Metal-core band goes out on fall headlining tour

Fort Worth, Texas-based metal-core chaps Oh, Sleeper are setting out on a North American headlining tour in support of their latest full-length, Children of Fire, which came out in September on Solid State Records. The tour stars tonight (Oct. 27) in Little Rock, Ark., and finishes up just before Thanksgiving, on Nov. 20 in Waco, Texas. Opening acts on the tour include Greeley Estates, Ten After Two, At the Skylines and Secrets.

The band are joining up with TWLOHA for the tour, a non-profile organization devoted to help give hope to those “dealing with addiction, depression, self injury and thoughts of suicide, while also investing directly into treatment and recovery.” “We are extremely excited to partner up with TWLOHA for this upcoming tour,” guitarist James Erwin said in a release. “It’s an organization we’ve loved and supported for years now, so it’s cool to come together with them to help get the word out to our fans about TWLOHA. It’s an important issue, so hopefully this will help bring light to a situation that plagues so many youth today.”

Vocalist Micah Kinard recently told Audio Ink Radio that Children of Fire is “the most in-depth concept album we’ve done yet. It’s a full story from start to finish, and every song acts as a chapter in the story. It basically follows two characters through a post-apocalyptic setting where God and satin destroy each other in battle, and now there’s no fear of hell and no reward of heaven. It follows these two characters as they watch humanity tear itself apart, and they try to find out their own faith through that time.” Read the full interview, here.
