Touring in support of their new EP, Nevermore, Art of Dying wrap up their three month long headline tour with final dates throughout October including a stop on October 13 at Home Bar in Arlington Heights, IL. Handpicked as direct support for the tour are Children 18:3 and Letters From The Fire. See all remaining dates below.
“We are looking forward to this tour in a big way”, says Art of Dying frontman Jonny Hetherington. “A lot of amazing clubs in some of our favorite cities where we are able to get up close and personal with our biggest fans at our VIP engagements. We’re also stoked to be bringing along some cool new bands.”
The band are offering a VIP upgrade which includes soundcheck, an exclusive 8×10 band photo, which the band will sign for you, and a limited edition VIP laminate. Find VIP details and dates here.
Torn Down, the first single from their 6-song EP, is about believing in yourself. “Sometimes it’s hard to dig deep and find your pilot light in the darkness, but it’s there.” says Jonny Hetherington. “I came across Amanda and Jonah’s (Amanda Todd and Jonah Mowrey) stories on YouTube and they really affected me. In a way, they both inspired this song. Unfortunately we lost Amanda. I hope ‘Torn Down’ can be a beacon to those who find themselves at the end of their rope.”
Hetherington states, “A lot of the lyrical content on this album is about overcoming adversity. About taking yourself beyond where you thought you could go… about stepping away from toxic relationships.” Nevermore is a record for the believers, for the die hards, for those sick of getting torn down, but also those who realize they are strong enough to get back up.
