LIGHT THIS CITY offers year-end update
Bay Area thrashers LIGHT THIS CITY have issued a year-end update on the band's MySpace page (http://www.myspace.com/lightthiscity):
"Holy Shit! 2007 Was a fucking beast! Thanks to everyone who came out to our shows, let us crash at their houses, and raised their horns high. Let's do a little recap, eh?
"The year started off with a short tour with our buddies in All That Remains, which was absolutely incredible. We couldn't be more stoked to be going out with those dudes again in February. After that was the video shoot for 'The Unwelcome Savior' with Darren Doane which ended up on regular rotation on MTV2's Headbangers Ball and on Comcast on Demand. That was one of our dreams come true, and we can't thank Darren enough for being so rad and the awesome job done on the video!
"Next was our Southwest 'California Love' tour with The Faceless and Antagonist, which was needless to say, tons of fun. Check out both bands if you haven't already, because they are awesome dudes who shred…hard. In April, we embarked on the 'Radicalysm' tour with Horse the Band, The Number 12 Looks Like You, and So Many Dynamos. All great great bands. So Many Dynamo's new record is going to be huge, so get into them early before they blow up!! That was one of the most interesting and hilariously awesome tours we have ever been a part of. All amazing dudes, we thank Horse the Band for taking us out and being such sweet guys.
"After another run of shows with All That Remains in May, we embarked on our first ever headlining tour, the 'Thrash and Burn' Tour alongside Cerberus, The Funeral Pyre, and Antagonist. That was extremely successful, and we were so pleased with all you metalheads that came and showed your love! Make sure to check out the above mentioned bands, because they are some of the only genuine 'real' metal bands around right now, and they deserve your attention!
"What came next blew our minds completely. The 'Rocket Ride' Tour with Edguy, Into Eternity and Echoes of Eternity. This was our first ever 'really really heavy metal' tour, and it was fucking incredible. The crowds every night were insane, and the bands were so good. Edguy is probably the best band ever, ever.
"Almost lastly was the 'Death by Decibels' tour alongside Vader, Malevolent Creation, Cattle Decapitation, Abigail Williams and Veil of Maya, which most definitely kicked ass. Amazing bands, brutal music, brutal shows. So good. Lastly was this little 5 day run with good friends in Suicide Silence, The Faceless and Oblige entitled the 'Santa Slays Tour.' All these shows were amazing and absolutely packed. The perfect way to end the year. Thanks to all our California friends for showin' up and hangin' out! Definitely made us feel awesome, and ended the year in the best way possible. Raising the horns high in anticipation of 2008!
"What's next for LTC you ask? We are home for January writing our new record which should be out in September 08'. Then we leave for a US tour with All That Remains and Chimaira. We are fucking excited. Plenty more news coming soon. Stay tuned!"
Continuing to support Facing The Thousand, the band's latest release, LIGHT THIS CITY is now hard at work continuing to write material for the band's follow-up, tentatively due out fall 2008 through Prosthetic Records.
