(NEW YORK, NY) – THROWDOWN have revealed a slew of new details surrounding their upcoming “Brawloween” tour happening later this month. The band has confirmed a touring lineup which is comprised of both familiar faces as well as some guests.
DAVE PETERS (vocals) (Throwdown 2000 – present)
MARK MITCHELL (bass) (Throwdown 2007 – present)
DAVE NASSIE (guitar) (Bleeding Through / ex-No Use For A Name)
TIM “YOGI” WATTS (drums) (Demon Hunter, ex-The Showdown)
“I can’t say I love having a chronically fragmented lineup for Throwdown, but it does leave the door open for cool opportunities like this. I’m VERY happy to be playing these shows with Yogi and Nassie as ‘special guests’ or whatever you want to call them under the circumstances. They’re great guys and equally great musicians. It will be a cool thing for fans of the three bands too, as it’s hard to say if or when we’d share a stage in the future. The only drawback is running the risk of them setting the sound bar too high for the next time we play in our backyard,” says front man Dave Peters.
THROWDOWN will headline the first annual “BRAWLOWEEN,” a brand new tour event which will stretch across the West Coast with support from CARNIFEX, FIRST BLOOD and SUFFOKATE. The band has also made a limited number of prints of the tour poster artwork by illustrator Dave Quiggle shown above. These exclusive prints will only be available at the Chain Reaction show on 10/23, get there early!
The band will mark their first live appearances in nearly two years by presenting a fan-favorite filled set list consisting of material from classic albums like Haymaker (2003) and Vendetta (2005) alongside select tracks from Venom & Tears (2007) and their eOne music debut, Deathless (2009). The album was produced by Mudrock (Avenged Sevenfold) and mixed by Zeuss (Hatebreed) and includes the XM / Sirius smash, “This Continuum.”
The band is an internationally recognized heavy metal band with roots in the hardcore / punk scene. They have toured the world with acts like Killswitch Engage, In Flames, As I Lay Dying, Hatebreed, Chimaira, Korn, Machine Head, Arch Enemy and as part of Vans Warped Tour, Ozzfest and Sounds of the Underground.
THROWDOWN’s “Deathless I” tour took place in November, 2009 and was followed by a spring, 2010 appearance at MusInk with Danzig. Dave Peters hosted MTV2’s “Headbanger’s Ball” which premiered two of the twelve music videos from Deathless which comprise a short film based on the album by Cale Glendening (Demon Hunter).
