Chicago female fronted metal band HESSLER ‘Ghost Dance Summer Tour’

By on June 2, 2014


HESSLER a Chicago based, female fronted heavy metal band boasting a deadly twin guitar attack will be touring the United States and Canada on their Ghost Dance Summer Tour beginning June 10th 2014.

Since the release of the Bad Blood E.P. in 2011, HESSLER has toured nationally and released five music videos.  Performances in 2012 including SXSW & Rocklahoma shaped the band for their first full-length album “Comes With the Territory”. After the album release on November 27, 2012, the band embarked on a U.S. Tour in support. A return to SXSW in 2013 kicked off a new month long U.S. Tour followed by a return performance at Rocklahoma w/ Guns N’ Roses, Alice in Chains, Korn, and many more.

In 2013, the band also took home the Chicago Reader award for “Best Metal Band”.  HESSLER provided music for the first documentary on legendary wrestler “The Dynamite Kid” Tom Billington. Following a successful series of summer festive performances, a new music video was released through Revolver Magazine.

After completing a 25 show coast-to-coast U.S. tour, HESSLER brought in a new lead singer San Antonio native and 2012 X-Factor contestant, Jessikill. A classically trained singer, Jessikill was a perfect fit for HESSLER’s personality and sound.

2014 brings in a new E.P. and first release with new singer Jessikill, titled ‘Ghost Dance,” which is slated for a June 10th release. The band will embark on the Ghost Dance Summer Tour, during which they will be playing for the first time in Oregon, Washington, Montana and North Dakota. A second leg will follow at the end of July covering the Eastern U.S. and the band’s first time in Canada.

The Hessler is endorsed by Engl amps and U.S. publicity is provided by Echo Eyes Touring and Management.
