  • ANTITHETICAL Becoming the Best 2013 National Release

    Portuguese extreme progressive metal merchants, Malevolence are gathering a strapping amount of awareness all over the place and the media are linking up with the surprisingly powerful return that Antithetical stands for. Setting the bar high for the future of extreme metal, the entire full-length is proving to be accepted as an extremely inventive and multifaceted aural epic.

    In Portugal, home Country of the band, the media are consistently catapulting the album as the Best National release of 2013. That alone speaks volumes and recently the biggest metal magazine from Portugal awarded Antithetical with the album of the month category. Against magazine acknowledged the album with a fat 10/10 and featured the band as their cover story.

    "Malevolence is one of the few bands that have crossed the extreme metal boundaries in 2013, with their bold new album “Antithetical”. As soon as we had the chance to listen to this masterpiece, we knew we had to prepare for war! For me, as a music lover, I really couldn’t ask for more and it was a great honor to catch up with vocalist Carlos Cariano to explore the evolution of the band and discover the inner story of their new album. When you have a band like Malevolence, who possess a refined sense of reinvention, it’s very hard to hold the excitement!" said Joel Costa (Editor).

    About:  Until Dawn’s intense energy, intoxicating guitar riffs along with their lively stage shows has shown that their location in the remote northern depths of Fort McMurray, Alberta will not slow them down. Mixing the sound of modern metal and classic rock, brothers Luke and Deke Worrell, with Adam MacLeod and Steve White have created a sound appealing to both young and old alike. This modern sound with a classic throwback was evident in their self-titled debut that was released in early 2011. Since that release, Until Dawn has enjoyed great success from their hard work and determination.

    Their hit single “Table and the Plastic” was on steady rotation at local Fort McMurray station Rock 97.9FM, which aided in strong support for the band’s very successful tour of Western Canada, which included festival performances and sharing the stage with such as acts as rock legends KISS, where they wowed the audience with their own brand of modern metal.

    The band released their sophomore album in 2013, building on their previous success and setting new plans to bring their music to larger audiences around the world. All in all, Until Dawn is melodic metal at its finest, and this is just the beginning.

    Radio Tracking – radiotrackingashermedia(@)gmail.com


    “stellar production job…In the future, expect to hear Until Dawn echoing through McMahon stadium when the Stampeders battle the RoughRiders. ” – Decibel Magazine


    “Blasting the listener with heavy riffs, melodic twin-leads, hammering double kicks, and vocals that flirt between tough-guy growls and smooth melodic crooning, Until Dawn can kick some serious arse, particularly when they fire all cylinders. The main reference point here is mid-period Killswitch Engage, but there is also a little of melodic sensibilities that make All That Remains so special in there, too. This is metalcore with emphasis on the metal, and despite the production problems, Until Dawn really go for the throat, with great riff work during “The Red Sun Rises This Day” and the arse kicking “Conjurer of Cheap Tricks”. With a good label behind them, and a decent producer, Until Dawn could possibly rise to the ranks among As I Lay Dying, All That Remains, and Unearth.” – Powerplay Mag UK

    Alberta’s Until Dawn have unleashed their impressive sophomore melodic death metal album Horizon. Containing thirteen tracks of driving tempos, diverse vocals and melodic guitar riffs, the band has grown and taken a huge step in progressing. This is a tight affair where the songwriting has been analyzed and every riff and melody is utilized to its full effect.

    At times the band adds metalcore influences into their sound like on single “This Fallen Fortress,” but their execution is infallible. The brilliance of adding the aggressive vocals behind the melodic lead vocal during the chorus is a nice touch. The guitar players add excellent melodic riffs that blend perfectly with the driving riffing. The arpeggiated guitar picking and clean vocals of “DNR” is a nice change of pace from the ongoing battering.” – About.com: Heavy Metal - Drago’s Dungeon: July 2013 - The Month’s Best Unsigned Metal Bands

    “”With brutal riffs, breakdowns as they should be done, excellent vocal work and impeccable instrumentation, “Horizon” is one of the best albums I’ve heard all year”. ” – Goetia Metal

    “The track does an excellent job of capturing the raw energy of Until Dawn’s refined modern metal. With a wicked bass line and a bouncing chug-chug rhythm, “This Fallen Fortress” is essentially about finding strength to overcome any life challenge. It’s melodic and heavy, but it does teeter more on the hard rock, active radio side of the metal spectrum than the death metal side… but it’s still more real than metalcore.” – Yell! Magazine

