BOYS OF SUMMER TOUR RETURNS IN 2013!
Everyone’s favourite summer tour is back and it’s bigger and better than ever. In 2013 Destroy All Lines is bringing back Boys Of Summer with a line up that will definitely get moshpits moving and the party started.
The line up that is going to get things moving features the notorious Deez Nuts, Canadian hardcore legends Comeback Kid, San Francisco’s First Blood and Sydney’s own Hand Of Mercy and The Bride. Deez Nuts is the brainchild of JJ Peters, started after I Killed The Prom Queen originally split in 2008. Equally influenced by hardcore and hiphop, the brash combination has made Deez Nuts one of the most notorious bands in hardcore. The band has just finished up work on their third full-length. Arguably their most diverse work to date, the album was recorded earlier this year with Shane Frisby (Bury Your Dead, The Ghost Inside) and features Freddy Cricien (Madball), Sam Carter (Architects) and Jon Blake (On Broken Wings) among others. Keep an eye out for 'Bout It', due out this March. The first two singles from the forthcoming LP, "Band of Brothers" and "Shot After Shot", will be available early January to coincide with the shows. Since dropping their debut full-length Turn It Around back in 2003, Comeback Kid have been an undeniable staple of the hardcore community. From there they released the classic Wake The Dead, changed vocalists on Broadcasting and then released the brilliant Symptoms + Cures in 2010. This is a record that the band states is the pinnacle of their cumulative output: gang vocals, half-time bridges and tastefully placed breakdowns, all trademarks of the CBK sound. It’s a sound that is great on record and even better live.Formed in 2002, San Fran’s legendary First Blood set out to create straight-forward and crushing metal-edged hardcore with a pissed off and in-your-face message. 2010 saw First Blood release their highly-anticipated sophomore album Silence Is Betrayal and since then the band have been on the road peddling the 15 tracks of musical devastation and lyrical condemnation that have made them a band at the pinnacle of hardcore genre.
For Hand Of Mercy, it has been a long road to success. Having started out in 2007, the band has taken that long road, and the relentless touring and self-releasing their records have all been in the pursuit of perfecting their art. The end result is getting signed to UNFD and releasing their newest album Last Lights. It just goes to show, for those who work hard, on their own terms, success comes and every little bit of it is deserved.
Also joining this already huge package will be Western Sydney’s Metalcore overlords The Bride are using the Atticus Boys Of Summer 2013 to say goodbye to the stages of Australia. Having formed in 2006, The Bride cycled through lineup changes and releases before dropping 2011’s acclaimed President Road full length on UNFD. Having always toured as much as humanly possible over the years with the likes of Confession, Thy Art Is Murder, Deez Nuts and Wish For Wings, the band will bring their youthful edge and energetic take on heavy music to the Boys Of Summer proceedings for the final time, adding a chaotic spark to the lineup already featuring the aforementioned Deez Nuts, Comeback Kid, First Blood and Hand Of Mercy.In 2013, Boys Of Summer is set to show audiences across the country just what four bands at the top of their games can do. Be sure to catch the tour when I hits venues across the country this January.
