HourCast To Tour with 30 Seconds To Mars
After a successful series of live performances with Sevendust, Boston electronic rockers HourCast will join the red hot 30 Seconds To Mars on a nationwide U.S. tour for the duration of the summer. Newcomers on the hard rock scene, HourCast blend unique elements of computerized rock and heavy metal to create a unique and often somber sound on their debut album State Of Disgrace.
"We had no preconceptions as to what the band would sound like," says vocalist Patrick McBride. The members of HourCast – Mcbride, drummer Jerry Clews, guitarist David Henriquez and bassist David Sullivan - have combined their varied influences to incorporate the heavy flavor of Deftones and Tool with the dark electronic atmosphere of Nine Inch Nails and Depeche Mode.
"Freeze", the first single from State Of Disgrace , is accompanied by an innovative animated video that has already received play on MTV2's Headbanger's Ball and FUSE Oven Fresh. Hard Drive Radio, XM and Music Choice have all begun playing HourCast's music as well.
Not being signed to a label could serve as a liability to some bands, but not HourCast. "We didn't have a label telling us what to do and that allowed us to add variety and flavor to the album," says McBride. HourCast is a band looking to gain ground in the current music scene. "Myspace and live shows are definitely helping us to build a fan base," says McBride.