    “Very similar in sound and style to KILLSWITCH ENGAGE or ALL THAT REMAINS and the whole bit, those guys from Alberta, Canada are promising indeed, the abilities to inject some infectious melodies into their Metalcore with much success is obvious and thrilling, each track reveal a little jewel hook and as always some great Headbanging riffage and furious breakdowns… ” – Metal Temple

    “Thirteen tracks in total, all highly listenable, with a few standout tracks that made a real impact on me. One of these tracks, ‘This Fallen Fortress’, was released prior to the album as a single and expresses what it was like for the band trying to break out and showcase their music to a larger audience and of gaining strength through confronting life’s obstacles.

    It’s a track that sat well with me from the offset, it has a fabulous bass opener and it’s powerful, as are a lot of the tracks on the album and was one of a couple that inexplicably made the hair stand up on the back of my neck, as did ‘A Conjurer Of Cheap Tricks’, which is awash with powerful riffs and carries a strong message.

    Other noteworthy tracks are ‘Roamers And Lurkers’, exciting, with a catchy memorable riff, ‘Strings Of The Dammed’ with a slower tempo, a bit of a groove and great picking elements, ‘DNR’, a gutsy and powerful ballad that is lyrically harrowing, about the lonely and confused end of someone’s life and finally ‘Horizon’, the title track which has a slower tempo to the greater part that is balanced against quickly delivered vocals with an up-tempo chorus and a reflective quality.” Metal Talk

    “Heavier than a CFL team, Until Dawn forges metal and classic rock in an unrelenting sonic assault.” – New Canadian Music

    “If there’s one album that you need to fit into your budget this summer, ‘Horizon’ is it. We guarantee that you won’t be disappointed and you’ll be listening to the album for the rest of the year.” – Nuclear Fallout Radio

    “While flowing through the tracks of ‘Horizon,’ there are plenty of mosh pit moments early in the album with tracks such as ‘Roamers and Lurkers’ and ‘The Red Sea Rises.’ There are even ones where you can slow down and throw your lighters in the air as well. The track ‘DNR’ being a prime example of the ability to sit back and enjoy the moment and the artistry that Until Dawn is capable of, while at the same time giving you a break half-way through the album before punishing you with their ability to be LOUD once again with the track ‘Time Tested Fortune.’ Our personal favorite tracks off of the album had to be ‘The Trial’ followed up by ‘The Fallen Fortress,’ and ‘Polar Parellels.’ Let us be clear though, there is not a single track on ‘Horizon’ that is not good quality music. This is probably one of the most complete albums we’ve had a chance to listen to all year and that says a lot.” – Nuclear Fallout Radio

    “Track after track the formula sticks to what I consider a successful metal template. Heavy guitars, heart stopping drums and bass, with vocals that are melodic, fierce, and definitely metal. If this band doesn’t reach the pinnacle of Canadian Metal I have to think that the system is broken.” – We Love Metal

    “Until Dawn is a nifty metal band who are distinctly reminiscent of groups like Trivium or even Avenged Sevenfold. Their burnished modern metal sound is a lot of fun to listen too and brooks no posers. This is mainstream metal at its finest, accessible yet still brutal with a minimum of good cop bad cop vocals. The transitions between cleans and growls is actually very well handled and I think it will call up many a comparison to Trivium.” – Two  Guys Metal Reviews

  • TRIBUNE Post New Lyric Video 'Insectoid'


    L-R | Ryan O’Shea – Bass | Jason Brown – Drums | Bryan Baker – Vocals | Terry Anderson – Guitar | Shawn Culley – Guitar  (Photo Credit: Matt Neuman - Phrozen Photography)

        Vancouver, BC based metal band TRIBUNE have posted a new lyric video for 'Insectoid' off their latest author inspired concept album 'Tales' released in October via their indie label Corpse Corrosion Music

    To view the video, please visit the following link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vlzvVO3jywg

    tribune - insectoid with lyrics

    Vocalist Bryan Baker comments:

    "This album has been inspired entirely by literature, it features a wide array of influences, from Homer to Mary Shelley to H.P. Lovecraft, and continues Tribune's trend of becoming simultaneously more melodic and more brutally heavy on each album! 'Tales' is a re-imagining of what progressive death metal can be, and the members of Tribune believe it to be their finest effort yet." 

