Roadrage 2003 Is Go!
Posted on February 12, 2008Fasten your seatbelts!! Roadrunner Records are proud to announce the imminent departure of the RoadRage 2003 tour!
Following in the footsteps of last year's hugely successful package, featuring Killswitch Engage, 36 Crazyfists and Five Pointe 0, this year's bundle is bigger, better and just as bargainous, with a ticket costing just £9 regionally and £10 in London.
Strapping themselves in this year will be SPINESHANK, ILL NINO and CHIMAIRA. The tour begins here on 3rd October, then heads off around Europe before returning for a second bite of the UK at the end of the month.
SPINESHANK, have just released their third album, 'Self-Destructive Pattern'. These dates will compensate for the August shows the guys had to cancel following a family bereavement. Their appearance on the main stage at this year's Download Festival was a reminder of why their last album romped to over 50,000 sales in the UK. With a healthy start, this new album (KKKK – Kerrang! and 10/10 Powerplay) looks to emulate that success. Watch out for the video for first single, 'Smothered', (release date tbc) on a music channel near you.
ILL NINO are readying themselves for the release of their second album, 'Confession' on 29th September. The first single, 'How Can I Live' is also the lead track from the 'Freddy Vs Jason' movie soundtrack and is currently blowing up all over US radio. Look out for the video for 'How Can I Live', coming to Kerrang TV and Scuzz soon. This is the band's first trip back to the UK since the 'Revolution Revolucion' tour helped propel their debut album to sales of over 40,000 units.
CHIMAIRA, champions of the New Wave of American Heavy Metal, complete the bill in true metal style. Currently laying waste to crowds on the US Ozzfest, these guys are live favourites as illustrated by their incendiary set at this year's Download Festival - 5,000 kids all singing along to 'Pure Hatred'. Their album, 'The Impossibility of Reason' (KKKK – Kerrang, 8/10 Metal Hammer, 9/10 Rocksound) is in stores now. These guys come recommended by Slayer's Kerry King, so who are you to argue.
