Eisley will go back on the road this October for an extensive nationwide tour as very special guests of Say Anything. The tour begins October 14th in Anaheim, CA, and runs through November 22nd where it concludes at the famed Troubadour in Los Angeles. Joining Say Anything and Eisley will be Vagrant Records’ Moneen. Miniature Tigers and Moving Mountains will also split duties as the support act.

The band — which is sisters Chauntelle DuPree (guitar), Sherri DuPree (vocals/guitar) and Stacy DuPree (vocals/piano), brother Weston DuPree (drums), and cousin Garron DuPree (bass) — will perform songs from their two Reprise Records releases, 2005’s Room Noises and 2007’s Combinations, as well as preview songs from the album they are currently recording at Rosewood Studios in their hometown of Tyler, Texas. The new album, due this winter, is Eisley’s debut for Sire Records, which the band signed with earlier this year.

Fans who attend the fall shows will be able to purchase a “tour-only” exclusive EP, entitled Fire Kites, which will feature selects of studio tracks from Eisley’s upcoming new album, as well as a cover of Eisley’s “Telescope Eyes” by Say Anything’s Max Bemis.

Fans and critics have fallen in love with Eisley’s unique brand of pensive, indie-pop-rock. Combinations was declared one of the best albums of the year by MSNBC, while Harp Magazine proclaimed that the band had “written some of the most captivating material of their career.” Over the years, Eisley have toured with Coldplay, Snow Patrol, The Fray, Brand New, Switchfoot, Taking Back Sunday and Mute Math.

HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.
