SINCE OCTOBER is currently prepping for an upcoming US tour, which features several dates with RED, as they continue to promote their latest album, This Is My Heart (Tooth & Nail). The album is currently available in stores, as well as iTunes for $5.99! In addition to their tour dates with RED, SINCE OCTOBER also has a ton of other great shows coming up including WRZX’s May Day (with Disturbed, Shinedown, and Saving Abel) and a string of dates in June with the other rising stars of Active Rock - Burn Halo, Veer Union & Halestorm.
Singer Ben Graham commented on the band’s upcoming shows: “This is a really cool time for our band with all these shows coming up, and we’re extremely excited about the tour because we’ve got a bunch of east coast dates. We’ve played the west a lot, where we’ve been getting some great radio support, and it will be great to perform in front of crowds that haven’t seen us before. We take pride in our live stuff, because we come off even harder and better live than on a record. We’re not the kind of band that stands and sings. If you want to listen to the songs perfectly, stay home and listen to the records. If you want to see one energetic stage show, come out and see us!”
SINCE OCTOBER is making a splash on radio right now, holding down the #27 spot on the Active Rock charts, with no signs of stopping!
There are few who place honesty and vulnerability as their foremost virtues in artistry. After all, rock n' roll has been built on fantasies, imaginations, and the hype of cartoon-like demagogues. Yet, today, as the music industry itself searches for new voices, there seems to be a growing hunger among the public for something real, something beyond plastic personas and fake fluorescent skies. The music industry is crying out for an honest voice. SINCE OCTOBER has answered these cries with This Is My Heart.
Though this is the band’s first label release, these four Bradenton, Florida stalwarts are far from freshmen. They sold over 5,000 copies of an independent release prior to signing to Tooth & Nail, and have toured extensively during the two-year stretch that has led them up to this point. Having shared the stage with Seventh Day Slumber, Pillar, Disciple, and Underoath, they have played over 300 shows in the past 24 months.
