2010 Take Action Tour Australia Announced!Uncategorized — By HopelessMelissa on June 9, 2010
Hopeless Records, through its non-profit organization Sub City, is pleased to once again bring you the Take Action Tour Australia. This year the tour will once again spotlight ReachOut.com, an Australian youth service aimed to improve the mental health and wellbeing of Australian young people.
Presented by Destroy All Line, Hopeless Records, Mistake Clothing, Blunt and killyourstere.com the tour will feature headliner Attack Attack!, in addition to Pierce The Veil and Dream On, Dreamer. The annual charity tour, now in its ninth year, raises funds and awareness for youth involvement in charitable action. The tour will kick off in Adelaide on September 10 and end on September 19 in Brisbane. Tickets will go on sale on June 18.
Reach Out is a web-based service that aims to improve the mental health and wellbeing of young people aged 14-25 years by providing them with information, support and advice on issues like depression, bullying, wellbeing and relationships. The anonymous and free support website offers skill development by working with health professionals to strengthen the pathways between online and community based service delivery. 10% (excluding GST) of the cost of each ticket sold is donated to further this cause making each person attending the Take Action Tour an active participant in making the world a better place.
The tour’s headliners Attack Attack!, hailing from central Ohio, have gone from strength to strength since the release of their debut full-length, Someday Came Suddenly. Amidst the sensationalist reviews, mainstream news coverage and viral video crazes, the brash quintet has ignored the naysayers and persevered to become one of the most rapidly rising and exciting bands in heavy music today! With their self-titled second record quickly cementing their position atop the post-hardcore heap, Attack Attack! are here to move and shake the very foundations of the genre.
No strangers to the road, San Diego four-piece Pierce The Veil will also be making their first appearance on Australian shores as part of Take Action. After the breakout success of their Equal Vision backed debut A Flair For The Dramatic, the forward-thinking quartet racked up some serious miles in the van with everyone from Bring Me The Horizon and The Devil Wears Prada to Four Year Strong and Mayday Parade, while still finding the time to write their smashing new album, Selfish Machines.
Joining these US acts on the road will be Melbourne newcomers Dream On, Dreamer, who recently released their debut EP Hope through Boomtown Records.
Take Action Tour Australia 2009, spearheaded by the chart-topping All Time Low and pop-punk sensations Set Your Goals raised over $17,000 for the youth suicide prevention team at ReachOut.com, an achievement that is set to repeat itself off the back of this year’s eclectic line-up.
The Take Action Tour is always comprised of the brightest up-and-coming stars of tomorrow. Previous acts involved include: The Plain White T’s, All Time Low, The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, We The Kings, Paramore, Every Time I Die, Jimmy Eat World, Avenged Sevenfold, Hawthorne Heights, Chiodos, Thrice, Anti-Flag, Silverstein, Dillinger Escape Plan, and many more.
