THE BLACKOUT AGENCY IN ASSOCIATION WITH MUSIC PLANET & LIFE FM PROUDLY PRESENTS

SAVING GRACE
2012 NEW ZEALAND TOUR

WITH SPECIAL GUESTS ON SELECTED DATES:
DECLARATION A.D. , EAST OF EDEN, OUT COLD A.D.

The highly anticipated return to venues across New Zealand from prolific east coast hardcore stalwarts Saving Grace is finally here.

A 13 date trek across both the North and South Island markets will see the band's most extensive national headline tour in over two years.

Having fromed in 2005 in Gisborne City, Saving Grace have gone on to become one of the country's most successful heavy music exports.

Since their inception, the band have signed multiple international record deals, release three highly successful studio albums and in 2011 signed with Los Angeles based management company Super Hero Artist Management (Throwdown, Bleeding Through, Tiger Army, Demon Hunter).

Saving Grace's career has seen the band's reach grow from small hometown shows to headlining numerous tours and international festival appearances sharing the stage and touring with some of the biggest names in international metal and hardcore including: Misery Signals, Darkest Hour, Emmure, As I Lay Dying, Underoath, Parkway Drive, Bring Me The Horizon, Stick To Your Guns, Winds of Plague, The Chariot and many more. 

Saving Grace will be touring in support of their third full length release 'The King is Coming' released in November 2011 on Facedown Records, a blistering and ferociously heavy album and the band's most focussed work to date. The album was produced and engineered by kiwi metal guru Zorran Mendonsa (Subtract, Cobra Khan, Sticky Filth) with editing and mastering by original Machine Head guitarist Logan Mader (Soulfly, Machine Head, Devildriver, Divine Heresy, Gojira).

Known for their highly energetic and crowd engaging live shows, Saving Grace look forward to their long awaited return across home country pastures before embarking on their seventh set of Australian dates where they will co-headline Sydney's Big Exo Day festival alongside Impending Doom and Anberlin (USA) and play feature sideshows in NSW.

Direct support on the New Zealand tour comes in a triple-tiered regional format from three exciting, up and coming acts.

The upper north island dates will feature Auckland City's East of Eden, who have been creating excitement across the country with their post-hardcore influenced sound and bold, uplifting lyrics. East of Eden have supported USA's Attack Attack, Pierce The Veil and A Plea For Purging among many others and have featured at Parachute Festival.

Lower North Island support comes from Wellington City's Declaration AD, a passionate and honest raw hardcore band who has gone from strength to strength over the past years. Having recently released their debut record 'I can't Ignore' the band has gone on to support legendary American hardcore acts such as Terror and Trapped Under Ice.

The South Island dates will see Saving Grace accompanied by good friends Out Cold AD, who have been working extremely hard winning over fans across New Zealand with their passionate and energetic brand of heavy hardcore.

Having endured through many hard times throughout the Christchurch earthquakes, the band pressed on creating and releasing music and playing many nationwide dates. Their brand new record 'This is Survival' is available this August in stores and oline through Australian hardcore / punk label 'Pee Records'.

Do not miss the opportunity to witness one of the most extensive and exciting New Zealand hardcore tours at a venue near you.
