British metalcore band Asking Alexandria are about to embark on the Monster Energy Outbreak Tour alongside As I Lay Dying, Memphis May Fire, and Attila. Suicide Silence was supposed to also be on the bill but the passing of singer Mitch Lucker has obviously required that band to pull off of the tour. Now, Sumerian Records label mates I See Stars have been added to the bill. They will be playing between Attila and Memphis May Fire. Tour dates and ticket information can be found here.
Asking Alexandria guitarist Ben Bruce states, “First and foremost I would like to talk about a dear friend of mine who was prematurely taken from us this month. Mitch Lucker was one of the kindest and most passionate people I have ever had the pleasure of calling my friend. My thoughts are not only with his family and friends, but also with the millions of people, worldwide, who Mitch helped to mould and inspire into the people they are today. A great man was lost who’s love and passion reached all corners of the globe. As many of you know, Suicide Silence were preparing to join us on our upcoming ‘Outbreak’ Tour. Due to the devastating circumstances they will no longer be joining us physically. They will however, Mitch included, be with us in spirit. We will go out on this tour with As I Lay Dying, Memphis May Fire & Attila to pay our tributes and respects to Mitch and his brothers in Suicide Silence. A portion of all tickets and official tour t-shirts sold will go to Mitch’s daughter for the Kenadee Lucker Education Fund.
“Suicide Silence could never be replaced on our tour as they are the only band in the world who could bring their element, intensity and power to the line-up. For the sake of giving the fans the best show we can under the circumstances, we have decided to add Sumerian family members I See Stars to the bill, NOT AS A REPLACEMENT BY ANY MEANS, but as another band who’s love and passion for music and their fans is as tried and true as ours. Now, more than ever, we need to come together to celebrate our collective love of music and to show compassion & solidarity in our scene. It’s time to put aside all petty differences and remember what it is that brings us all together, the music. Mitch- from myself and everyone else who will be taking part in this tour, you are forever in our hearts. This one’s for you. We love you. Cheers” READ MORE

Aaron has done artwork for such bands as Attila, Suicide Silence, After The Burial, Veil Of Maya, Kittie, The Used, and more.

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.

STYG blends melody, heaviness, and sincerity into one solid sound that will cater to fans of Comeback Kid, Ignite and Rise Against.

‘Rage’ is the Artery/Razor & Tie debut album by Atlanta, GA so-called ‘’party death metal’’ band Attila. From this description I came into reviewing this album hoping to hear some music that made me want to head bang a bit, grab a few beers, etc… Y’know, get into the mood to party and rock out, right? Well, I’ll say this: I bobbed my head along for a few sections, but… Well, read on.

Attila will release their Artery Recordings / Razor & Tie debut, ‘Rage’, on May 11th. The band, made up of Fronz (vocals), Nate (guitar), Chris (guitar), Sean (drums) and Paul (bass) is the fourth addition to the Artery/Razor & Tie joint venture. A self-proclaimed “party death metal” band, Attila are sure to spark interest and energy amongst the metal scene.
Coming from Atlanta, the members of Attila were influenced by a wide and eclectic range of artists from dirty south rappers to assorted metal bands. Their new album showcases the impression the Atlanta music scene instills with the band. Regarding the meaning behind ‘Rage’, lead singer Fronz stated, “The title can be perceived in many ways, one obviously being a state of extreme anger, and the other being its more obvious slang meaning – to party! I have always been a fan of play-on-words and double meanings, and that’s what drew me to this title more than anything.”
