Blessthefall Goes Back To Basics

Blessthefall’s hardcore screams will echo across Western North America this summer. Like Moths To FlamesGet Scared and Picturesque all join the headbangers on the trip.

The band has played with genre heavyweights As I Lay DyingAvenged SevenfoldBullet For My Valentine and August Burns Red over the past few years, but is now moving away from stadiums and arenas. The “Back To Basics Tour,” is the group’s effort to connect with fans in “sweaty, intimate venues” according to singer Beau Bokan.

Prior to the tour, the screamers will be playing  in Japan this June.
