Bookmark and Share
Eleven Seven Music has partnered with A2IM (American Association of Independent Music) to create the "Eleven Seven Music Presents The Connection Tour." The tour features Eleven Seven Music roster standouts, the Grammy-nominated, multi-platinum alternative rock band Papa Roach as headliners, with labelmates, the kings of underground rock, Escape The Fate and Century Media's up-and-coming active rockers, Otherwise. The dates will kick off in Miami at Revolution on Tuesday, April 16th. Please see below for the full itinerary, along with additional Papa Roach tour dates. Click here to check out a preview of the tour. With the purchase of a ticket, fans will receive a free Eleven Seven Music album sampler featuring Papa Roach, Escape The Fate, Drowning Pool, HELLYEAH, The Blackout and one track from Otherwise. Please see below for track listing. The album sampler is also available for purchase on iTunes to those who can't make it to a show for $6.99. VIP Packages for select dates will also be available starting at 10AM local venue time on Wednesday, February 27th. Visit paparoach.com/events for more details.

A2IM President, Rich Bengloff notes, "One of the true strengths of the independent music label community is that our label members are true brands, whether it be the Blues (Alligator), EDM (Ultra), Metal (Century Media), Reggae (VP), or a leading rock brand like Eleven Seven Music. I applaud Allen Kovac and his team at Eleven Seven Music for creating what we hope will be the first of many independent artist branded tours, in this case for the rock music community and its fans."

Eleven Seven Music Founder and CEO, Allen Kovac adds, "This is an integrated marketing concept that will make it easier for branded labels to work with promoters to increase ticket sales, especially in markets that don't have rock or alternative radio stations. The industry needs turnkey marketing opportunities to allow for the best use of new media."

Tour headliners Papa Roach recently released their sixth studio album (their second for label home Eleven Seven Music), the tour's namesake, THE CONNECTION. The albumwas produced by rock veteran James Michael (Sixx:A.M., Halestorm) and John Feldmann (Panic at the Disco, The Used, Escape the Fate) and has been receiving critical praise across the board. Revolver declared the album, "a fist-pumping return to form..." Papa Roach has sold upwards of 10 million albums worldwide. The band boasts two Grammy nominations, an MTV VMA nomination, as well as ten Top 10 rock hits, seven Top 10 alternative hits and can claim the Most Played Alternative Song of the Decade (BDS) with their breakthrough single "Last Resort." Known for their electrifying and explosive live shows, Papa Roach has become the common denominator for some of the most successful rock tours in recent years.

New to the Eleven Seven Music roster, Escape The Fate is set to release their fourth studio album and first for their new label home, UNGRATEFUL on May 14th. Despite giving their lead single and title track away for free for 24 hours on AltPress.com, the track landed on iTunes' rock singles chart at #2 and sold a staggering 4,500 in the first week - supporting the claim that the band's quality of music is better than ever. The album was co-produced by John Feldmann (Panic At The Disco, The Used, Papa Roach), guitarist Monte Money and Brandon Saller (Atreyu) and mixed by Josh Wilbur (Lamb Of God, System Of A Down, Chevelle) and is poised to be one of the great standout rock albums of 2013. UNGRATEFUL features an exciting blend of soaring choruses, lyrical intensity and classic elements of alternative rock for which the band has come to be known.

Rounding out the bill are hard rockers Otherwise, who will be touring in support of their Century Media debut album, TRUE LOVE NEVER DIES. Released last year, the album features the breakout single, "Soldiers." "Soldiers" has sold over 100,000 units to date and was a Top 20 Active Rock radio hit. Their current single, "I Don't Apologize" is currently Top 15 at Active Rock radio.
