Cincinnati pop-punks Mixtapes have announced plans to hit the road with Masked Intruder for the “Let’s Talk Industry Tour.” Kicking of May 12th in Columbus, the bands will make their way around the Eastern half of the U.S. ending the tour at Bled Fest in Howell, MI on May 25th.
“We first played with Masked Intruder in their home state of Wisconsin about two years ago and loved them right away,” says Mixtapes’ guitarist/vocalist Ryan Rockwell. “We’ve talked about touring together ever since and now we get to, and we couldn’t be more excited!”
Known for their tongue-in-cheek sense of humor and antics, Rockwell and crew decided to name their tour “Let’s Talk Industry” as an inside joke between friends.
“Everything in the punk scene these days seems all business, and bands would rather have a good t shirt design than a good song,” Rockwell adds. “They would rather ask us about our label or agent than about shows or music. I think that we are two bands that are super excited to just get out and play awesome shows and have fun and hang out with people. This tour is going to be a blast, so come hang out and eat food with all of us.”
Mixtapes continue touring in support of their debut full-length album, Even On The Worst Nights, although the band is already gearing up to hit the studio in March to record their follow-up. In a recent interview with PropertyofZack.com the Rockwell stated the band has already written twelve songs that they are “really, really excited about.” Read the hilarious conversation with PropertyofZack.com here: http://propertyofzack.com/post/43507698425/poz-interview-mixtapes.
