Long Island, NY hard rockers BLAMESHIFT are heading out on their first headline tour this fall with openers Dive! The Fortune and Flames Tour begins in Philadelphia, PA at Gunners Run on October 25th and runs through November 24th in Teaneck, NJ at Mexicali Blues. See below for all current tour dates.
The band recently completed work on a follow up to The Black Rose, also with Erik Ron, entitled Secrets. BLAMESHIFT recently shot a music video for the title track ‘Secrets’ at an 18th century mansion located in Kentucky with director Jon King. In the past, the mansion has been featured on the television show Ghost Hunters, where the cast discovered some rare paranormal activity!
“We’re really excited to be heading out on our first headline tour ever,” states guitarist Tim Barbour. “We’ll be performing new music from our upcoming album Secrets, coming out next year. We just filmed a new music video for the title track, so keep your eyes open for that, coming soon!”
BLAMESHIFT is currently running a contest at www.tellmeallyoursecrets.com where fans can submit their biggest secret in turn for the change to win a signed advance copy of the new CD and a band-autographed Schecter electric guitar! Plus, the winner will have their anonymous secret in the album artwork! One entry per person with valid email address!
Stay tuned for more information about the new album coming soon!
