“We are honored to be chosen as headliners of the Fearless Friends Tour 2011,” notes blessthefall singer Beau Bokan. “All the other bands on the tour are awesome and fans are going to be in for a treat. We’re also super excited to play you all songs off of our new album Awakening. We’ll see you in the fall… let’s party (clothing optional)!”
blessthefall‘s third album, Awakening, is set for release on October 4th, 2011. The band, which also includes lead guitarist Eric Lambert, drummer Matt Traynor, bassist/screamer Jared Warth and new rhythm guitarist Elliott Gruenberg (formerly with Before Their Eyes), formed in Phoenix, AZ in 2003.
