10 For $10 Summer Tour

Poison The Well, Madball, Bane, Vision Of Disorder along with others are scheduled to participate in the “10 for $10 Summer Tour”. The official press release may be read below, followed by dates in our area:

“IndieMerchStore.com is bringing back the hardcore matinee! Amid economy woes, rising show costs and the dilution of hardcore packages, they will present the 10 For $10 summer tour. Ten quality bands for ten dollars, headlined by Poison The Well, who will be performing on every date, and on separate legs of the tour headline spots from Madball, Bane, and Vision Of Disorder. Also appearing will be established bands with rabid followings such as Terror, Death Before Dishonor, War Of Ages, Crime In Stereo, Trapped Under Ice, The Mongoloids, The Ghost Inside, This Is Hell and Vision. Speaking on the creation of the tour, booking guru Tim Borror of The Agency Group said, “This tour is important because hardcore music is a lifestyle and has been an inspiration to the people who get involved and know what the movement and music is all about. In the last few years the crowds have been a bit smaller than what they should be and we hope an idea like this where kids are getting an opportunity to check out a lot of bands for cheap will inspire some new kids to come out, get involved and become a part of this scene to help it grow.”

Echoing the sentiment Freddy Cricien of Madball said, “This 10 for 10 tour concept is way overdue in my opinion. I’m glad and thankful, that the people involved, stepped up to actually make something like this happen! Our genre [hardcore] in the states, is in a ‘strange’ place right now. There is somewhat of a lack of appreciation for this ‘sub-culture.’ A lot of people want to say they know certain bands, or are affiliated with this underground scene,etc,etc… Because it gives them some credibility, it sounds cool! Well, this is everyones chance to re-introduce themselves, and actually get involved with a very unique and authentic genre/movement. It’s also a chance for all of us, the bands, to show our stuff as well!”

Poison The Well‘s guitarist, Ryan Primack, says, “This tour is really exciting to us as it shows some massive diversity that occurs in the hardcore scene. I think it’s really amazing that Tim put this group of bands together. Some of bands on this tour have really shaped the good things that are happening in hardcore right now. Without some of the bands on this tour I doubt we would even be a band. We’re honored and privileged to be sharing the stage with them.”
