We are barely into festival season, and already there are plenty of gigs/tours popping up for Autumn & Winter. However, this one has gotten us the most excited so far. Expire have literally just finished a European/UK tour (We saw them a week ago at The Meat Locker in Leeds), and they are already planning their next trip to our part of the world. The Milwaukee band clearly love it in out here. Either that or they have truly been bitten by the travel/touring bug. Whatever the reason, it is most welcome news, especially when the tour package that has been put together is as formidable as this.
Main support comes from Creep favourites Counterparts, who we crowned with our 'Best Album Of 2015' accolade. As you can expect, we are more than pumped to see the Canadian Melodic Hardcore outfit come to our country again, especially when their live energy and heaviness can surpass their recorded output. Landscapes represent the UK on the tour package, and it is great to see them getting picked up and noticed by some of the US Hardcore scene after releasing an extremely strong album in the shape of ‘Modern Earth’. Rounding out the bill, but as equally exciting as any of the other three bands, is Knocked Loose from Oldham County, Kentucky. A very young, but extremely savage and dirty Hardcore outfit. Expect there to be some potential deaths during their set…
This powerhouse of a tour starts in Prague on the 23rd of November, and winds its way through Austria, Switzerland, The Netherlands, Germany, Belgium and the UK. Below are the UK dates of the tour, but check in with Avocado Booking here for the whole set of tour dates. This tour looks set to fire up your Winter, don't sleep!!
