Middle Class Rut To Hit The Road This April With Chevelle + Headlining Tour in February, March

“Their sound is nothing short of colossal, and one that a mere two‐piece shouldn’t be able to create, combining the boisterous swagger and pomp of Jane’s Addiction and the feral fury of Rage Against the Machine.” – Kerrang!

We are proud to announce that the Sacramento, CA-based duo Middle Class Rut will be embarking on an exciting new tour this April where they will open for Chicago rock actChevelle.

Middle Class Rut has toured with Chevelle in the past, as well as with the likes of Muse, Social Distortion, Them Crooked Vultures, Alice In Chains, 30 Seconds To Mars andLinkin Park, among others. Before hitting the road with Chevelle in April, MCR will also perform a string of headlining dates with Dinosaur Pile Up and Brick and Mortar; see all dates below.

Comprised of vocalist/guitarist Zack Lopez and vocalist/drummer Sean Stockham, Middle Class Rut raised the bar with their latest release, June 2013’s Pick Up Your Head, which sees the duo opening up their sound. “We realized we’d exhausted everything we could do with drums, guitar, and vocals,” Lopez explains. “Once we decided to take an ‘anything goes’ approach, the songs poured out. We were freer with layering and didn’t worry if we couldn’t reproduce it live, as long as we captured the music with the highest energy possible.”

DANKO JONES has posted the new music video for the track ‘I Believed in God’ on their YouTube page, starring Zelda Williams (daughter of Robin Williams) and Jason Trost (featured in the ‘Full of Regret’ and ‘I Think Bad Thoughts’ videos and writer / director / star of movies like The FP and Vs) in a love story… of sorts. Check out the video here: http://youtu.be/iLjwYpyGDZI The video is directed by the Diamond Bros, who are also responsible for the band’s four previous videos as well as “Bring On The Mountain” – the much heralded documentary that was released last year.

 

The video was shot in Los Angeles and enlisted a production crew worthy of a Hollywood blockbuster with previous credits including Looper, Men In Black, Predator 2 and many more. Directors of photography were Kenny Stoff and Jessica Young who also did Dave Grohl’s Sound City documentary. For a behind the scenes look on the shoot, check out the clip below:

“We’re really looking forward to returning to Rock On The Range with a batch of brand new killer Alice tunes
to play for everyone!” says Jerry Cantrell, Alice In Chains.

“Head is back!!,” says Korn’s Jonathan Davis. “Rock On The Range is going to start it all off!! Get ready,
we are going to hit it hard!!”

“Bush are thrilled to be playing Rock On The Range with such great bands,” says Bush’s Gavin Rosdale.
“We look forward to seeing you all out there.”

“This massive lineup has scratched our seven-year itch!” says Gary Spivack, co-executive producer of the
event for Right Arm Entertainment. “Getting Soundgarden for their first Ohio play in two decades and
having seminal acts Alice In Chains, Korn, Volbeat and Papa Roach return along with bands new to ROTR that
include Smashing Pumpkins and Bush, and everything in between–the spectrum of rock n roll is covered…three days of constant energy. Rock On The Range is truly where rock lives.”

Now in its seventh year, ROTR will again take place at Columbus Crew Stadium in Columbus, OH on Friday, May 17, Saturday, May 18 and Sunday, May 19, 2013. With the addition of a full slate of artists performing on Friday, festival organizers are also adding a series of additional enhancements for ROTR 2013, including the new ROTR Comedy Tent.
“Our goal with ROTR is to constantly create new and interesting ways to expand the event and give even more
value to our fans,” comments Joe Litvag, co-executive producer of the event for AEG Live. “In 2013, we’ve
added a comedy tent within the site that will be curated by The Funny Bone comedy club. Having a slate of
incredible, up-and-coming comedians to riff on the rock experience will be a great change of pace for the
weekend. The site layout is also changing dramatically in 2013 to create better event flow, to add more
interactive fan activity to the festival, and to allow even more people to experience the higher caliber of talent
on the second stage this year.”

As a special limited offer, pre-sale weekend tickets start at a low price of $89.50 (plus fees), for Stadium
GA tickets only, from Wednesday, January 30 through Thursday, January 31 at 10pm EST.
