ddrum Artist Relations News
By: Felix Deluna ddrum Artist Relations
This is the first of a new series of blogs, posted by yours truly, Felix DeLuna, ddrum artist rep. The idea behind it is simple, create a timely update in regard to the various projects our many ddrum artists are up to. A quick and informal look into one of the greatest drum rosters in the world!
My first order of business, congratulations to Thomas Noonan and his band, 36Crazyfists, as they prepare to embark on their first ever, headlining tour, in support of their new Ferret Music release: Collisions and Castaways. First stop on the tour, September 16th in Seattle, Washington. Visit their MySpace page for more info.
Just wrapping up the first leg of the American Carnage Tour, we have Dave Lombardo of Slayer and Shawn Drover of Megadeth. Expect more metal than your mama's kettle, when leg two kicks off on September 24th, in Dallas, Texas. They will be joined on this leg, by longtime ddrum trigger endorser, Charlie Benante and Anthrax. This brings together, the original tour line up, from the 1991 "Clash of the Titans" tour. More info on Slayer's website as well as, Megadeth and of course, the Anthrax site.
On the R&B front, longtime ddrum endorser, Isaac Richardson, and his band 10deepXperience have hit number 5 on the pop charts, and number 2 on the R&B charts with their new single: "Love Elevator". Bam brings it like few others, so hit up a 10deep show, when they roll thru a town near you. As usual, more info to be had on their FaceBook page.
Finally, no ddrum update would be complete, without an update on Vinnie Paul. Vinnie, and the boys in Hellyeah, have been on the road solid, since late April, and no signs of letting up. They kicked off their tour in ddrum's very own hometown of Tampa Florida, and have blazed a trail thru the US, Europe, and Australia. They can currently be found on Rockstar Energy Drink's Uproar tour, headlining the Jagermiester stage. Plans have them heading back across the pond, later this year, to give them a little taste of Texas flavored metal. See, Hell Yeah's website for more tour dates as well as videos and interviews.
That’s it for now, stay tuned to www.ddrum.com for more on our stable of artists! ROLL!
