Middle Class Rut To Hit The Road This April With Chevelle + Headlining Tour in February, March
"Their sound is nothing short of colossal, and one that a mere two?piece shouldn't be able to create, combining the boisterous swagger and pomp of Jane's Addiction and the feral fury of Rage Against the Machine." - Kerrang!
We are proud to announce that the Sacramento, CA-based duo Middle Class Rut will be embarking on an exciting new tour this April where they will open for Chicago rock act Chevelle.
Middle Class Rut has toured with Chevelle in the past, as well as with the likes of Muse, Social Distortion, Them Crooked Vultures, Alice In Chains, 30 Seconds To Mars and Linkin Park, among others. Before hitting the road with Chevelle in April, MCR will also perform a string of headlining dates with Dinosaur Pile Up and Brick and Mortar; see all dates below.
Comprised of vocalist/guitarist Zack Lopez and vocalist/drummer Sean Stockham, Middle Class Rut raised the bar with their latest release, June 2013's Pick Up Your Head, which sees the duo opening up their sound. "We realized we'd exhausted everything we could do with drums, guitar, and vocals," Lopez explains. "Once we decided to take an 'anything goes' approach, the songs poured out. We were freer with layering and didn't worry if we couldn't reproduce it live, as long as we captured the music with the highest energy possible."
