Take Action! Tour 09

(PR) Hopeless Records, through their non profit organization Sub City is pleased to once again organize and present the Take Action! Tour. The 2009 lineup will feature headliner Cute Is What We Aim For, along with Meg & Dia, Breathe Carolina, Every Avenue, and Anarbor.

The annual nationwide charity tour, now in its eighth year, raises funds and awareness for youth involvement in charitable action, and for the second straight year Take Action has chosen not-for-profit organization DoSomething.org to benefit from the funds raised and to help spread the message of action to young people across the country.

DoSomething.org is a national not-for-profit that believes that young people have the power to make a difference. They inspire, empower and celebrate a generation of doers: young people who recognize the need to do something, believe in their ability to get it done, and then take action.

DoSomething.org CEO Nancy Lublin says of the not-for-profit teaming up with Take Action! Tour: "Music has always moved generations. We're psyched to partner with Take Action! We believe that there is a lot of creativity and passion in generation Z (kids under age 25). Their idea of getting involved isn't writing a big check or attending a charity dinner--they actually do stuff."

Each Take Action tour stop is a unique experience where fans are exposed to a great show along with encouragement and information from the bands, charity partners, and sponsors about how they can get involved with causes that are important to them. In addition to the good time and inspiration, 10% of the ticket price from each ticket sold is donated to DoSomething.org, which makes each fan in attendance an active participant in financially supporting non profit action. To date Sub City, with the help of hundreds of thousands of young people, has raised over $550,000 through the Take Action initiative. The tour has previously featured many future stars including: The Plain White T's, The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, Paramore, Every Time I Die, Jimmy Eat World, Avenged Sevenfold, Hawthorne Heights, Chiodos, Thrice, Anti-Flag, Silverstein, Dillinger Escape Plan, and many more.

Tour dates and ticket information for the 2009 Take Action! Tour will be announced shortly along with information about the annual Take Action! compilation
