Stick To Your Guns Announce North American Tour With Counterparts, Terror, Year Of The Knife, Sanction

Stick To Your Guns will bring hardcore to North America this summer.

Post-shoey, the Cali hardcore punks prove why they're still one of the best bands in the game, with a pummelling set of older classics and hits from last year's True View. It's truly exhilarating.

Pure Noise Records has put together a brand new tour for hardcore kids to feast on. Headlining this stacked bill is Orange County-based straightedge hardcore act Stick to Your Guns, making this their first headlining tour in the States since a mini-tour supporting the release of True View. Main support will be provided by beloved Canadian metalcore band Counterparts, as well as Californian hardcore legends Terror. Opening up this tour will be new talents to the Pure Noise Records roster, Sanction and Year of the Knife.

As of now, there’s no news on whether or not any of these bands are going to have new records out in time for the tour, but be sure to keep your eyes peeled, especially on Year of the Knife and Sanction. Year of the Knife just put out their Ultimate Aggression compilation -- which stitches together everything they’ve released thus far -- on Pure Noise Records earlier in April. Sanction is fresh off of their tour supporting Knocked Loose and deathcore legends The Acacia Strain.
