Cinematics, the debut, full-length album from Tampa, FL's Set It Off is now available in stores and online. The band also announces their first ever international tour dates. In February 2013, Set It Off will head overseas where they will support Yellowcard on a full UK/European tour.
Set It Off is currently on tour with There For Tomorrow and will next hit the road with Sparks The Rescue, for a full-US tour this winter. All upcoming tour dates can be seen below.
Set It Off is also in the midst of their own campaign to raise awareness and donate funds to VH1 Save The Music Foundation. For every copy of Cinematics sold in the US, leading up to and during the first week of the album’s release, Set It Off will donate one dollar to VH1 Save The Music Foundation. If they reach their goal of hitting No. 1 on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart, Set It Off will also add a bonus, to create a total of $5000, and Equal Vision Records will match the band’s donation, doubling the amount going to VH1 Save the Music Foundation for a grand total of $10,000.
The VH1 Save The Music Foundation is a nonprofit organization dedicated to restoring instrumental music education programs in America’s public schools, and raising awareness about the importance of music as part of each child’s complete education. To date, VH1 Save The Music has provided more than $48 million in new musical instruments to 1,800 public schools in more than 100 cities around the country, impacting the lives of over 1.8 million children.
In addition to the standard version of Cinematics, a deluxe version is also available online. The deluxe version features three extra songs: “Swan Song (acoustic)”, “I’ll Sleep When I’m Dead (acoustic)” and the demo of a new song called “You Are Loved", which is available on iTunes, Amazon and other digital retailers. PureVolume.com premiered "You Are Loved" last week, as part of National Suicide Prevention Week - a topic the band is highly passionate about, and a subject that inspired the song itself.
Physical copies of Cinematics are available via the band's < a href="http://setitoff.merchnow.com"target="_blank">MerchNOW webstore, HotTopic.com, and at FYE and independent music stores.
Set It Off will also be doing a special in-store performance and meet and greet in Long Island, NY at Looney Tunes (31 Brookvale Ave, West Babylon, NY 11704) @ 7pm.
