Capitol Records rock quartet HURT has announced plans to open for hard-rockers' Seether on their upcoming tour beginning Nov. 24th at the House of Blues in Myrtle Beach, SC through Dec. 14th at Midnight Rodeo in Amarillo, TX (full schedule below). The news comes as Hurt wraps up their own headlining club tour in support their multi-faceted sophomore album Vol. II, which was released on Sep. 25th and entered the Billboard New Artist chart at #1. "Ten Ton Brick," the first single from Vol. II, is currently climbing the radio airplay charts where it is currently ranked #18 at Active Rock and #40 at Modern Rock.
Vol. II continues where its 2006 predecessor Vol. I, which spawned two top 20 active rock hits with "Rapture" and "Falls Apart" left off, furthering their signature post-grunge alt-metal sound with a melodic melding of aggression and frustration with soaring harmonies, quieter interludes and intelligent, affecting lyrics. The album was produced by Eric Greedy (Ringo Starr, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Barbra Streisand), who was also at the helm for Vol. 1.
Hurt is comprised of J. Loren (vocals, strings), Evan Johns (drums), Josh Ansley (bass), and Paul Spatola (guitars). You can check out some of their material on their MySpace page.
