Tickets have gone on sale for the Kerrang! Tour 2015 which will stop off in Manchester on 14th February 2015 at the Academy.
The first bands announced are headliners Don Broco and main support We Are The In Crowd.
Headliners Don Broco have been dubbed the bright, brute new force in British rock and have sold out numerous UK tours whilst scooping a number of awards including Best New Rock Act by i-Tunes and receiving a Kerrang! Award nomination. On top of this they hit the top of the rock charts with their debut album, Priorities, appeared on the main stage at Reading & Leeds Festival.
Clearly delighted to be headlining, they commented ‘We are absolutely gagging for this tour to come about already! Off the back of Reading and Leeds we couldn’t be more psyched to play shows again, it feels mental that we haven’t done a headline tour in almost a year! We’ve been busy writing our new album and can’t wait to unleash these new songs for the first time, plus it’s going to be amazing having the WATIC guys along. We’ve got to see them play at various festivals over the last few years and they totally kill it, will be awesome to get to watch em every night! It’s a massive honour for us to be headlining a tour we’ve seen so many of our heroes play when we’ve been there as punters, so to be looking out from on stage this time will be an incredible feeling. That, plus the possibility of a hot and steamy tour romance between Tay and I is going to make for compulsive viewing.’
We Are The In Crowd have been named as the lead support for the tour. The New York quintet (Tay Jardine on vocals; Jordan Eckes on guitar and vocals; Cameron Hurley on guitar; Mike Ferri on bass and Rob Chianelli on drums) formed in 2009 and released their debut album Best Intentions in 2011 following it up with outstanding album Weird Kids earlier this year, which created quite a buzz about them. “We cannot wait for the Kerrang Tour!” said Tay “The magazine’s always supported us and we’re stoked to be part of it. The bill’s an exciting one too! Hopefully there’s something for everyone. Let’s get weird!”
