Facing The Gallows: Dead Mindset album launch tour
The tour is – as the promoter’s name divines – a jam packed affair! Adding to the unique character of the thing, it will also form up part of the launch tour for Facing The Gallows‘ much anticipated full-length, Dead Mindset.
“So Secrets in South Africa hey, what can I say. I’m beyond stoked. I’ve always followed Rise Records bands closely and when I stumbled upon their video for ‘Ready for Repair’ I was instantly hooked; but never did I imagine that I’d be able to see them in my own back yard, let alone co-launch our albums together.” ~ Bryan Binneman (vocals, Facing The Gallows)
Tickets are priced modestly at between R170 and R190 (or R250 at the door) and can be purchased via Webtickets. Other stakeholders supporting the tour and Rocking For Rhinos include Monster Energy, In.It Apparel, HellFire Whiskey, Abby Cottages and COPA Campus Of Performing Arts.
