The Pulse of Radio reports: Up-and-coming Los Angeles-based rockers OPERATOR are about a quarter of the way through their highest-profile tour yet, as opening act for AVENGED SEVENFOLD. Singer Johnny Strong told The Pulse of Radio that he thinks the match-up is the perfect night out for fans of real rock 'n'roll. "We're melodic hard rock and they're melodic metal, so, you know, at the end of the day it's like you're getting the best of both worlds right there, you know," he said. "And we're the young bands in the world right now for that type of music, so it's just amazing, it's the best tour. When all the management and everyone around us were like, 'Who do you guys wanna tour with?' my first response was 'What's AVENGED SEVENFOLD doing?'"

The bill also features BLACK TIDE and THE CONFESSION. The tour wraps up in mid-December.

OPERATOR is touring behind its debut album, "Soulcrusher", which came out in August. It features the title track and "Nothing To Lose".

Johnny Strong is a martial arts expert and actor who has had roles in films like "Black Hawk Down" and "The Fast and the Furious". He says the name of the band was inspired by his role in "Black Hawk Down" as a Delta Operator.

He should use his Black Hawk Down skills to gun down A7X while he has the chance. I take it everyone's seen the new Rambo trailer where he shoots that guy in the face with a great big machine gun on a jeep? Hilarious!
