Bayside Tour in Support of The Walking Wounded

LONG ISLAND, NY – Victory recording artists Bayside have not slowed down one bit since the Spring 2007 release of their latest album The Walking Wounded. Currently crisscrossing the U.S. on the 2007 Vans Warped Tour, Anthony, Nick, Jack and Chris have been shredding the throng of fans that have been making their set one of the most well-attended performances on this year’s festival. And what better way to wind down one huge festival than to announce their headlining spot on another for The Victory Tour in the Fall (partial dates below… more to be announced shortly). “We are really excited to be headlining the Victory Tour this year,” says vocalist/guitarist Anthony Raneri. “One of our first big breaks was being a part of the Victory Tour in 2005 and then in the UK in 2006. So it is really amazing to be at a size where we can finally be the headliners and do for some other bands what those bands did for us in the past.”

With album sales over 60,000 and media attention galore from Rolling Stone to Conan O’Brien to Alternative Press to Outburn, it’s only logical for Bayside to be headlining this year’s Victory Tour. With labelmates The Sleeping, A Day to Remember, June, and Driverside Impact along for the ride, it couldn’t have been a better collection of bands. “All of the bands on the tour were picked by us, Tony [Brummel, Victory president] and the staff so it was a real group effort to come up with a line-up we were all stoked on,” he continues. “We couldn’t be happier about the way it turned out.”

Packed with melodic, energy-laden rockers like “Head on a Plate”, “Dear Your Holiness”, and “I and I”, The Walking Wounded is the record that Bayside needed to make… an album rife with the lessons learned, increasingly intricate and infectious music, and three steps forward in experience, precision and complexity. Orchestral at times while raucous and punk-infused in others, Bayside have pulled together their bombastic rhythm section, searing guitar work, and Raneri’s trademark note-jumping vocals. The first single “Duality” is the perfect example of the band’s musical synergy which is evident throughout the feverishly cohesive album’s twelve-tracks. As Rolling Stone concluded in its rave review of the album “If this is Wounded, Bayside will be scary when they reach full strength.”

Bayside is Anthony Raneri (guitars/vocals), Jack O’Shea (guitar), Christopher J. Guglielmo (drums) and Nick Ghanbarian (bass). The Walking Wounded was released on Victory Records earlier this year.
