Fast rising Columbus, OH metal/hardcore 5-piece Like Moths To Flames will headline the 2013 edition of the Rise Records Tour, which kicks off April 19 in Syracuse, NY and runs through May 4 with a show in Barrington, IL. Texas chart-toppers Crown The Empire will be offering direct support, with Illinois rockers The Color Morale, New Jersey post-hardcore upstarts Palisades and Ohio hardcore outfit My Ticket Home rounding out the bill.
LMTF frontman Chris Roetter says, “We haven’t had much of a chance to headline since our album “When We Don’t Exist” was released. Rise Records has a history of signing great bands, so I’m glad that we can team up with some of recent standouts to make this tour happen. It will be great to see a lineup of young bands hit the road together. Very stoked to have the opportunity and hope to see you at one of the shows.”
Soon to be seen as direct support on Silverstein’s 2013 This is How the Wind Shifts North American Tour, Like Moths To Flames wrapped up 2012 with a stint on the AP Tour alongside Miss May I, The Ghost Inside, The Amity Affliction and Glass Cloud. The band has also shared stages with the likes of D.R.U.G.S., The Word Alive and Texas in July and is confirmed for the entire Vans Warped Tour this summer.
Tickets for the Rise Records Tour 2013 go on sale on this Monday, January 21. Ticketless VIP packages will also be available through www.ampedandalive.com, starting Monday, which includes admission to pre-show pizza parties with all of the Rise bands.
