Poison The Well has announced a string of headlining dates to prepare for the release of their new full-length Versions. Joining them on this run is Long Island, NY's This Is Hell and experimental noise-core unit, The End. This is Poison The Well's first tour since last summer's STRHESS TOUR with Shadows Fall and first since recording their upcoming album for Ferret Music, Versions to be released this April. Speaking on the forthcoming trek drummer, Chris Hornbrook says "We're excited to hit the road and get a chance to shake our rust off and debut our new material to fans. We chose the opening bands based on their diversity of sound with ours and think kids will get a full package to enjoy." Joining members Hornbrook, Ryan Primack (guitar) and Jeffrey Moreira (vocals) will be their touring line-up of Mike MacIvor (formerly of Candiria) and Brad Clifford (of Since By Man).

Versions is the band's first release since 2003's You Come Before You on Atlantic Records, which sold over 130,000 copies in the U.S. Heading from their tropical home in Ft Lauderdale/Miami FL to Umea Sweden, the band recorded with the production team of Pelle Henricsson and Eskil Lovstro who recorded You Come Before You as well as classic albums by The Refused, Breach and others. Primack describes it as having many more colors and nuances than previous work. "The songs are pretty open ended and there's a lot of unique instrumentation in the background throughout such as Mandolins, slide guitar, horns and banjo." Primack who plays all of the unexpected instruments on the disc adds "this is not out of the blue, we actually started to add these elements to the last album but we didn't have time to flesh them out like with Versions. It's going to be a really different sounding album in hardcore, well as different as you can be in hardcore nowadays."