    This follow-up to 2011’s Elder Lore/The Dark Arts, demonstrates TRIBUNE’s brawn and brains with a collusion of extremity and accessibility. As the band’s appetite for more extreme metal such as bands like Carcass, Death and At The Gates bleeds into their melting pot of influences, it has resulted in a fresh take on their fine metal sound.

    A Heavy Metal Melting Pot of Melodic Prog Death Thrash

    R.I.Y.L.  Clutch, Mastodon, Alice In Chains, Down, Lamb Of God, Superjoint Ritual, Volbeat


    "Tales is one of the most distinctive records I’ve heard this year…undoubtedly delivers difference right off the bat, putting its best foot forward and defying expectations the moment it begins by spotlighting Bryan Baker’s unprecedented singing style. Throughout the album, the man lets out an excellent array of roars and shrieks, but none are as unique as his throaty clean vocals, which most closely resemble, of all things, those of Volbeat’s Michael Poulsen. The eponymous opener spawns most of the musical threads that take precedence across the album’s 44 minutes: engaging bass lines with a strong presence in the mix, semi-melodic riffing, and a small cornucopia of shifting vocal styles. The basswork on this album is as varied as the riffing, and bassist Ryan O’Shea pushes riffs out with a lot of energy, especially on “From Funeral to Funeral,” whose odd-timed opener lets bass take the reins behind a scintillating screen of guitars. So many moments of this album are so enticing and extremely well written; when Tribune gets good, they get good .” – Angry Metal Guy


    Tribune has forged one exciting and deeply satisfying album. Tales will not take you down unknown paths or into dangerous unchartered corners of melodic death metal but undoubtedly provides a torrent of impacting and pleasing exploits which fulfils from start to finish and leaves you wanting more.” – Ring Master Review


    The flow of the release and each track is pretty remarkable, this is a very easy album to sink your teeth into, Tribune through their song writing just know where to add a spark or change in feel as if they have put themselves into the listeners shoes or rather they are making music that truly justifies reviewers high accolades, such as mine. 


    This is the release that I would expect Tribune to break through with; this is very strong material that is well written, interesting and technically excellent.” – Brutalism


    Canadian band, TRIBUNE, are an eclectic mix of different sounds and genres that result in a refreshing style that can only be heard to fully understand. The progressive quintet’s second full-length album, Tales, is a concept album based on the writings of renowned authors, like Lovecraft and Wells, but the music remains intensive and enjoyable.


    Influences like VOLBEAT and MASTODON are heavily noticeable throughout the album, and vocalist, Bryan Baker, does a fantastic job delivering both the clean and harsh vocals. Tracks like “Insectoid” and “King Of Ithaca” highlight the impressive clean range, while songs like “Horror” and “Vengeance” are very heavy on the growled spectrum of the vocals.


    “From Funeral To Funeral” makes heavy use of the dual guitars to lead into the chaotic verses. Likewise, the rest of the musicianship on the album is impeccable…” –  Metal-Observer


    Tales is a nine track adventure of massive bursts of progression, thrash and melodic rock. The group is fronted by the multi-layered vocals of Bryan Baker who switches effortlessly from a mellifluous standpoint and then spirals into harsher territories of monster-like growls and high pitched wailing. The style is definitely stop-start throughout the album, but it’s seamless and flows well with the music. At times they remind me of Protest the Hero another Canadian act who rely upon a similar progressive template, but have since streamlined their approach. Luckily, Tribune continues to explore and push their core sound into uncharted realms of death, doom, and thrash metal.


