FIRST SINGLE “YOU MAKE ME SICK” NOW STREAMING AT ALTPRESS.COM
FEBRUARY/MARCH TOUR ANNOUNCED WITH EVERY AVENUE, WE ARE THE IN CROWD


After departing from Victory Records in July of 2010, Chicago-based pop-punk bandTHE AUDITION is set to write their own history with the self-release of their brand new EP, titled Chapter II on February 14, 2011. Backed by an incredibly successfulKickstarter campaign which ended up raising almost $3,000 over their goal amount and the support of their fans around the world, Chapter II sees the band heading in a fresh direction and honing their signature sound into one that demonstrates a maturity and breadth evident in their earlier releases but not fully realized until now. The first single from the album, the catchy “You Make Me Sick” premieres today on Alternative Press‘ website, and can be heard here:http://www.altpress.com/features/entry/premiere_the_audition_you_make_me_sick.

The Audition is also set to hit the road with Every Avenueand We Are the In Crowd starting February 14th and running through the end of March (tour dates below). This marks the band’s first tour of the US since 2010, ending a hiatus that left their fans longing for a return to the road. The members of The Audition are equally excited to road-test the material from their new EP after two long years off from touring.
Formed in 2003 by drummer Ryan O’Connor and bassist Joe Lussa, The Audition signed with Victory Records and released their debut album, Controversy Loves Company in September 2005. By that point, the band’s line-up had come to include guitarists Seth Johnson and Timmy Klepek as well as vocalist Danny Stevens. Their 2008 sophomore effort, Champion, cracked theBillboard Top 200 at #157, and their 2009 release, Self Titled Album hit #7 on BillboardHeatseekers. After the release of their fourth album, Great Danger, and the fulfillment of their contractual obligation with Victory, the band began to write for what would become Chapter II. The Audition see this new EP as a second chapter to the career and legacy they want to leave behind.
