Los Angeles, CA, January 23, 2012 – Ready to kick off the new year with a bang, Bremerton, WA-based alt-country/rockabilly band TUMBLEDOWN is heading out on a two-week West Coast tour. The foursome will team up with Drag The River for the start of the tour on February 10 in San Francisco, CA, through February 13 in San Diego, CA. TUMBLEDOWN will continue the tour on their own, ending on February 21 in Denver, CO.

With their sophomore release, EMPTY BOTTLE, already outselling their debut album in less than a year, two U.S. tours, a handful of West Coast runs, and tour dates in Japan, South America and Mexico, TUMBLEDOWN is ready to release their second single, “Great Big World,” which will be serviced to radio this week. Making a name for themselves from their endless touring schedule, frontman Mike Herrera describes the single, “I’d like to write a verse about every place I’ve ever been, and this is a pretty good start. I gotta put one foot in front of the other because we got a long way to go, and we’ll be passing through your town to get there.”

TUMBLEDOWN‘s music takes that sepia-tinged image of Americana and sends it hurtling into the present, with the help of some punk-inflected riffs and pure rock & roll attitude. EMPTY BOTTLE, the band’s second release through Austin, Texas, indie label End Sounds, is proving to be a defining album for TUMBLEDOWN, a follow-up to their self-titled album released in 2009.

TUMBLEDOWN is vocalist and guitarist Mike Herrera, guitarist Jack Parker, standup bassist Marshall Trotland and drummer Harley Trotland. For news updates and a full tour itinerary, please visit: www.tumbledownhq.com.

Press Quotes:

Empty Bottle is rockabilly for a new era…its music is current, with closer ties to punk and the alt country of Lucero, Old 97s, and Hank William III’s alter-ego Assjack band.” – VINTAGE GUITAR MAGAZINE

Empty Bottle is a rollicking, rustic throwback to a dusty brand of country that has all but disappeared from today’s world.” – ALTERNATIVE PRESS MAGAZINE






Brian "Head" Welch

Love and Death and Resurrection

After an eight year hiatus, Love and Death return with 'Perfectly Preserved,' an eclectic and personal release for nu-metal icon and frontman Brian 'Head' Welch. Still at the heart of it all, the man with the dreads details his life in the spotlight after returning to Korn, the launch of a holistic recovery center, and his spearheading of an autobiographical documentary. As fresh as he's ever been at 50 years old, he's still got more to give.

Marching Onward

After being together for a quarter of a century, they've been called Illuminati, fundamentalists, and even fascists. Now, with their first new album in seven years, 'Marching Out of Babylon,' they're honed in more than ever, a steadfast and evolved version of themselves. Andrew Voigt digs a little deeper into the Swedish band's roots, uncovers the narratives on the new release, and finds out how a little playground spat brought the band together.
