Sick of It All Heading West
The tour is in support of the NYC hardcore pioneers' new album Based On A True Story, which landed a five star review here at antiMusic.
Lou (vocals) states: "We are very excited to get back on the road. Especially to be getting back to the West Coast. It's been too long. We have a lot of friends and fans that have been waiting patiently for us to come back. Well that was until the new album came out. Then the e-mails and messages were more like 'you can't make an album like this and not come out here to play them live' and we totally agree. We can't wait to get out there and sweat it out with everyone. The new set we've put together has a great flow. Hits you hard and keeps going and will have you singing along from start to finish. It's a great mix of old and new songs so start brushing up on those lyrics. I don't think anyone will be disappointed. See you in the pit."
Armand (drums) further comments: "We just announced a West Coast tour and are psyched to be coming out again to play some of our favorite cities in America - places that have never lost their passion for hardcore and have kept it alive and kicking. Places like Seattle, San Francisco, LA, Santa Barbara, San Diego, as well as new budding scenes like in Victorville. With the awesome support package of Alpha and Omega, 50 Lions and Trash Talk, these shows promise to be something really special. We'll be mixing it up, playing songs from every stage of our career and showcasing some brand new songs from "Based on a True Story," our new release which we're all very proud of. It's been too long since we've been out west, and hopefully we can make this a more common occurrence."
