THE EASTPAK ANTIDOTE TOUR 2011 Tickets
Tickets for the newly added Leeds Academy gig will be available on Aloud.com from 9AM on FRIDAY September 9th
The 2011 line up for one of the must see highlights of the rock calendar is headlined by A DAY TO REMEMBER.
This seventh and final edition testifies to the EASTPAK Antidote Tour's unique place in the punk rock scene in Europe. The line-up signals a clear declaration of intent on the part of organizers, The Agency Group and EASTPAK, to go out with a bang with blockbuster signings along the lines of A Day To Remember, August Burns Red, The Ghost Inside and Living With Lions. Prepare to be rocked to your core this autumn!
Since their Victory Records signing in 2006, Ocala, Florida's A DAY TO REMEMBER have released three albums, sold out entire continental tours and topped Billboard charts around the globe. The band is built upon a drive to reinvent a genre "on the cusp of a new revolution". Their fourth studio album, What Separates Me From You, expands the band's ever-widening spectrum and is set to be the triumphant next step in their already shining career. Hitting harder and bouncing bigger than ever before at EAT 2011!
AUGUST BURNS RED's 2009 breakout album, Constellations landed the metal juggernauts at #24 on the Billboard 200. Since then, the Lancaster, Pennsylvania-based genre giants have found themselves crisscrossing the globe on the road to the top of the hard rock heap. When it came time to record their fourth full-length album, Leveler, ABR could have played it safe, could have simply cashed in on their previous success by making Constellations II. Instead, after eight years and a quarter of a million albums sold, they scrapped the old game plan and followed their sound where it led them. The breathtaking result is nothing short of a game-changer.
THE GHOST INSIDE launched their own unique brand of aggressive yet melodic metal/hardcore in the spring of 2007 with their debut album Fury And The Fallen Ones. Two incredibly intense years on the road not only earned the fledgling band a solid reputation on the scene but also lead to recording their follow-up album Returners. This genuine tour de force not only succeeds in transcending genres but crushes them and everything else in its path. If you are yet to see The Ghost Inside, you owe it to yourself to drop whatever you are doing right now and get on this band's wagon!
Fresh from the release of their much anticipated second full-length album "Holy Shit", LIVING WITH LIONS is more than just a support act to EAT 2011. There is definitely something tangibly different about this Vancouver-based band and fans and newcomers alike will be treated to some trademark dynamics and a fresh, almost anthem-esque sound. In many ways, "Holy Shit"touches on all the hallmarks of good punk rock - angst, frustration, regret, longing and triumph - while staying true to the band's identity.
