Why is this worthy of my time and money?:
In their last outing they brought you a diverse bill that featured No Age, Los Campesinos and Times New Viking. With a unique tour model and an eye for unexpected collaborations that often cross record label boundaries, Shred Yr Face return to the UK for round 2 of their highly successful series of knees-ups. This time round a hardcore line up of Rolo Tomassi, F**ked Up and The Bronx jump on board for a whistle stop tour that takes in some of the UK's best cities for live music.
With every band boasting a whole host of rare and exclusive merchandise from t-shirts to cassettes, if you're even remotely a fan of any of this motley lot then you don't need me to tell you why this tour is worth your time or your money. The most coveted piece of merchandise is the Shred 7", featuring one off recordings from all the bands involved that you won't find anywhere else.
There are also a number of interactive features accessible through the website including regular blog updates, photos and more youtube videos than you can shake a stick at. Save yourself the hassle of missing out and be a part of one of the more original and dynamic tours to develop in the changing climate of whatever the music industry is these days.
