As the summer season brings relentless touring, two of the more notable bands within the community have already set their sights for a productive fall touring schedule. Los Angeles’ Alternative Rock-Reggae outfit Tomorrows Bad Seeds, which is currently performing on all dates of the ongoing North American 2012 Vans Warped Tour, has teamed up with The Pier’s 2011 Breakout Artist of the Year, Through The Roots for a western states tour coming this fall.
Both Tomorrows Bad Seeds and Through The Roots are extremely familiar with each other, following up the Lei’d Back Tour in 2011 as supporting acts for Iration last fall. Now, with Tomorrows Bad Seeds releasing their third full-length album on June 12th titled, The Great Escape, the Southern California duo will share the aforementioned name for The Great Escape Tour 2012 with Tomorrows Bad Seeds headlining the tour. Dates will span from the kickoff in San Louis Obispo, CA, on September 13th with a week’s worth of dates in the Golden State before heading to the northwest and then the Rocky Mountains, before returning west for “Sin City” and the desert.
With fresh tracks and new lyrics to sing-a-long to at the shows, this will be Tomorrows Bad Seeds’ first opportunity for fans to receive a full-length set list with new favorites and past classics ringing through the venue’s walls, compared to the 30-minute time crunch of Warped Tour.
Through The Roots has also been working on new material in the studio after returning from a coast-to-coast tour with their San Diego counterparts Tribal Seeds. So, both bands’ fans alike will surely be in for a night to remember at each of The Great Escape Tour stops.
But from the bands’ perspective, they might be just as excited as the fans that await the tour, as Brady O’Rear (keyboardist) of Through The Roots explained, “We are very excited to be hitting the western half of the United States hard this fall and very blessed to be invited by our good homies, ‘The Bad Seeds’. We got crazy with them last fall on the Lei’d Back Tour so the RAGE is about to happen again!”
An awfully proper selling point to patrons coming out to shows, so do not miss the madness this fall on The Great Escape Tour!
