Second Monster Energy Outbreak Tour Announced – Begins Oct 26th

Monster Energy and Idol Roc have announced the line-up and itinerary for the 2011 Monster Energy Outbreak Tour. Headliner Of Mice & Men will be joined by direct support act Iwrestledabearonce, I See Stars, That’s Outrageous! on the entire run. Abandon All Ships and For The Fallen Dreams will join the bill for half of the dates each. Tour Producer Steve Glazer (Idol Roc Entertainment) shared, “The Monster Energy OUTBREAK Tour returns this Fall to once again provide a premium touring platform that showcases the best new talent in Rock. Staying true to the inaugural trek, we’ve paired emerging talent with an affordable ticket to give fans the value and opportunity to discover the rock stars of tomorrow.”

From the origination of the Hardcore movement in the late 1970’s through today, the scene has been fueled by independent labels and the underground. The genre’s impact on metalcore, grunge, thrash, metal, emo, post-hardcore and other evolutions in sounds in indisputable. The structure of songwriting forever changed, dispelling the notion that repertoire needed to fall within the rigid confines of traditional verse-chorus rock. This package recalls the days of community bills where artists come together and create a collective event with the audience on hand, much like the matinees of the past. The future of the movement is defined by these bands and others, continuing to build upon the legacy created by Black Flag, Circle Jerks, the Dead Kennedy’s and countless others. Of Mice & Men vocalist Austin Carlile and drummer Valentino Arteaga collectively shared, “We’re very happy to announce Of Mice & Men headlining the Monster Energy Outbreak tour! We couldn’t be more excited to team up with such a phenomenal company and lineup of bands as well! We think this tour will be much more of an experience rather than just coming out to another show, so do not miss this tour!” Iwrestledabearonce vocalist Krysta Cameron shared, “We are looking forward to hitting the road this fall to support our Friends in Of Mice & Men on the Monster Energy Outbreak Tour, and to promote our latest release Ruining it for Everybody. This should be yet another exciting tour for us! We’ll be seein’ y’all Bear Brats soon! Don’t forget to bring a jacket!”
