We The Kings:
We the Kings is one of the latest up-and-coming pop punk bands to enter the mainstream, even with only two albums out. Over the past several years, We the Kings have been found on tour dates with some of the biggest names in pop punk and hardcore, including The Maine, Never Shout Never, and Mayday Parade. Fans are eagerly awaiting the release of We the Kings' latest album, Sunshine State of Mind
, on July 12. In the meantime, the band can be found on their summer concert schedule in 2011, including tour dates in Australia.
Guitarist and lead singer Travis Clark, guitarist Hunter Thomsen, his younger brother and bassist Drew, and drummer Danny Duncan had all been friends since they were kids. In 2003, they decided to form a band and began posting tracks on Purevolume four years later. In no time at all, We the Kings released their eponymous album which contained the hit, breakout single, "Check Yes Juliet." This led to major tour dates in support of bands like Boys Like Girls and Cobra Starship, in addition to performing on the 2008 Warped Tour.
We the Kings released Smile Kid
in 2009, which was praised for its broadening of the band's sound. The album did well on the charts and launched We the Kings into the next echelon of fame. They played tour dates on the 2009 Bamboozle Roadshow Tour
, which was followed by their first headlining tour dates on the Hot Topic Presents: Take Action Tour
. We the Kings continued to headline tours, including dates with I See Stars and their friends The Maine and Never Shout Never.
We the Kings are heading out on more headlining tours this summer on their 2011 concert schedule. Beginning on July 7, We the Kings will embark on a number of tour dates throughout the US, including mall concerts and appearances at Six Flags theme parks. They will be supported by The Summer Set, The Downtown Fiction, Hot Chelle Rae, and Action Item before heading to Australia on August 27. We the Kings will only play five tour dates in Australia before their 2011 concert schedule ends on September 1, so buy your tickets today!
Kyle Even and David Schmitt of Breathe Carolina
are putting the rock back in electronic music. The Denver duo rose to fame thanks to GarageBand software and MySpace that have promoted their unique blending of modern rock and a variety of synthesizers, and even a keytar. After only four years as Breathe Carolina
, the duo is already headlining huge tour dates and their 2009 album, Hello Fascination, shot to the top of the dance charts. Fans who enjoyed the aforementioned album are overwrought over the recent release of Breathe Carolina
's third album, Hell Is What You Make It
. In honor of the record's release, Breathe Carolina
is embarking on summer tour dates in 2011 with special guests, Scream It Like You Mean It.
David Schmitt and Kyle Even knew each other from separate bands that often played together in Colorado. After their respective band broke up, the two formed their own band in 2007 and began tinkering with music on GarageBand. The songs eventually gained fantastical plays on MySpace and Breathe Carolina
began playing local tour dates. GarageBand also played a pivotal role in recording their debut studio album, It's Classy, Not Classic
, which shot to #5 on the dance charts and #6 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart.
The album brought Breathe Carolina
their first headlining tour dates, which continued up until recording began for their second album, Hello Fascination
. The record performed even better on the Billboard
charts and was even more well received by fans and critics. This led to an even busier concert schedule that included tour dates on the Warped Tour and performances on talk shows like The Jay Leno Show
. Breathe Carolina
's latest record, Hell Is What You Make It
, has shown an evolution and maturity of the band; much to the delight of fans and audiences. The lead single, "Blackout", has already caused a stir thanks to MTV and fans are looking forward to the upcoming tour dates in 2011.
's upcoming North American tour dates in 2011 -- featuring Scream It Like You Mean It -- begin on July 15 in Seattle and will head South to circle around the edge of the US and Canada. The concert schedule will last roughly two months, with 2011 tour dates ending on August 26 in Breathe Carolina
's hometown of Colorado. Don't miss this opportunity to catch these rising stars on their 2011 tour dates and buy your tickets on Eventful today.
The Ready Set:
Why should you check out The Ready Set
? Why shouldn't you is a better question. Jordan Witzigreuter has got everything going for him. He isn't just a cute face in the scene - he creates ridiculously infectious dance beats with catchy melodies that will be stuck in your head all day long. And that's not all - he is one of the hardest working musicians out there. Fresh out of high school, this 18-year-older drummer, singer, and keyboardist extraordinaire is sure to catch the attention of fans across the country - and the world - with his dedication to his music and his guerrilla-style marketing of his music.
Witzigreuter's voice could be lightly compared to that of Bryce Avary's, as well as his songwriting tendencies. The Ready Set
meld electronic beats and synths along with clever and catchy lyrics that are just as catchy as thought provoking; they really have a way of telling a story. The best thing about these lyrics is they don't dwell on negativity - they are almost always very positive and upbeat, which leads to a very feel good album.