    You can also hear influences from bands like Carcass, Death and At the Gates incorporated into their vast cannon of sounds, but I could also see fans that like Volbeat, Clutch and Mastodon dig this too. The music is polymorphic and demonstrates a willingness to break through the standard musical barrier and this is demonstrated fully on tracks like “Insectoid” and “From Funeral to Funeral”. Probably for me though, tracks like “Vengeance” or even “King of Ithaca” are the most accessible and catchiest numbers to be found here, so this adds to the plethora of extremity of Tales. - Horror Metal Sounds


    “very now and then, a band comes around with a defined sound unlike anything previously heard by the listener. Such is the case with Tribune, and their latest release Tales.” – Kosher Metal


    “Hailing from Canada, Tribune is among the more original bands on the thrash metal scene. Their second album “Tales”, which was released in October via Corpse Corrosion Music, definitely reflects songwriting that seeks to go beyond the ordinary. Their style is incredibly ecletcic, to the point that some reviewers have accused Tribune of being unfocused. I, for one, appreciate the eclectism and the variation. The songs on the album are generally sophisticated and complex in terms of structure, and the Canadian quintet successfully incorporate influences from as varied sources as Volbeat, Mastodon, Realm, and Iron Maiden into their sound, which also features elements from death metal, metalcore and melodeath…if you’re into challenging and eclectic metal, then “Tales” is definitely worth a listen.” – Metal Music Archives


    “Superb return from an as-yet undiscovered gem of a band…Canuck progsters Tribune continue to carve a nice little niche withTales, their third full lengther. Refreshingly, they seem content to plough their own (extremely heavy) furrow with little or no care for what’s going on in the wider world of heavy metal and it’s associated offshoots.” - Metal As Fuck


    “Tribune’s album, their third, develops this aforementioned blend of fiction and metal by offering listeners nine solid songs about stories. From beginning to end, the album delivers a stirring blend of heavy music based on stirring and terrific tales. I’m not sure I can name all the stories they draw on off hand, but I do know that Lovecraft’s “The Dunwich Horror” is among the represented tales, as is Homer’s The Odyssey. I especially enjoyed the former, mostly because I’ve been obsessed with the connection between Lovecraft and heavy metal for over a decade…One of the highlights of this album is Bryan Baker’s vocal style. He has a good, clean, voice that he sometimes alternates with a powerful screech that is as evil as they come. Alongside him, the rest of the band show that they are clearly a talented bunch. To me, the twin guitar harmonies, something I never get tired of, were a highlight. Interested listeners should definitely check out tracks like “Tales,” “The Butterfly Effect,” “From Funeral to Funeral,” and “Horror.” I also enjoyed “King of Ithaca.” This is a good album. Check it out.” – Sea of Tranquility

    “If prog-infused death/thrash sounds like your thing then wrap this around your ears and don’t stop…” – MetalAsFuck.net

    “Tribune prove themselves an imaginative, intelligent and technically proficient band on ‘The Elder Lore – The Dark Arts’; if you’re a Metalhead, you should definitely be listening to this one.” – Confront Magazine  9/10

    “The album is a big snack of metal and I like it.” – MetalGlory.de

    “the nine minute beast of an ending ‘The World’s Greatest Cynic’, which is like a greatest hits of Tribune’s capabilities in one swoop. ”- Metal-Rules.com

    “check out the relentless staccato machine-gun groove of ‘The Succubus’” – Bravewords.com

    “In 25 words or less: ‘Prog, Metal, Thrash, Rock, Doom, take your pick, you’ve got it all here…” – MayTheRockBeWithYou.com

    “Elder Lore/The Dark Arts is a riff-driven, groovy thrash album with a bit of a melodic death metal/metalcore appeal. The guitars are sharp and bouncy and there’s a good amount of grooves and solos.” – TeethofTheDivine.com

    “‘The Warrior Mentality,’ my favorite on the album, shows influences from Black Sabbath and Dream Theater to Iron Maiden and Lamb of God.  It’s a very cool, riff oriented song! …The musicianship is extremely skilled-these guys are tight.  Production on the album is also a highlight.  Very well done.  These guys kick ass and will be a force to be reckoned with in the future. “ 4/5 – SkullsnBones.com 

    “The band has unleashed a powerful new effort entitledElder Lore / The Dark Arts, and it’s sure to gain Tribune a monstrous amount of accolades from all over the globe.” – HighWireDaze.com

    “On their second full-length release, “Elder Lore/ The Dark Arts” the band Tribune (who hail from Burnaby, BC.) decided to break into my house, steal all of my heavy metal collection and then craft an album that explored all the various bands I listen to. How else does one explain everything this five piece band throws out to the listener? Classic heavy metal? Check. Thrash? Check. Melodic hardcore? Check. Progressive metal? Check. Death metal? Check. Doom? Check. It is all here and then some.” – Heavy Metal Time Machine

    “Tribune is a rarity in 2012: a band whose members have molten metal, and not much else, coursing through their veins. Forget throwing hip-hop, rap-rock, screamo, punk, or hardcore-electro free jazz into the mix: Elder Lore/The Dark Arts is aimed at those who pine for a less complicated time, when Headbangers Ball was must-see TV, and Studebakers on Kingsway was doing booming business.

