ROCKSTAR TASTE OF CHAOS feat. THE USED + RISE AGAINST + AIDEN + THE BLACKOUT + GALLOWS + CAMPUS
The ROCKSTAR TASTE OF CHAOS tour that first struck Europe last year will be returning to the AB again this year. This time boasting names like THE USED, RISE AGAINST, AIDEN, ESCAPE THE FATE and GALLOWS.
The most recent THE USED album titled 'Lies For The Liars' is again an exciting leap forward for this foursome from Utah. Singer Bert McCracken rebels textually against all that is sacred and musically the band is in top form again.
With the assistance of producer Bill Stevenson (Black Flag, Descendents), RISE AGAINST from Chicago rewrites the punk-rock rules on his fourth studio album, The Sufferer & The Witness, admitting elements of spoken word and pop. This without losing the influences of 80's hardcore and 90's indie-rock.
The goth-punk of AIDEN been impressing for a while now. They recorded their debut almost from the school desks, after which they were promptly signed by the respected Victory label for their breakthrough album 'Nightmare Anatomy'. We expect their new album 'Conviction' by the end of the summer.
Signed to Epitaph Records, Las Vegas quintet ESCAPE THE FATE appeared out of nowhere this century with their impressive EP 'There's No Sympathy For The Dead'. In the meantime they're working their way up to the international top with their debut 'Dying Is Your Latest Fashion'.
The band creating the most expectations is the British GALLOWS. At the moment this punk/hardcore band is making furore with 'Orchestra Of Wolves' , which was just recently re-released by major label Warner (with an impressive Black Flag cover as extra). Singer Frank Carter & co received the following quote from NME 'Hardcore mentalists on the verge of true greatness'.
