Vans and Purevolume.com are teaming up to bring you a Spring 2007 tour with some of rockÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã¢”ž¢s most up-and-coming bands: Love Hate Hero, Vanna, Blinded Black and Morello. The tour will kick off on March 19th in Lewisville, TX and will run until April 28th, ending in Blinded BlackÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã¢”ž¢s hometown of St.Louis, MO.
Vans is providing full retail and online support for this tour including an impressive contest with prizes from all the bands and record labels along with some Vans merchandise and some other goodies. Purevolume.com has come to the table with full online support as well and will be hosting the tourÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã¢”ž¢s official tour page, which will have free streams of songs from all the bands as well as a contest and most updated tour dates.
