The Expendables Announce Summer Tour

Looking for a great way to celebrate the summer season?  Well then look no further than the reggae-infused rock sounds of, Pearl artist, Adam Patterson and The Expendables!  In a matter of mere weeks, The Expendables will embark on their US summer tour, kicking off at The Belmont in Austin, TX, on June 21st, and winding its way around the country for the remaining 6 weeks before coming to a close at The Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, in Las Vegas, NV, on August 8th.  The Expendables have been spending the majority of their current days locked away at Jungle Town Studios in Oakland, CA, writing and recording their forthcoming album which is due later this year.  A full list of dates for their upcoming summer tour can be found below.

Pearl artist, Adam Patterson, will be taking his familiar position behind The Expendables throughout this lengthy summer excursion, bringing his signature blend of melodic and heavy groove, throughout the band’s softer tunes, as well as his ferocious and hard hitting rock drumming mastery.  Upon joining the Pearl roster back in 2011, Adam quickly turned to the innovative excellence of Pearl’s Reference Series line of drums, opting for the individual characteristics found in each shell, as described in the Reference Series Recipe, to provide the crisp highs, warm mids, and thunderous lows.  Adams full specs are as follow:

Reference Series:
Scarlet Fade (155)

22x18 bass drum
10x8 tom
12x9 tom
16x13 tom
14x6.5 Reference Series snare drum
