Middle Class Rut Announce Fall Tour with Awolnation!

Sacramento-based rock duo Middle Class Rut has announced a run of November tour dates supporting AWOLNATION. The guys are currently on their own headlining tour making their way up the West coast with performances in KROQ’s Epicenter, KFMA’s Fall Ball, and a show at the famed Emo’s in Austin coming down the pipe. Then, beginning November 2, MC Rut will hit the road supporting AWOLNATION as they make their way back across the country hitting the Midwest and East Coast with stops in Los Angeles, New York City, and Philadelphia.

Middle Class Rut are touring in support of their debut album, No Name No Color, which spawned the smash radio hit “New Low” reaching No. 5 at Alternative Radio. Their current single, “Busy Bein’ Born” has also been climbing the charts and is now officially in the Top 25 at radio. Having being named a “2011 Artist to Watch” by MTV and scoring a coveted spot in USA Today’s “On the Verge” feature, the band are one of the most promising acts of the year. They recently wrapped up a European arena tour with Linkin Park and just completed their month long trek with on the Vans Warped Tour.

MC Rut has been eagerly embraced by rock fans and the press for their stunning debut, which artfully blurs the line between heavy and melodic music with raw, energized rock n’ roll. And this band is no overnight sensation: the duo, Zack Lopez (vocals, guitar) and Sean Stockham (drums), have been playing together since they were teenagers. The pair records every song they write together almost immediately upon coming up with the idea in their rehearsal space, capturing the instantaneous spirit of their songs while still in “the moment.” They’ve toured with a range of artists, including Linkin Park, Social Distortion, Alice in Chains, Them Crooked Vultures, The Bronx, …Trail Of Dead and their track “Lifelong Dayshift” is featured on the exclusive GameStop release of the Transformers: Dark of the Moon soundtrack.
