(hed)PE: Out of the Studio and On to the Road

Pearl artist, Jeremiah “Trauma” Stratton and (hed)PE, have been spending the early portion of the summer season practically locked inside Filthy Hands Studios, writing and recording the latest series of underground hits that will be featured on their late-2013 studio release.  With the anticipation building toward this new album, for both the band and their highly devoted fan base, (hed)PE have made the exciting announcement of their first tour supporting the forthcoming recording- a US tour that kicks off this August!  The band will be bringing their high octane and frenzy filled live concert to 20 select cities around the US, starting on August 23rd, at Reverb in Reading, PA, and continuing its way around the country before closing at Ziggy’s in Winston-Salem, NC.  A full list of dates can be found below.

When it comes to rock drumming, there aren’t many more out there that destroy a kit as hard and aggressively as Jeremiah “Trauma” Stratton.  With a brute force that defines passion and excellence, Trauma bashed out (hed)PE’s backbeats with and explosive power that truly put’s Pearl’s quality and durability through the ultimate test.  As he has been since joining the Pearl roster back in early 2009, Trauma will be touring behind his road tested and trusty Vision Birch (VBL) drums, finished in the classic and classy Black Ice lacquer.  Trauma’s specs are as follow:

Vision Birch Lacquer:
Black Ice (234)

22x18 bass drum
10x8 tom
12x9 tom
13x10 tom
14x14 floor tom
