Hopeless Records/Sub City's 11th annual Take Action Tour has kicked off its 2013 run and we're very excited to announce PureVolume's sponsorship of the trek! Headlining the 33-day run is seminal alt-rock outfit the Used, with support acts including metalcore favorites We Came As Romans, electro-inspired metal band Crown the Empire and Brazilian rockers MindFlow.
This year's tour is set to benefit the It Gets Better Project—a non-profit organization created to show young people from the LGBT community that there is infinite potential and happiness in their lives despite the struggles their teenage years may bring. And with 10-percent of all ticket sales going to benefit the organization, you can go see your fave bands with the knowledge you're also contributing some good to the world!
In celebration of our sponsorship, and in support of the tour's first week of shows, we've put together a special Take Action Tour playlist, featuring a grand total of 12 tracks. Spin a special acoustic version of the Used's "I Come Alive," as well as their rendition of "Lunacy Fringe" for our own PV Sessions, enjoy two brand new tunes from We Came As Romans, and treat yourself to the tunes of Crown the Empire and MindFlow.
Oh yeah, we also had Bert McCracken (the Used) and We Came As Romans film a special video greeting from the road, just for you!
The tour's just getting started, so check out the remaining dates and details below, and keep your eye on PV for more exclusive features and surprises from all four bands!
