Charlotte, NCís HRVRD will venture west this fall, on a month long run that will bring them from coast to coast, sharing stages with various hometown favorites in each city.
On the tour, HRVRD will be performing songs off of The Inevitable and I, as well as select songs off of the bandís forthcoming full-length album.
The new album was recorded at Salad Days Studios in Baltimore, MD with producer Brian McTernan (Circa Survive, Senses Fail) and is expected to be released in early 2013. It will be HRVRDís Equal Vision Records debut, released in partnership with Enjoy The Ride Records.
Guitarist Jason Shaw says of the upcoming tour, ďWe have been waiting for a long time to have the means and ability to tour to the West Coast and we are beyond excited that itís finally happening. Thank you to everyone who reached out to help make this tour happen. We adore playing music and canít wait to share our live experience in places weíve never been and with people who have never had the chance to see us before.Ē
HRVRDís haunting sound blends intricate and cinematic guitar riffs with dark, passionate lyrics and powerful, driving rhythms. Effortlessly encompassing the impressive technical qualities of underground progressive-rock and experimental outfits, while remaining accessible through honest, relatable lyrics, the fusion creates a full-bodied, dreamlike ambience filled with catchy, yet sonically sinister melodies.
The band has shared the stage with the likes of Minus The Bear, Glassjaw, Cursive, The Felix Culpa, Eisley and more. A video of the band performing at Legendary Dobbís in Philadelphia, from their recent East Coast tour can be found HERE.
HRVRD is comprised of vocalist Jesse Clasen, guitarists Jason Shaw and Lee Herrera, bassist Garrett Leister, and drummer Tim Cossor. All upcoming tour dates can be seen below.
