Fair to Midland To Tour with Chevelle, Open For Smashing Pumpkins

On July 15 and 16 at the Fillmore Theater in San Francisco, Fair to Midland will open for The Smashing Pumpkins at the first two shows of the Pumpkins' West Coast residency.

In addition to just releasing their first major label debut, Fables From a Mayfly: What I Say Three Times is True (Serjical Strike/Universal Republic), which debuted at #2 last week on Billboard's New Artist chart, Fair to Midland has also performed at this year's Coachella, Bamboozle, Rock Am Ring, Rock Im Park and Download festivals.

After they wrap up their current tour with Finnish band The 69 Eyes and some dates with Evans Blue, Fair to Midland will head to Europe for shows with Japan's Dir En Gray and gigs at Germany's Wacken and M'era Luna Festivals, and the Metal Hammer Festival in Poland. Upon their return, Fair to Midland will be kicking off over two months of touring as main support for Chevelle (from late August through October).

Fair to Midland is the greatest band in the world. They're stage performance is always captivating. The music is deeper than most of what is available today. The lyrics are stunning, the music is perfected, and Darroh's vocals are other-worldly. You will never hear another band like this in your lifetime. Come see them; you won't be dissapointed. www.myspace.com/fairtomidland - www.myspace.com/negative_amp
