Fresh off their singing to Pure Noise Records, Stick To Your Guns have announced a fall headlining tour. The Better Ash Than Dust Tour runs September 9th through October 2nd, with support from Stray From The Path, Expire, and labelmates Knocked Loose.
VIP tickets can be purchased right now at showstubs.com/styg, and tickets for the general public go on sale July 22nd at 10am.
The band also released a new song, “Universal Language,” featuring guest vocals from Brendan Murphy of COUNTERPARTS, along with a very important message from vocalist Jesse Barnett:
We weren’t going to release this song until a later date but we decided that this would be a perfect time with what’s happening right now in America that has everyone’s attention.
There is a problem in our country with how people in black and other communities of color are treated by law enforcement. As a white kid it is impossible for me to relate to this. Sure, I can spend all day imagining what it may be like, but the bottom line is I have not been met with even an ounce of the violence or hate that these communities have become accustomed to. I am a privileged individual and I won’t be guilty of it anymore. I will recognize my privilege and I will use it to stand against these obvious injustices that take place everyday.
You can listen to “Universal Language” below, and read the full message from Jesse along with lyrics to the song, here.
Stick To Your Guns are also expected to release a new EP later this year. Be sure to check back here for updates.
