When asked about joining the band and touring for the first time since leaving Cerebral Bore, Simone stated: “It’s been awhile since I’ve been on the road as well as onstage, it’s time for me to climb back on that horse. Your Chance To Die is a great band, the people and the music, but unfortunately their vocalist Missy couldn’t make it for this one tour, so she hit me up to see if I would be interested. I honestly couldn’t have wished for better people to work with. They’re a real family and it’s an honor to be part of Your Chance To Die for these upcoming 2 weeks in August.”
Comments vocalist Missi Avila: “It's hard for me to have to give up the reins on this tour, but circumstances beyond my control have prevented me from being able to be a part of the tour this time. I am so thankful that Som has stepped up and agreed to do this tour for me. She is an incredible artist and has become a great friend as well. I know she will go above and beyond expectations and this will be an amazing tour for the band, as well as a chance for her fans to see her again.” More...
