New Jersey's Toothgrinder released "Nocturnal Masquerade" earlier this year and now the band will embark on the biggest tour of its career so far, opening for Killswitch Engage, Memphis May Fire, and label mates 36 Crazyfists through March and April.
Needless to say, the band is stoked about the opportunity to join this trek. "Being massive fans of Killswitch Engage since their inception, it is completely mind-blowing that we have the opportunity to travel the country with them and our good friends in 36 Crazyfists," singer Justin Matthews enthused.
He goes on to say, "If you were to tell any of us a few years - or even months ago - that we would be on this tour, we would have laughed in your face. We have something cool to offer everyone coming to see the tour. Our style is melodic, technical, and simple all wrapped in one, something that seems to encompass this entire package. It's going to be a wild ride and we cannot wait to get the festivities started." More...
Following Otep dropping off the Civil Unrest tour after accusing a member of Terror Universal of sexual harrasment, Ill Nino has now issued the following statement about the tour going on without either group:
"Ill Nino does not condone any forced act of violence or sexual nature towards any human beings, nor will we tolerate violations of one's personal space.
"This also goes for cyber-bullying, or making demeaning comments towards ANYONE on social media. We strongly support equality for all.
"We would like to draw closure by stating that the Civil Unrest Tour will continue without participation from either Otep or Terror Universal. We're looking forward to hitting the road, reuniting with our fans and friends, and also sharing the stage with our tour brothers, and sisters, Kittie & 36 Crazyfists. Stay tuned, more bands to be added!!"
