Michigan hardcore quartet Famous Last Words (InVogue Records) have announced their upcoming US tour. Joining them on the three-week “Touring Dead” Tour is Victory Records’ Tear Out The Heart. Support will come from For All I Am.
Having formed in 2009 in Petoskey, Michigan, Famous Last Words continue to break the mould of a typical metal band, incorporating hardcore influences and conceptual experimentation into their sound.
Since then, the band have embarked on multiple headline tours throughout the U.S. and Canada as well as joining the likes of Hawthorne Heights, Ice Nine Kills & Red Jumpsuit Apparatus as main support. The band continues to bring the electricity of their live show to venues of all shapes and sizes across North America, playing South By So What!? In 2014 and recently announcing their return to the festival this year.
After signing to InVogue Records in 2012, Famous Last Words released their second EP, 2012’s “Pick Your Poison” with Cameron Mizell. This release would put the band on the map the alternative scene and act as a well-earned springboard for the two releases that followed. 2013 saw the release of debut full-length Two-Faced Charade, produced by Nick Sampson and Joey Sturgis. Two-Faced Charade would see Famous Last Words break into the Billboard #200 for the first time, as well as hitting the lofty heights of #2 on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart. The music video for lead single ‘The Show Must Go On’ has racked up over 5 Million Views on YouTube in a little over 18 months, cementing the quartet as one of the leading emerging metal bands in the country.
Just a year later, the band followed up with their second LP, Council Of The Dead, which saw the band retain the services of Nick Sampson with fine results, this time penetrating the top #100 of the Billboard Charts and delivering their most refined and mature release to date.
As the band continues to expand their horizons and draw inspiration from a growing set of influences and sources, Famous Last Words began shooting a short film, Two-Faced Charade directed by Charlie Anderson, starring Jeremy Tollas (Vocalist), Pamela Fila, and Shaunpaul Costello, which debuted at the Trocadero Theatre in Philadelphia on February 8th, prior to its international release in March.
With a short film release, SXSW!?, and a US tour on the horizon for Spring, 2015 is shaping up very promisingly for the Petoskey quartet.
