All your scene dreams are coming true! Okay, so that’s a bit of hyperbole, but there’s also a bit of truth to it. Not that it’s much of a surprise, as the bands have hinted at it for weeks, but Blessthefall and Escape The Fate will be playing their sophomore albums Witness and This War Is Ours on a US tour this fall, celebrating both records’ 10th anniversaries. Joining both bands will be Islander, who (hopefully) will have a new record out soon, too. Check out the full routing below.

Recently our photojournalist Savannah Rowley captured I Prevail’s current headline Rage on the Stage Tour with Escape the Fate, The Word Alive, and We Came as Romans as supporting acts. The tour is just over halfway finished, so if it hasn’t hit a city near you be sure to pick up tickets here.
Detroit post-hardcore band I Prevail have gone from, in the span of just 3 years, total unknowns to headlining above some of their peers that have been established for well over 5 or more years. Regardless of how you feel about the band’s radio-friendly approach to post-hardcore/metalcore (comparisons to A Day To Remember abound), it’s clear that I Prevail are a very popular band at this point. They literally went from being unknown to debuting (with an EP and a popular cover of Taylor Swift’s “Blank Space”) on the Billboard Top 200 at #88. To date, the debut EP has sold over 60,000 copies, which is basically unprecedented in today’s market. And yet, people are legimately angry that I Prevail is, on their recently announced headlining tour, headlining over bands like The Word Alive, We Came As Romans, and Escape The Fate – bands that recently were charting high themselves and headlining their own popular tours.
We need to examine why people are getting mad at this, because how tours actually work are far different than an uninformed fan likely thinks they do.
