The AlmostAs the acclaimed rock group prepare to release their third album FEAR INSIDE OUR BONES on June 11 via Tooth & Nail/RED Distribution, the group has announced they’ll kick off a U.S. headlining tour on June 6. For the month-long trek, which includes stops in Denver, Seattle, Los Angeles and more, has partnered with GIGG.com to launch “ Tournament” which allows local musicians the chance to open up for the band every night on the tour. Starting today, musicians in each city can upload performance videos directly via the Gigg.com platform according to the deadlines listed:  http://gigg.com/tournaments/The_Almost. Fans can vote to select each winning act and all winners will be notified one week in advance of their performance date. Following the headlining run, THE ALMOST will join Relient K as direct support for a 15-city trek through the Midwest and east coast (see the full itinerary below).

In online news, THE ALMOST have premiered their propulsive first single “I’m Down” which will hit Alternative and Rock radio starting June 5.  Listen and watch the lyric video below:

FEAR INSIDE OUR BONES is collecting early praise from the media. Alternative Press hailed,On The Almost’s first album in nearly four years, Aaron Gillespie and his bandmates fire up the Wayback Machine to the ‘70s, employing fuzzed-out rock ‘n’ roll that’s big on bluesy licks and light on studio magic. There’s a visceral energy to ‘I’m Down’ and ‘Never Be Like You,’ the result of The Almost tracking these songs live and in rapid-fire fashion, and the title track might be the darkest song Gillespie has penned in quite some time” (May). Elsewhere, Revolver magazine declared, “Candid lyrics like this paired with the band’s decision to record completely live make for its most raw and organic album yet. Fear Inside Our Bones delivers thundering rhythms and crunchy guitars fans will love, at times even tapping into the pop-rock effervescence of the Foo Fighters” (April). The preview track “Ghost,” which echoes with unbridled blues intensity before converging on a divinely heavy refrain is gathering steam. Listen to “Ghost” below:
