Unlike most tours whose tickets include service charges, handling fees, and parking costs, the upcoming “Virtual Tour” for THE COLOR FRED will be accessible through the internet with no fees whatsoever! In support of the upcoming THE INTERVENTION EP which hits stores on April 18th, this “virtual tour” consists of five exclusive and very intimate acoustic performances by singer/songwriter Fred Mascherino that are spread out on five different websites and portals. AltPress.com, MySpace, AOL, Peta2 and Shockhound will debut one video each on Monday, April 12th. To see the whole tour, fans will need to visit each of the five sites and view the videos.

Set for release on “National Record Store Day” (Saturday, April 18th), this EP was recorded specifically for this year’s event. “I want to remind everyone out there that independent record stores still exist,” Fred explains. “[The Intervention EP] won’t be available at Best Buy, Target, or any of the major retailers. It’ll only be available at indie retail stores. It’s my way of supporting indie stores since they’ve always supported me.” (a list of stores is available on the band’s MySpace page). The Color Fred will be celebrating the release with an in-store at Vintage Vinyl (51 Lafayette Rd., Fords, NJ 08863) at 1:00pm on April 18th.

The “tour” begins at the band’s MySpace page at www.myspace.com/thecolorfred. The corresponding blog on the page will offer a “road map” with links to the different “stops” on the tour. The participating sites and videos will be:
Myspace: “Intervention” (www.myspace.com/thecolorfred)
AltPress.com: “Complaintor” (www.altpress.com)
Shockhound: “Terrible Things” (shockhound.com)
PETA2: “Dark Clouds” (peta2.com)
AOL’s “Spinner”: “If I Surrender” (spinner.com)

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!

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
