“Last year we partnered up with House of Blues/Live Nation for our inaugural No Fear Music Tour. No Fear couldn’t be more pleased with the fan support and its over all success. We are looking forward to reaching out to our fans once again with this year’s No Fear Music Tour,” says Britt Galland, Vice President of Marketing for No Fear.
“We are thrilled to be working with No Fear again this year to utilize our unparalleled national network of clubs to bring the best emerging acts in hard rock to fans around the country,” said Live Nation’s Kelly Kapp, Vice President of Theater and Club Programming. “All of the bands on this bill are helping to define today’s metal scene. This tour is not to be missed.”
Bullet For My Valentine was named Kerrang’s “Best British Newcomer” in 2005, won Metal Hammer’s “Golden God Award in 2006, and graced the cover of Revolver magazine’s March 2008 issue, “The Future of Metal.” The band’s debut album “The Poison,” sold more than one-million copies worldwide and over 400,000 copies in the U.S. alone. In support of the band’s sophomore release “Scream Aim Fire,” released this past January, Bullet co-headlined the Taste of Chaos tour earlier this year.
Having been dubbed an “Artist To Watch” by Spin magazine, Bleeding Through was branded “The Future Of Metal” by Revolver magazine. Meanwhile the band has journeyed from Ozzfest 2004 and MTV2’s third annual “Headbanger’s Ball: The Tour” to a headlining run on the 2005’s “Strhess Tour,” as well as a spot on the world famous Warped Tour. Now the Orange County natives are gearing up for their only North American dates of 2008 and what promises to be one heaviest tours of the summer.
Cancer Bats are fresh off their latest worldwide release, Hail Destroyer, and a European tour and will be joining the tour in support for all July and August dates. Picking up where Cancer Bats left off is the much buzzed about youth of Black Tide, the Miami teens who have caught the eye of hard rock fans everywhere with their unique style of throw back black metal reminiscent of Black Sabbath and Dio, taking the supporting slot in August.
