NASCENT ROCKERS RAINS KICK OFF FIRST-EVER
HEADLINING TOUR; IN PARTNERSHIP WITH REVERB NATION, CONTEST GIVING LOCAL BANDS THE CHANCE TO
COMPETE FOR COVETED OPENING SLOT ESTABLISHED
SINGLE “LOOK IN MY EYES” CONTINUES TO RISE AT
ACTIVE ROCK RADIO

(New York, NY) – Nascent rockers Rains will kick off their first-ever headlining tour at The Ranch in Arlington, Texas on February 19th. In partnership with Reverb Nation, Rains is giving local bands the opportunity to compete for an opening slot on a tour date near them. The contest will be open to bands nationwide and slots will be available on all Rains headlining tour dates. This is an extension of last year’s ‘Great Tickets for Great Bands’ program in 2011, which allowed local bands to compete for an opportunity to get exclusive access at a Rains show with coveted side-stage viewing. For more information, please visit: www.rainsmusic.com. The Rains headlining tour will also feature 3 Pill Morning and Underride.
After wrapping up a massive trek with Five Finger Death Punch, All That Remains and Hatebreed last year, Rains is currently on the road with Black Stone Cherry and Cavo and is touring in support of their debut album, STORIES. The album contains the hit single, “Look In My Eyes.” After a Top 50 debut at Active Rock, the track continues to climb the chart with adds at WIIL/Chicago, WJJO/Madison and more and recently broke in to the Top 10 on Octane/Sirius/XM and iHeartRadio. Click here to check out the video for “Look In My Eyes” and see below for Rains tour dates.
Hailing from a small town in northern Indiana, lead singer/guitarist/band namesake Jeff Rains and company are making a name for themselves the old-fashioned way, with hard work and determination, winning over supporters one at a time with their poignant, emotive, melodic hard rock sound. In true DIY fashion, with no support from a traditional record label, the first single from their self-released debut album STORIES, “Liar,” cracked the Top 15 of Sirius/XM’s Octane channel, causing hard rock music fans to take notice. Of the band and their debut album, Alternative Revolt put it best, “Their music fills the void that we have lived with for so long. It is real, authentic. Above all, it rocks.” Rains is Jeff Rains (lead vocals/guitar), Jason Anderson (guitar/backing vocals), Matt Hopkins (bass) and Joe Schultz (drums).
