Calgary’s pop-rock quartet KIROS will bring their infectious and inspirational melodic rock across the US when they head out on the “REDvolution! 2012” Tour next month.  Beginning in Rochester, MN on February 10th and wrapping up in Fort Wayne, IN on March 24th, KIROS will accompany influential modern rock acts RED, THOUSAND FOOT KRUTCH, MANAFEST and NINE LASHES on this exciting run.  “We are very excited and honored to share the stage with such prominent and established artists!  We’re also ecstatic to be releasing our new record while on this tour and have these crowds be the first to hear our new music!” says vocalist Barry MacKichan. A full list of dates can be seen below.

This will be KIROS‘ first US tour in support of the forthcoming Ain’t No Grave Records full length debut, Lay Your Weapons Down out on February 7th, 2012.  After the release of their 3-song EP, Outlaws and Prodigals in September, KIROS fans demanded the group give them more new music. “Unshaken” is the first single that was released from Lay Your Weapons Down and not only has it received a great response from fans and at Christian radio, but it is also featured as one of the free downloads on FUSE TV’s website and can be heard here.

Initially shunned by both believers and non-believers, they were fighting for their spot at the table, ultimately building a legacy that would go on to change the genre forever. HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.
