Paramore, New Found Glory, Tegan and Sara Tour
Florida's New Found Glory released their sixth full-length disc, Not Without a Fight, in 2009. Kadawatha's melodic rock is the product of Sri Lanka-born frontman Daniel Kadawatha's sensibility; he and his Swedish bandmates opened for Paramore in 2009. The Honda Civic Tour is thrilled to add these live acts to an already stellar lineup.
The Honda Civic Tour will visit 31 U.S. cities; additionally, Tegan and Sara, originally unable to perform July 27 in Wallingford, CT, will now be part of that HCT date.
The Honda Civic Tour (HCT) is giving excited fans, music lovers and everyone else under the summer sun a chance to win a Honda Civic Si Coupe customized and autographed by Paramore. This one-of-a-kind car will be on display at each stop of the nationwide Honda Civic Tour, which kicks off July 23 in Raleigh, NC. Beginning April 15, fans can enter to win this Honda ride of a lifetime by visiting www.HondaCivicTour.com. Attendees can also register to win at each stop of the tour.
The members of Paramore collaborated on their personalized Honda Civic Si Coupe, and the result is the ultimate in fan memorabilia. The vibrant, matte orange, maroon, and slightly blonde exterior features waves reminiscent of lead singer Hayley Williams' flowing hair; this effect, which required a half-mile of masking tape, was executed by Santini USA with House of Kolor paint. The airbrushed Paramore logo, surrounded by butterfly wings, graces the hood and runs the length of the Civic. It's surrounded by lyrics from their most recent album, brand new eyes, and the band members' autographs.
The array of bumper stickers adorning the customized Civic simulate Hayley's own car, and include custom-sketched caricature designs by Josh Farro, Paramore's lead guitarist, to resemble the band's faces. The 18" Lace wheels by Konig Wheels, custom powder-coated matte black, were a preference of bassist Jeremy Davis, along with the Toyo Tires Proxes 4 tires for ultra-high performance and functionality. The Civic Si was lowered two inches all around by KW Suspension/ST Suspension because the band wanted high style and the best driving experience possible. Finishing off the look are a Honda Factory Performance sport muffler, lower front spoiler, larger side skirts and a lower rear spoiler and red LED taillights, courtesy of Anzo USA.
Interior details include a wrapped steering wheel, shifter and e-brake handles evoking Hayley's microphone stand, and a collection of buttons on the sun visor much like those in Hayley's own car. A Mothers detailing kit is included to keep the interior fresh and the exterior looking shiny and smooth.
"Customizing this Honda Civic was an amazing experience," said Hayley. "What we ended up with is very us, and it expands on some of the imagery from brand new eyes. Best of all, whoever's driving can always have that hair-blowing-in-the-breeze feeling!"
