Jan 17th, 2007 AP ANNOUNCES “THE BANDS YOU NEED TO KNOW” TOUR PRESENTED BY ROCKSTAR ENERGY DRINK
CIRCA SURVIVE AND CUTE IS WHAT WE AIM FOR TO CO-HEADLINE
Alternative Press Magazine and Rockstar Energy Drink are proud to present the first-ever “Bands You Need To Know” tour, kicking off March 16, 2007, in Houston, Texas.
The AP Tour, in conjunction with the magazine's annual “100 Bands You Need To Know” special, is designed to showcase bands on the brink of big success paired with those who are just starting out. Every year, AP highlights 100 up-and-comers they think people need to take notice of. When these bands start making waves, AP is proud to say that their readers heard it from them first.
Co-headlining the six-week tour are pop-rock darlings Cute Is What We Aim For and atmospheric prog-punks Circa Survive. Cute Is What We Aim For have steadily gained momentum since their debut release last summer, The Same Old Blood Rush With A New Touch. The fresh-faced band—the members are barely out of high school--have found favor with a wide audience via their catchy sound and tongue-in-cheek lyrics, and the band recently crisscrossed the U.S. with Hellogoodbye. Circa Survive feature former members of underground hardcore staples Taken and This Day Forward, as well as former Saosin vocalist Anthony Green and have toured with everyone from My Chemical Romance to Dredg
Indie-rock upstarts As Tall As Lions from NYC and post-hardcore newcomers (and former AP&R unsigned band selection) Envy On The Coast will provide support on all dates. The unique blend of musical genres presented on the tour caters directly to AP's readers’ wide range of tastes and interests, providing them with a true “Must Know” experience.
The tour will play in 1,000- to 1,500-capacity venues that allow for a casual, one-of-a-kind environment, integrating music and a behind-the-scenes atmosphere for the ultimate fan experience before, during and after the show.

Check out this interview with Jeff of Blinded Black from the UK's Subba-Cultcha Dec 18th, 2006 PLAIN WHITE T’S TO LAUNCH EVERY SECOND COUNTS TOUR
RECENT MTVU “WOODIE” WINNERS HIT THE ROAD IN SUPPORT OF HOLLYWOOD RECORDS DEBUT EVERY SECOND COUNTS
PLAIN WHITE T’S JUST ADDED TO THE BAMBOOZLE FESTIVAL 2007
(BURBANK, CA) Hollywood breakout artists PLAIN WHITE T’S are hitting the road in support of much-buzzed-about new album EVERY SECOND COUNTS. The tour, which features openers Boys Night out, Lovedrug and for the first three weeks Mayday Parade with Dear and the Headlights taking Mayday’s spot for the remainder of the dates, kicks off March 4th in Green Bay, WI. The band has also just been added to The Bamboozle Festival 2007 happening on May 5th & 6th in East Rutherford, NJ.
The Chicago-based quintet (Tom Higgenson, Dave Tirio, Mike Retondo, De’Mar Hamilton and Tim Lopez) recently won mtvU’s coveted “Breaking Woodie,” a “Best Emerging Artist” category in which they were nominated alongside the Arctic Monkeys, Chamillionaire, Imogen Heap and Lupe Fiasco.
“Hey There Delilah,” the Chicago-based quintet’s hook-ridden hit was also nominated for the “Streaming Woodie,” a category honoring groups with the most downloads.
The Plain White T’s recently wrapped the Nintendo Fusion Tour with Hawthorne Heights and also opened dates for Panic! at the Disco, including two nights at Madison Square Garden in NYC.
The album is generating heavy buzz thanks to lead single “Hate (I Really Don’t Like You),” which is garnering major airplay alongside its companion video, which is in heavy rotation on MTV, MTV2, mtvU and Fuse. The T’s were recently spotlighted on MTV’s “Discover & Download” program and appeared on Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson. On December 22, the band will appear on Cartoon Network’s Fridays.
Catch the band live when they come to your town.
