Iwrestledabearonce Return To The Road In October As Direct Support For Of Mice And Men

Iwrestledabearonce return to the road in late October for a month of tour dates as direct support for Of Mice And Men. Prior to the tour–which kicks off October 26 at the Regency Ballroom in San Francisco and wraps November 29 at the Alter Bar in Pittsburgh–IWABO heads to Anchorage, Alaska for a pair of headlining shows on September 16 and 17.

The group’s new CD, Ruining It For Everybody, was released July 26 via Century Media Records. Critical praise for the disc continues to build, including Iann Robinson’s 9.5 (out of 10) star review for CraveOnline.com, which calls Ruining It For Everybody a “contender for Album of the Year.”

The review continues: “…Iwrestledabearonce have created a shimmering piece of artistic genius…Gloriously shining and seductive female vocals reach for the outer limits while screeching vocals of ugly defiance batter us back into reality. Beautiful piano and electronic sounds are kicked in the shins over and over by thick and brutal riffs…This isn’t just music, this is art, this is an impressionist painting mixed with a work by Dali that’s draped over the hand carved stone statue of a demon all backed by the sounds of angels singing…for those who burn every day with the desire to see heavy music take bold steps forward, I give you Iwrestledabearonce and their maddening genius bottled into a Molotov cocktail of audio complexity…”

Writing for Noisecreep.com, Amy Sciarretto concurs: “Thanks to IWABO’s unpredictable, refuse-to-adhere-to-any-genre-or-go-down-easy metallic bluster and electronic wizardry, you will feel like you stepped into a video game and a carnival house of horrors all in the space of a single song. Singer Krysta Cameron shrieks like she needs to be institutionalized, but also offers up an angelic, pretty vocal. She is not to be trusted; she will cozy up to you, only to boot you in the balls without any warning! That’s why we love her!”

Iwrestledabearonce–Krysta Cameron (vocals), Steven Bradley (guitar, keyboard, programming, samples), John Ganey (guitar, keyboard, programming, samples), Mike “Rickshaw” Martin (bass) and Mikey Montgomery (drums)–recently concluded a month of North American dates on The All Stars Tour with Emmure, Alesana, Born Of Osiris, Bless The Fall, and others.
