THE NUMBER 12 LOOKS LIKE YOU has added select headlining dates surrounding the upcoming â€˜Heads Will Rollâ€™ tour with Protest The Hero, Misery Signals and Scale The Summit. The band sets off for Fort Wayne, Indiana next week for the first of three headlining shows leading up to the HWR tour kickoff in Denver. A headlining tour of Canada will be announced shortly. See all dates below.
The Number 12 released their fourth full-length, Worse Than Alone, on Eyeball Records last month and just returned home from their spring headlining run that was their first without singer Justin Pedrick. The band issued the following statement:
“5 blown trailer tires, devious strippers, body slams, pneumonia, ravaged equipment, psychedelics, and a lost singer are only some of the things that we encountered on this past tour. It was an incredible time! We would like to thank those who came out to the shows and shared these unpredictable moments.”
“Weâ€™ve seen a number of posts and comments wondering about Justin, and we are sad to announce that Justin is no longer with us due to personal issues related to depression and anxiety. It is unfortunate that he will not be part of whatâ€™s to come, but his health comes first and we wish him the best of luck. The #12 has always maintained a positive outlook, one that feeds off the support of our fans. We will continue playing and writing music for the wonderful fan base we have. Those of you that saw us on this last tour can vouch that we still killed it on stage like always. This will only get better as we tighten the loose ends. Come sing along as we tear it up with Protest The Hero and beyond. The Canadian border patrol better double check us because we are looking to rock and party harder than ever! See you all soon.” #12
The Number 12 has also been chosen as one of Dennyâ€™s â€œAdopt-A-Bandâ€ acts for the spring. The band will be appearing at select Dennyâ€™s restaurants after shows along the Heads Will Roll tour to hang with fans and eat some food. Parties will be announced soon and more details about the promotion can be found here: www.dennysallnighter.com.
The Number 12 Looks Like You is: Jesse Korman (vocals), Alexis Pareja (guitar), Chris Russell-Waker (bass), and Jon Karel (drums).
â€œOh, itâ€™s definitely Number twelve Time.â€ â€œ(Itâ€™s this) delicate balance of cacophony and tunefulness that makes this TNTLLYâ€™s best release to date.â€

â€œWorse than Alone stitches together spazzy math-thrash riffs, airy dream-pop vocals, and trance inducing rhythmic grooves with the confidence of kids who know that these days, cohesion is in the ear of the listener.â€
