Bring The Noise webzine presents ECHOES and ACRES UK co-headline tour

Tuesday 22nd April, 2014
Post-metallers ECHOES and melodic hardcore five-piece ACRES join forces for a UK co-headline tour this May.

Presented by Bring The Noise, ECHOES are touring in support of their debut album, 'The Pursuit', a 10-track opus of emotionally charged soundscapes. Newcomers ACRES will be showcasing tracks of their powerful debut EP, 'Solace'.

Bring The Noise have been great supporters of Echoes, stating in their album review "The Pursuit is a body of work that is expansive, gritty, heavy and emotionally complex that was well worth the four year wait." Check out the full review here:

"Bring the Noise are delighted to be involved in Echoes and Acres tour" says Deputy Metal Editor Lisa Fox

Catch them on one of the following dates:

22 May - Static, Swansea*
23 May - Hellfire, Redhill
24 May - Sanctury, Bastingstoke
26 May - Adam & Eve's, Birmingham
27 May - Downstairs, Aberdeen
28 May - Banshees, Edinburgh

More information on ECHOES:

Echoes embarked on a quest in 2010 to create a sound that is entirely true to themselves; now, in 2014, they have realized their vision with a body of work that is ethereal, gritty, heavy and emotionally complex. The debut album "The Pursuit" is the result of years of experimentation and tweaking in both live and studio settings, and marks the milestone of a very exciting time for this young band as they prepare to take their sound to the masses.

A relentless DIY touring machine, Echoes have travelled the UK and Europe countless times, developing a loyal fan base along the way. Having shared the stage with the likes of Devil Sold His Soul, Feed The Rhino and Heights and partnered up for tours with Our People Vs Yours and others, the band have racked up over 150 shows in their small time together.

"The Pursuit" was released 24 March 2014.

More information on ACRES:
Acres are five friends from the South of England that play music for the texture, tone, feel, ambience and emotion that it generates. In their first year as a band they've been coined a number of different genres, but if one needs to be given they'd be best described as ambient post-hardcore.

The debut EP "Solace" was released on 31 March on Small Town Records.
