|FIT FOR A KING and THE OVERSEER announce co-headlining tour
Solid State Records buzz bands announce joint tour launching in the new year
Solid State Records labelmates FIT FOR A KING and THE OVERSEER are pleased to announce a co-headlining tour in the new year.
The rapidly emerging bands will hit the road this January and February, bringing their equally impressive live shows to fans on the West Coast, Midwest and Southwest.
“2012 was absolutely the best year in our band’s existence,” gushes OVERSEER bassist Bradley Riggs. “We got signed, put out our debut record and closed out the fall with an incredible full US tour with AUGUST BURNS RED. Looking forward to 2013, we’re all stoked to see what unfolds as we look to keep the momentum rolling!”
THE OVERSEER is touring in support of their 2012 debut, We Search, We Dig – a tour de force in melodic metal that garnered the Arkansas act praise from tastemaking publications. Revolver called We Search “Heavily textured metalcore that balances brutality with beauty.” Outburn declared “THE OVERSEER has burst onto the scene with a headturning and memorable debut,” calling the album “unpredictable, noisy metal.” “We felt like we had a very productive year in 2012,” says FIT FOR A KING vocalist Ryan Kirby. “I feel like we laid a lot of ground work for huge things to happen for us in 2013 and beyond and I’m looking forward to this tour as a part of kicking off the year.”
Joining their brothers in arms fresh off a string of dates with IMPENDING DOOM, the Texas based FIT FOR A KING signed with Solid State earlier this year on the strength of years of relentless touring and a well-received independently released album. The band’s anticipated Solid State debut is set to drop in 2013.