    Tribune not only acquits itself admirably here, but also implies that it knows the metal landscape has shifted since Iron Maiden and Judas Priest were something more than glorified nostalgia acts. What you get is eight songs that suggest a well-stocked iPod on Shuffle—assuming that said iPod is loaded with metal, metal, and more metal, none of it hairspray-scented.” – The Georgia Straight (Vancouver, BC)

    “The third release from this Burnaby “thrash/prog rock/metal band” pretty much meets its description. From the growls and frog ribbits that open “It Came From the Swamps,” there is equal parts straight on metal boogie only to break into hyper speed shriek breaks unexpectedly and about three bands in one by song’s end.  The group appears to hit its stride most effectively on the full-on thrash of  ”The Succubus,” with some particularly tasty vocals. Perhaps my fave track is “The Warrior Mentality” for its pulsing build to tortured screams and then an almost Alice In Chains-ish turn later on. If you favour heavy guitar lead workouts, this isn’t your cuppa. These guys get to the point and drive it home with maximum force and minimum flash.  And they really sound like they know their strengths and play to them.” - The Province (Vancouver, BC)

    “This is a top quality release;… their arrangements are verging into Mastodon’s playground with a fresher, more honest delivery clearly audible and some of the arrangements are of a quality that I would expect from say someone like Tool, and they are damn perfectionists, hence, Tribune have massive potential. ” – Brutalism.com

    “..the best thing about Elder Lore The Dark Arts is the music…traditional foundation and some nice fret work, this album is an interesting listen….clever and appealing …one album to check out.” – DangerDog.com

    Great sounding melodic death/thrash metal band that combines both classic and modern metal to create a new sound and if you are looking for a band that combines a variety of metal genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE “It Came From The Swamps” “The Succubus” and “We, The Black”.” – Variety of Death Zine

    “A force to be reckoned with, metal flows through the veins of Tribune one of the best thrasher bands to come out of Canada.” – DJ Metalgod - Mental Metal Show

    “An interesting hybrid of thrash and progressive melodic post / rock…. “Elder Lore / The Dark Arts” is a versatile full-length” – StereoInvaders.com

    “Elder Lore/The Dark Arts  has all the necessary ingredients of an accessible and unique Metal release for 2012, and Tribune are clearly ready to capitalize on their assets.” Vile-Views.com

    “Elder Lore/The Dark Arts has all of the great things you need to see in a band, the musicianship, the chemistry between the band members, and the great music. It’s a really solid record…fans of un-signable metal bands will have great stuff on their hands, from the short heavy stuff of “The Succubus” to the long epic proggy sound of “The World’s Greatest Cynic.”" – Jorzine.com

    ““Elder Lore/The Dark” is an awesome album…The album’s highlight is the nine minutes long “The World’s Greatest Cynic” with the awesome collection of riffs, melodies and expressional vocals.” – MetalKaoz.com

    “‘Man on the Outside’ is a great example of what the band is capable of … The double axe work of Anderson and Culley really shine all over and vocalist Bryan Baker is easily one of the most talented and diverse singers I’ve ever heard.” – MetalBlast.net

    “This modern approach will certainly hold a lot of appeal to younger Metal fans, there are some good vocals from Reshaun Page, a mix of gutturals, screams and cleans and the balance between the two is about right, not too many cleans, which were a touch emotive for my personal tastes but nonetheless very well executed, the guy has a great voice and a phenomenal range. What did really appeal to me, personally, were the technical elements to the guitars from Jordan Turnbull, altogether the combination making a good debut release. ” – Metal Talk

    “Ringing guitars flanked by an assaultive underbeat and drill sergeant vocals combine to create a winning album by a band not afraid of hard work.” – New Canadian Music

