Ripple News - Hurt Announce Tour Dates

With the first single “Wars” from their forthcoming new album, already racing up the Active Rock charts, Hurt announced their first tour dates in support of the new album this morning.

Beginning on May 1st in Hattiesburg, MS, Hurt will have upcoming stops in Chicago, Houston, St. Louis and will also perform at this year’s Rock On The Range Festival and Edgefest. Dates are scheduled through the end of May right now, and more are expected to be added shortly.

Hurt’s latest single “Wars” (currently #24 on the active rock charts) is the band’s fifth straight hit at rock radio and has already become one of the band’s fastest rising singles of their career. The band’s brand new album, Goodbye To The Machine, is the follow up to Vol. II, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard Heatseekers Album Chart upon its week of release. It’s the band’s fifth release overall and the first release via their new label, Amusement Recordings.

“We had this idea of doing a record ‘the old school method,’ as opposed to the previous two records, that had been recorded to Protools – as almost all records are done nowadays,” explains Rek. “What we wanted to do was go back to our roots, and show a different side of the band – not so much hide behind layers and layers of production. We wanted to write songs that stood more on their own and to record them to analog tape, using analog gear.”

The results of this new approach for the band has certainly paid off, as evidenced by such standout tracks as “Pills,” “Dreams Away,” “Fighting Tao,” and “World Ain’t Right,” the latter of which features Shaun Morgan of Seether.
