Burning Brides To Kick Off North American Tour



Fresh off a stint as the opening act for A Perfect Circle, hard rock trio Burning Brides is hitting the road again for a headlining tour in support of their second album, Leave No Ashes. The two-month tour kicks off on July 19 in New Orleans, making stops along the west coast before heading east, finishing off with a show in Atlanta on August 31. The Philly-based Brides also have a July 15 hometown show and an August 15 Warped Tour performance in Pontiac, Michigan. Boston punk quintet the Explosion will be joining the Brides as the tour’s opening act. Leave No Ashes, which is the follow-up to the band’s 2001 debut album Fall of the Plastic Empire, landed in stores on June 29 via V2 Records. The album was co-produced by George Drakoulious (who has previously collaborated with the Black Crowes and Tom Petty) and features guest appearances by Roger Manning, former Screaming Trees frontman Mark Lanegan and Mike Watt.
