(hed)p.e. Takes on the US with Back-to-Back Tours!

The kings of the underground, (hed)p.e. are gearing up for 2 (yes, 2!) US tours, filling the band’s schedule with a plethora of dates, and the dedicated (hed)p.e. faithful with a future tour stop to count down to!  The first tour of (hed)p.e.’s hectic 2013 calendar year kicks off next week with the 2013 “Wake and Bake Sunrise Tour” which will kick off at the Chameleon Room in Oklahoma City on February 16th, before spending the remaining 4 weeks winding its way around the US before coming to a close at New York City’s Webster Hall on March 14th.  However, always striving to give their fans more, (hed)p.e.’s second tour, The Abominationz tour, embarks the following day and will find the band completing their US tour cycle for the following 3 weeks, with the final show taking place back in Oklahoma City, at The Diamond Ballroom, on April 4th. 

Pearl artist, Jeremiah “Trauma” Stratton, has been the backbone of (hed)p.e. since early 2009 and, in part to his explosive and powerful drumming, Trauma has become a fan favorite amongst the (hed)p.e. faithful that pack the venue walls each night. As he has for the last couple of years, Trauma will be tackling both of these tours with his trusty Vision Birch (VBL) drum set, finished in the classic Black Ice Lacquer (234). For more information on Trauma and (hed)p.e., please be sure to visit their official Facebook page at Also be sure to check out the full list of dates for both upcoming tours, which can be found below.  See you on the road Trauma!
