CHIODOS – announce co-headline fall tour with MOTION CITY SOUNDTRACK

With frontman Craig Owens appearing on the latest cover of Alternative Press–for the second time in less than a year (October 2007, September 2008)–Flint, MI’s CHIODOS continue to gain momentum, almost a year after the release of their hugely successful second album BONE PALACE BALLET. Released in September 2007 on indie label Equal Vision Records, the album debuted at #5 on Billboard’s Top 200 Album Chart. Critical praise for their compelling post-hardcore music–from outlets, including New York Times, Blender, Billboard, Hollywood Reporter, Revolver, Village Voice and UK’s Kerrang! (see quotes below)–has helped bolster sales of the set to over 157,000 copies.

A mainstay on the road, with international appearances spanning clubs, arenas and major rock festivals, CHIODOS has announced their latest tour: a co-headlining fall U.S. trek with Motion City Soundtrack. Set to kick off September 22 in Louisville, KY, the band will bookend the tour with headlining shows across the continental U.S., Alaska and Mexico. Tickets for the tour go on sale to the public Friday, July 25, check www.myspace.com/chiodos for more information.

CHIODOS have also announced they will release a special edition of BONE PALACE BALLET due out this fall; the CD will include brand new songs and a 30-minute teaser of their upcoming concert DVD, title TBA, coming in early 2009.

HUNTER BURGAN of AFI discusses THE FORCE REUNION SHOWS in an Altpress.com exclusive

NorCal hardcore/punk band, The Force, is reuniting for the first time in 10 years! Singer Matt Wedgley (Viva Hate), bassist Hunter Burgan (AFI), guitarist Mark Roustabout (The Roustabouts) and the inimitable drummer Chad Cox went their separate ways after the band’s final show in 1998, each following his own path to personal and professional success.  

Hunter Burgan recently sat down exclusively with Altpress.com to discuss the reunion. Check it out at www.Altpress.com!

Direct link: http://altpress.com/features/184.htm

The Force will only be playing three shows, the first of which will be in their hometown of Grass Valley, CA (a small town in the Sierra Nevada foothills, between Sacramento and Reno) followed by a Bay Area concert and finally a Southern California stop. The dates are as follows: 

August 29, 2008 – Miner’s Foundry in Nevada City (Grass Valley), CA

August 30, 2008 – 924 Gilman St. in Berkeley, CA

August 31, 2008 – Chain Reaction in Anaheim, CA
