Also make sure to visit www.thepowerlessrise.com to check out their headline tour starting April 29th with Demon Hunter, blessthefall, and War of Ages as support. Their upcoming CD 'The Powerless Rise' is out May 11th on Metal Blade Records.

Many of Cool Tour's notable artists had a few words to say about this exciting new festival! "After taking last summer off to focus on writing new material, we'll be back out this year in support of our latest album, 'The Powerless Rise'," states As I Lay Dying guitarist Phil Sgrosso. "We've got a killer line up of bands that share the same passion for heavy music and putting on a great show every night for the fans. You don't want to miss a tour as good as this."

"We're looking forward to get out on the Cool Tour this summer," states Underoath guitarist Tim McTague. "2010 has been a transitional year for Underoath, and we are looking forward to putting our new direction in motion." McTague also adds, "Cool Tour is the perfect place to come out and show everyone what Underoath of the future will sound like."

Tommy Giles Rogers, vocalist of Between The Buried And Me is beyond thrilled. "Somehow, Between The Buried And Me, the un-coolest band on the planet, is part of a tour called Cool Tour. Even though this will not make us become cool, we are stoked to be a part of the tour. Pumped to get back around the U.S. and melt your fucking faces off."

Booking agent Tim Borror of The Agency Group had some final words to say about Cool Tour. "To say I'm excited about Cool Tour this summer would sound too plain and generic. I'm more than excited; it's my honor to work with the people putting this thing together behind the scenes and my honor to work with these bands. I already have great relationships with a few of these bands and I'm at the beginning of starting great relationships with the rest of them. Good times with good people making great music. Fuckin' A, the Cool Tour!"

Biography
YEAR FORMED: 2004
HOME TOWN: Phoenix, AZ
MEMBERS:
Beau Bokan - Vocals
Mikey Frisby - Guitar
Eric Lambert - Guitar
Jared Warth - Bass/vocals
Matt Traynor - Drums

Blessthefall grew out of high school practice sessions between guitarist Mike and drummer Matt, filling out the roster with singer Craig and bassist Jared to form Blessthefall in 2004. They released a three-track EP in mid-2005 and added guitarist Eric to form their current lineup.

Phoenix-area gigs with Greeley Estates and an openly religious orientation got the band local press and a deal with Warner subsidiary, Record Collection. The band then toured with Alesana and Norma Jean across the United States and Canada. Their debut album, 'His Last Walk', was released on April 10, 2007, to mixed reviews.

The band completed the entire 2007 Warped Tour circuit nationwide. Following that, Blessthefall toured with Escape The Fate, LoveHateHero, and Dance Gavin Dance on the Black On Black tour during September and October of 2007.

Blessthefall was also a part of From First To Last's fall headlining tour, entitled "RATHER BE SLAYIN' N00BZ" which kicked off on November 1st, and also featured A Skylit Drive, and Vanna. The band then heads over to the UK with Silverstein. This tour is their first ever UK and European Tour, with their first UK show at the Colchester Arts Centre on Novemeber 16th 2007.
