Standby Records Artists MODERN DAY ESCAPE, CLOSE TO HOME and PICTURE ME BROKEN Team up for US Tour

| 4 October 2012 | Reply

Immediately following the end of their tour with Affiance, MODERN DAY ESCAPE andPICTURE ME BROKEN will be joining up with label mates CLOSE TO HOME to take part in the “The Harry Pot-Tour”.  The tour kicks off October 21st in Richmond, VA and runs through November 10th in Temecula, CA.  A complete list of dates can be found below.

MODERN DAY ESCAPE is touring in support of their latest release Under the Gun which came out earlier this year on Standby Records.  MODERN DAY ESCAPE formed in Orlando, Florida in 2006.  After going through various incarnations and lineup changes, MDE solidified their lineup in 2011 with the addition of drummer Sandra Alva (Ex-Black Veil Brides) and guitarist Mark Burn.  The lineup set out to record the album Under the Gun and now they intend to bring it to the masses.

Cincinnati Ohio’s CLOSE TO HOME will be providing direct support on the tour.  CTH has released two EPs (3 mixed, 1 demo) and three full-length albums, Picture Perfect; their major label debut, Never Back Down, which was released on February 15, 2011; and their most recent effort, Momentum, which was released July 31, 2012 via Artery Recordings. CLOSE TO HOME has toured across the United States with bands such as Silverstein, Emery, Dance Gavin Dance, In Fear and Faith and We Came as Romans and took part in 2010 and 2012’s Scream It Like You Mean It tours.

PICTURE ME BROKEN emerged in 2005 under the name “Lane Four” playing classic rock covers as 12 year olds. PICTURE ME BROKEN, however, was truly born when the band landed a spot on a date of Linkin Park’s Projekt Revolution Tour with their songs “Blind and “Live Forever.” PMB defines their sound as melodic hard rock with elements of screamo and post-hardcore. PICTURE ME BROKEN is all about live energy, catchy choruses, and intense breakdowns; ready to take over the music scene with their all energy, genre crossing approach to modern music.  PICTURE ME BROKEN will be releasing a new EP this winter on Standby Records.