    “Where Giants Once Stood is a veritable Canadian metal force. A group who have a fairly good handle on mixing cleans and growls this band is simply fun to listen too. Their crazed riffs help to inspire circle pit starting fury in my heart and make me want to headbang until I throw my back out. Meanwhile the crushing playing on songs like Heavens Tremble shows a touch of the classic hardcore attitude promising a face ripping good time. Their mix of furious riffs and super technical solos is not to be missed.” – Two Guys Metal Reviews

  • PSYCHOTICK Post Outtakes/Blooper Video From 'Obey The Beard'

    L-R - Alex “Shmalex” Dontre – Drums | Josh “The J” Key – Guitar | Rob “Rawrb” Kersey – Vocals | Matty J “Moose” – Bass 

         Comedy rock band Psychostick have posted a blooper reel from their latest music video 'Obey The Beard', which the band released as part of their fan funding campaign taking place at Indiegogo.com and running till December 5th. (Go to www.indiegogo.com/projects/new-psychostick-album-and-recording-studio/x/4100572.) The campaign is to raise money to record a new album and complete construction on their recording studio.

    To view the outtakes from 'Obey The Beard', please visit the following link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oNS-oW_FU0c

    The band also posted a video short 'Alex is Dead, Stupid Drummer Dies' in support of the campaignhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qtMpVdZcsHA

    Fans who contribute to the fund raising efforts will score a free MP3 of 'Obey The Beard' song and other cool stuff for helping the band finance their next album and the completion of their recording studio. 

    Says Psychostick guitarist Josh Key:  “This fundraiser is not just for a new album, but so much more! We're building a sweet studio; we want to put out new music and videos on a regular basis, so that fans don't have to wait through long dry spells between albums to hear something new from us. This fundraiser will enable us to make that happen.”  Vocalist Rob Kersey concurs, saying, “Having our own studio and the ability to record songs right away will be a huge dream come true for us. We literally have around a hundred or so song ideas that often get put on the back burner, but with this sweet setup we can finally become that recording machine we've always wanted to be. This fundraiser along with our amazing fans can help us fuel this machine for more brutal laughs in the years to come.”

    Psychostick also plans to release several promotional videos during the course of the Indiegogo campaign, and contributors will also be privy to additional private videos once the album recording process gets underway.  Like other fan funding efforts, Psychostick is planning a number of incentive tiers as part of the campaign.  Among the items being offered are things such as:  a signed CD, custom ringtone recorded by the band, exclusive t-shirt, custom kick drum head, guest list for life, cameo in a Psychostick video, and everything and the (literal) kitchen sink.

    Usually touring ninja warriors, the band, just off of their “Blow Your Fingers Off” summer tour and their late summer dates with American Head Charge, will be sticking close to home as work on the new album kicks off.  Tour stops over the summer also included Rockapalooza, A2 Fest, Breast Fest Biker Bash, and Dirtfest.  In July, they released their latest music video for the song “Sadface Emoticon” (http://youtu.be/ZsqZl3VqoM4), and which followed their video for “Dogs Like Socks,” which was released earlier this year (http://youtu.be/swmuqGWgZCc).

    Harnessing their crazy sense of humor and love of all things metal, vocalist Rob “Rawrb” Kersey and guitarist Josh “The J” Key joined forces with drummer Alex “Shmalex” Dontre and bassist  Matty J “Moose” to create Pyschostick, a band they've coined as humorcore. With hilarious lyrics, heavy riffs, notorious stage antics and high-energy performances, the band has caused millions of laughs around the world and hundreds of mosh pits across the US, often simultaneously, since its birth in Phoenix, AZ in 2000.

    Almost 100 percent do-it-yourself, Psychostick never strays from its signature sound, a combination of heavy music that Chimaira, Machine Head, and Hatebreed would be proud of, and wit and humor that would make Tenacious D and Weird Al Yankovic holler with laughter.

    With three full-length albums behind them – “We Couldn’t Think of a Title,” “Sandwich,” and their holiday album, “The Flesh Eating Rollerskate Holiday Joyride” - the band released their latest record, “Space Vampires vs. Zombie Dinosaurs in 3D,” in 2011, following it up with a tour with Mushroomhead to add to their total count of 21 nationwide tours that have hit 47 states.

    Upcoming Show Dates:

    November 30 - The Foundry - Jackson, MI

    December 5 - Pop's - St. Louis, MO

    December 6 - The Fillmor - Wausau, WI
