CLOSE TO HOME ANNOUNCE FIRST U.S. TOUR FOR 2012

CO-Headliner With Ice Nine Kill

New Album Expected For 2012

 

Post Hard-core rockers Close to  Home (CTH) announce their first U.S. tour of 2012.  The band will head out this Spring and will co-headline with Ice Nine Kill with support by For All I Am and One Year Later.  The tour will make stops throughout the Midwest and West Coast (full tour dates below).  Close to Home have been working on their upcoming new album to be released this year through Artery Recordings / Razor & Tie.  The album was recorded with engineer and producer Andrew Wade (A Day to Remember, The Word Alive).

CTH guitarist Josh Wells adds, “After being in the studio for two months we are all super excited to get back out on the road. I can't wait to show people how awesome some of these new songs are live, and how much Andrew killing it vocally.”

Cincinnati based Close to Home formed in 2005 with a shared passion and dream. Calling themselves Close to Home, which reflected their desire to write about real issues that affect everyday life (and also happened to be a Get Up Kids song that Wells loved).  The original line up was put to the test as they suffered a tragic loss in 2006 when bassist Brad Andress passed from his battle with Cancer.  In late 2011 lead vocalist Nick Stiens departed the band.  The current lineup is Andrew DeNeef (Vocals), Josh Wells (Guitar), JJ Cooper (Guitar), Derek Foust (Bass) and Travis Hartman (Drums).  CTH has released three studio EPs, one live EP and two full length albums to date- One Chance, One Time EP (Self-released, 2006), Standby EP (Self-released, April, 2008), Let It Be Known EP (Self-released, October, 2009).  The band’s live EP, Legends Live On was self-released in 2008 and was the last live show that bassist Brad Andress played before his death.  In 2010 CTH signed with Artery Recordings/Razor & Tie and in 2011 released their first full length label album, Never Back Down.  The album was produced by Tom Denney (formerly of A Day To Remember) and co-producer Eric Tuffendsam.  The album combined elements of heavy post-hardcore and metalcore with pop punk, leading to a melodic hardcore sound.  Close to Home has toured across the United States with bands such as Silverstein, Dance Gavin Dance, I Set My Friends On Fire, In Fear and Faith and We Came as Romans as well as on The Vans Warped Tour.
