CHALLENGER KICK IT IN JAPAN

After recouping from an unfortunate hit and run accident this past January, it seems like Dave Laney along with the rest of his ramshackle crew are on a total rampage. The kids in CHALLENGER have been strutting their stuff night after night on the Jade Tree United Tour, rocking tunes from their devastating debut Give People What They Want In Lethal Doses LP/CD (JT1092). What’s next for the Chicago-based foursome? Well they’ll be heading East to Japan for a week long stint, before returning home for more touring throughout the summer.

So If you still have a chance to catch the tail end of the Jade Tree United Tour then head out and do so, if not look here for more news soon as CHALLENGER have only really just begun their bid for total domination before the year is out.

Please consult the Challenger for current dates.

DESPISTADO AND STATISTICS TO TOUR CANADA

DESPISTADO are gearing up to head out with Omaha-born labelmates STATISTICS for a Canadian tour in support of their debut Jade Tree joint, The Emergency Response CD EP (JT1096) due out June 22nd. Furthermore, the band has just stepped out of the studio where they were putting the finishing touches on their first full length, which is slated for release this coming fall, so expect a selection of old hits and new jams as both bands destroy club-to-club throughout the months of May and June.

Also, while the EP still has yet to drop onto record shelves, the hype is already red hot. Scope the links below to see what folks have been saying about one of Canada’s rapidly rising stars:

THE JADE TREE UNITED TOUR CUTS EYES, KICKS ASS, AND TAKES NAMES

The PUNKVOTER/JADE TREE UNITED TOUR is heading into it’s third week and the bizarre injury list is ever growing. First up Brad of FROM ASHES RISE fame, during one of his patented rock kicks, came down hard on his ankle sending the lanky front man limping into the hospital and back out on crutches with a badly sprained foot. Then CHALLENGER’S Jessica Hopper, in a freak sleeping bag accident, cut her cornea and spent the night in a Chicago emergency room getting fitted for an eye patch. Luckily neither would dream of packing it in after such minor diversions as Brad spent the very next night slaying the crowd from a club barstool, and Hopper proudly fronted her new pirate patch look while CHALLENGER killed it at their sold out record release show at the Fireside Bowling Alley. STRIKE ANYWHERE have yet to befall any serious injuries (knock on wood) and the tours newest addition, Kentucky’s BREATHER RESIST, will be hitting the stage every night this week with their fingers crossed.

More news later, now get out and see the tour, as it doesn’t get anymore dangerous than this…period!
