points and reflect his musical influences and he continues to do just that to this very day bringing a new stable of accomplished musicians on board. STYG blends melody, heaviness, and sincerity into one solid sound that will cater to fans of Comeback Kid, Ignite and Rise Against.
STYG are currently in the midst of a headlining North American tour dubbed, “The Faith In The Untamed Tour”, with As Blood Runs Black, Attila, For The Fallen Dreams and Close Your Eyes. Be sure to head over now to www.myspace.com/styg
to check out their complete tour itinerary and also view the stellar new video clip for the track, “Amber”, shot by renowned director Scott Hansen (Otep, For Today).
Look for STYG on tour throughout the remainder of the year:
November 4 to 19 – Europe and UK with Winds of Plague, For Today, and Monuments
November 22 to Dec 3 – Headlining in Australia and New Zealand with support from First Blood
Dec 5 to 12 – Headlining in Japan with support from Loyal to the Grave
Dec 16 to 19 – Headlining the “Keeping Warm in A Cold World” Mini-Tour through Southern California with support from Sleeping Giant. These dates will have free admission with the donation of a sleeping bag or other approved item.
Barnett states: “The positive reactions each and every night of this tour have blown away any expectations we had regarding the turn outs at the shows, and our band in general. The kids that have made it out to the shows have given us everything they have, which has made these dates so memorable already. We are looking forward to the remainder of the tour and hope that we will be fortunate enough to have everyone continue to give us their best.”
“The Hope Division is more than a new record. Every day our world is defeated by carelessness, ignorance, and selfishness. We can’t look away from our television set that allows us all to look into the problems facing the world as a whole, yet we are still just looking. Our leaders wage war on things like drugs, terror, and poverty, yet they fail to see that these are all products of a pre-existing condition. The problem starts with the heart and magnifies into injustice from there. People all over the world suffer as a result. These songs are their stories. When the world around us crumbles, provide the hope needed to rebuild.”
