JUNE Gears Up For The Victory Tour Joining BAYSIDE and Others for National Trek

“[Make It Blur] is the kind of magical set that wills you to play it time and time again before you come close to exhausting all its possibilities. Fabulous.” – All Music Guide

“Between the production polish and the promise of a departure into more seasoned rock terrotory, June’s sophomore effort seems awfully safe on paper. But thanks to its airtight execution, Make It Blur consistently counts for more then the sum of its parts… Crushworthy!” – Alternative Press

“June has spawned a new sound, one that deviates from the norm of today’s rough around the edges emo rock.” – Outburn

Currently preparing for almost six weeks of solid touring as one of the marquee acts on The Victory Tour, Chi-town’s JUNE have been taking their infectiously-melodic-laden-indie rock on the road for the Summer in support of their latest Victory album Make It Blur. Just days away from the kick-off date of Oct. 25th in Baltimore, Maryland, June will be traipsing across the US with labelmates (and fellow Reybee clients) Bayside and The Sleeping, A Day to Remember, and Driverside Impact. (tour dates below)

Make It Blur is a marked departure from the band’s debut album, 2005’s If You Speak Any Faster. With Marc McClusky (Hit the Lights, Powerspace) in the producer’s chair, the band set out to create their opus, the album they’d be incredibly proud of. And Make It Blur is just that – an album they’re incredibly proud of. From the orchestral oomph of the opening track “No Time For Sense” to the acoustic-led intricate guitar work of “Finally” to the piano-laden pop gem “I’d Lose Myself”, Make It Blur is an album that bypasses transition and lands them in the winner’s seat. With each of the 12 tracks a standout, June has created a cohesive album that shows incredible growth and truly presents the band as seasoned musicians not afraid to show their really tight melodic edge while demonstrating their musical chops at the same time. “We definitely drew from our influences much more on this record,” says drummer Mark Sutor. “It has a lot more of a pop feel. Influences range from Maroon 5, Third Eye Blind, Foo Fighters, Justin Timberlake, etc. I think the fans are going to love the songs because I feel like we have matured a lot more in-between the last record and this one.”

Make It Blur is the sound of a band on the verge of hugeness… With this album, their potential to break through in a big way isn’t blurry… It’s crystal clear.
