The Cringe kick off Summer tour supporting Mötley Crüe on “The Final Tour”

By on July 27, 2015

the cringeNew York City rockers The Cringe will kick off their summer tour this Tuesday, July 28th supporting Mötley Crüe on “The Final Tour,” alongside very special guest Alice Cooper. The Cringe, reprising their support slot from the fall/winter leg of the Mötley Crüe tour, will join the epic summer outing for 27 dates. Recently, the band wrapped up work on their new studio album helmed by producer Don Gilmore (Linkin Park, Trapt, Bullet For My Valentine, Hollywood Undead), the highly anticipated follow up to Hiding In Plain Sight. For up-to-date tour and album information, please visit the band’s official website:


Over the last decade, the Lower Manhattan-based band has made a name for itself by opening incredibly explosive live shows for bands like The New York Dolls, Steel Panther, Trapt, Alter Bridge, and Fuel. Check out video of The Cringe performing the song “In God We Trust” from their album Tipping Point during a show at Rogers Arena in Vancouver, BC on the 2014 fall/winter leg of Mötley Crüe’s “Final Tour”.


The Cringe – fronted by singer and songwriter Cusimano, whose members include lead guitarist James Rotondi (Air, Mr. Bungle), bassist Jonny Blaze (Crash Moderns, Alice Smith) and drummer Shawn Pelton (Sheryl Crow, SNL Band, Bruce Springsteen) – have been lauded both for their incendiary live performances and top-flight musicianship, reveling in rough-hewn textures, bold instrumental turns, and aggressive grooves. Enthused All Music Guide, “Cusimano’s infectious and insightful songwriting is the foundation for the band’s dynamic mix of artful, harmonic power pop and raw, aggressive punk garage-band energy.”
