(hed)P.E. Announces US Tour!

The leaders of "The Truth Movement" (hed)P.E. and Cleveland's pioneering alterna-metal collective Mushroomhead will embark on the "Hed To Head Tour" this spring as part of a co-headlining run sponsored by Jägermeister. Both bands' energetic live performances and commanding stage presence will make this trek one of the hottest underground music tours of the new year, and proves be be a great starting point for the band's campaign trail.

With their recent studio release, “Truth Rising”, which hit stores in October of last year, (hed)PE’s stock is in high demand, making the Hed to Head Tour the band’s inaugural US trek since the album’s release. "Truth Rising" has been considered a hit amongst the (hed)PE faithful, debuting at position No. 98 on The Billboard 200 chart, selling near 5,000 copies within the first week of its release. The new album also marks the first studio appearance by Pearl artist, Jeremiah “Trauma” Stratton, who joined the band shortly after their January 2009 release, “New World Orphans”. Throughout the past 2 years Jeremiah, and his Pearl Birch (VBL) kit, have traveled the world around, bringing down the house, night after night, providing the explosive energy and maddening aggression behind (hed)PE’s high-octane sound. Currently rocking a Pearl Vision Birch (VBL) kit with a 10x8 rack tom, 12x9 rack tom, 14x14 floor tom, 16x16 floor tom, and a punchy 22x18 kick drum, Jeremiah is able to abstract higher and brighter tones from the VBX’s 100% birch shells.
