Wind-up Records and TKO have announced the 2015 SNOCORE Tour itinerary featuring headliner Flyleaf, with Adelitas Way confirmed as direct support. Framing Hanley and Fit For Rivals will open the show. The tour began February 3 at Amos South End in Charlotte, North Carolina, and will wrap on the West Coast mid-March.
The SNOCORE Tour first launched close to two decades ago, and from 1996 to 2010 staged annual runs filling a void of minimal touring activity during the winter months. In its first year, SNOCORE showcased bands that included Sublime, Less Than Jake, Guttermouth, and Shankin’ Pickle. Over the years, Blink-182, Incubus, Everclear, System of a Down, Seether, Shinedown, and Alien Ant Farm, among others, have participated in SNOCORE.
Multi-platinum band Flyleaf released their fourth album, Between The Stars, on September 16, 2014. The album, which was produced by Don Gilmore (Linkin Park, Three Days Grace, Avril Lavigne), debuted in the #1 spot on Billboard’s Top Current Alternative Albums and has yielded their explosive lead single “Set Me On Fire,” which is making its way up the rock radio charts. Flyleaf began over a decade ago with their self-titled debut platinum album that included their hit song “All Around Me” which has sold over one million digital downloads. Flyleaf spent 133 weeks in the Billboard Top 200, Top 15 on the Rock Albums & Alternative Albums charts. Its follow-up, Memento Mori, went Top 10 on the Billboard Top 200. The lead single “Set Me On Fire” can be viewed here.
Adelitas Way is a five-piece rock group hailing from Las Vegas, Nevada formed in 2005.
They released their first full-length debut album on Capitol/Virgin Records in 2009 to rave reviews from Tunelab and other music blogs with a debut at #16 on Billboard’s “Heat Seekers” chart. The band has deepened their sound while staying true to the fierceness of spirit with their new album, Stuck, the follow-up to 2011’s Home School Valedictorian which proves to be the most refined yet thrillingly gritty album that Adelitas Way has offered up so far.
After spending 2 1/2 years working on their follow up to 2010’s A Promise To Burn, Framing Hanley released their 3rd album, The Sum of Who We Are, in April of 2014. The lead single “Criminal” quickly reminded fans of rock music everywhere just who Framing Hanley is, and the band picked up right where they left off. Now on the heels of releasing what the band and many critics feel is their best album to date, Framing Hanley are ready to continue their rise to the top in the rock n roll scene.
From the second the inimitable growl of Fit For Rivals’ Renee Phoenix knocks you off your feet, you know this is no ordinary female front-woman kicking ass. Juxtaposed with their hard hitting music is a band that’s having a lot of fun in their own eccentric and stylish way, distinguished with Phoenix’s dancing charisma and hard rock with funky grooves. Their new record, Freak Machine, is set for release in early 2015 in the wake of over 20 million YouTube views and playing to audiences in the thousands nationwide.
Confirmed SNOCORE Tour appearances include these markets with additional dates to be announced shortly.
