THE PRETTY RECKLESS Announced As The Headliner For The 2013 SnoCore Tour
The SnoCore Tour, a celebration of music and winter sports, is back after a two-year absence. The tour has spanned more than fourteen years, running annually from 1996 to 2010 and was established as a way to fill the musical void during the winter months which was traditionally overlooked by other tour packages that are focused on spring and summer. In its first year, SnoCore showcased such bands as Sublime and Less Than Jake, over the years everyone from Blink-182 to Incubus to Everclear to System of a Down graced the SnoCore stage. Now, after a brief hiatus, Wind-up Records and TKO are proud to be uniting to bring SnoCore back to the winter 2014 music scene and back to its roots.
"We are thrilled to be re-launching SnoCore!" says Ed Vetri President and CEO of Wind-up Records. "This tour has been a fan favorite since it began and has always featured both established and up and coming amazing live bands. We are looking forward to making this THE winter music event for many years to come."
The Pretty Reckless is headlining, Heaven's Basement, The Letter Black, Crobot plus one band chosen from the international artist platform, ReverbNation, will also play in each market. Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased here. Tour dates and more information is listed below.
The Pretty Reckless will release their sophomore studio album Going To Hell this March via Razor & Tie. The band formed in 2009 and released their debut album Light Me Up in 2010 as well as a follow-up EP Hit Me Like A Man in 2012. After two years on the road supporting Light Me Up, the band has risen through rock 'n' roll's ranks to become a polarizing presence. Over the course of their debut and EP, the quartet has sold over one million combined albums and digital singles and have supported Evanescence, Guns N' Roses and Marilyn Manson on tour in addition to headline runs in both the U.S. and abroad. Momsen and her bandmates delivered nothing short of killer performances on their just-wrapped headlining North American "Going To Hell Tour" and the band will support Fall Out Boy on tour in Europe March 2014 after SnoCore wraps. Watch the Fan Instagram video for the current single "Heaven Knows", about to break the Rock Radio Top 20, and view the music video for "Going To Hell", both tracks from the forthcoming album.
Heaven's Basement have been making a name for themselves via their relentless touring and fiery live show plus music that features huge guitar riffs, killer melodies and an arena-rock sound. Formed in the East Midlands in England, Heaven's Basement have toured with the likes of The Pretty Reckless, Black Veil Brides, Papa Roach, Shinedown, Halestorm, Seether and more. Kerrang declared, "Heaven's Basement play as if their lives depend on it. They should already be a big name - bristling riffs and jagged, riotous hooks are their poison and exceptional is not too strong a word." The band's debut album, FILTHY EMPIRE, is in stores now via Red Bull Records; the first single from the album, "Fire, Fire," cracked the Top 10 on the Active Rock Radio chart. Heaven's Basement's new single, "Nothing Left To Lose," is set to impact at Active Rock in January; the video can be seen here. Heaven's Basement is Aaron Buchanan (vocals), Sid Glover (guitar), Rob Ellershaw (bass), and Chris Rivers (drums).
