MY RUIN – Southern Revelation Tour 2012!

 

Los Angeles based underground metal veterans My Ruin featuring lead screamer Tairrie B and guitarist / husband Mick Murphy announce their “Southern Revelation Tour” to celebrate the release of My Ruin’s new seventh album “A Southern Revelation” which the band are making available as a *Free Download* and gift to fans starting December 7, 2011 exclusively via www.myruin.net

The tour is being presented by Monsta Ents / STC Touring in association with Laney Amps, Devolution Magazine, Seventh Circle Artworks, Redeemer and Circle Pit. Special guests for the tour are British metal heavyweights Godsized along with Colchester thrashers and long time friends Sanctorum and Nottingham rockers Long Day Fear!

Commented Tairrie B: “We’re looking forward to returning to the UK and kicking things off in a big way with our first show in Glasgow, Scotlandon January 18th for my birthday! In the past we have always played London on this occasion but since we were forced to cancel our last show at Classic Grand on our previous tour due to my being severely ill at the time, we wanted to do something special for our friends and fans who have been waiting to see us to make up for it. Previously purchased tickets from March 2011 will remain valid for the new show and we will be having an after party / meet & greet following our set on this and a few other select dates during the tour.  

We’re playing many of our favorite cities in the UK  this time around which except for two familiar haunts,  will be our first time playing most of these new venues including one night near Paris in Vaureal, France which I’m sure will be a evening to remember and ending the tour back in England at a deconsecrated church! We are also excited to announce we have a new drummer by the name of Isaac Lee. Isaac has replaced Matt LeChevalier who toured our “Ghosts and Good Stories” album with us and remains a good friend. Unfortunately Matt being based in Francebecame a bit difficult for us logistically and did not allow for My Ruin to work as much as we would like as a band.  With the new album, we felt it was time to look for a more permanent drummer. 

Although not originally from Los Angeles, Isaac currently lives in LA and we felt an immediate connection with him when he reached out to us after hearing from a mutual acquaintance that we were quietly looking for someone new to fill the drum seat. It’s been great getting to know Isaac and watch the songs from our new album come to life with the band which is on fire at the moment in the rehearsal studio. We just filmed our first video together for the song “TennesseeElegy” and have recently confirmed several warm up shows which we will soon be announcing in and around LA for November & December.”
