Onesidezero European Tour Cancelled
January 19, 2008
Onesidezeroís upcoming European tour, alongside Adema and Re:Ignition, has been cancelled due to personal reasons within the Adema camp. The band has released the following statement:
"Things like this happen and it sucks! Of course we're all bummed out, but Tiefdruck Musik, our German label, our manager, and Onesidezero have worked really hard to make this happen," commented drummer Rob Basile. "We're not looking at this as a complete cancellation, but an opportunity for all bands to regroup and reconvene at a later date. We're still hyped to get there!"
"While Adema, Onesidezero, and Re:Ignition will not be fulfilling the February and March '08 dates scheduled in Europe, we have intentions to revisit these tour plans sometime in the near future," added Onesidezero manager Shawna Morey. "Tiefdruck-Musik, Onesidezero's European label, has been very supportive of all artists involved, and we're looking forward to a long lasting relationship and all overseas touring opportunities to come."
Onesidezero is currently supporting their recently released Ulrich Wild (Static-X, Stabbing Westward, Taproot) produced sophomore album, which was released through Corporate Punishment Records. The album is the long awaited follow-up to the bandís critically acclaimed 2001 debut 'Is This Room Getting Smaller', which saw the group tour with the likes of Incubus, 311, Static-X, and Soulfly.

A divine covergence of great musical minds and somewhat non-congruent influences that has blossomed in to a band, known as Re:Ignition. Dedicated to music, every show is performed with energy, energy that spills into the audience creating an atmosphere which few groups ever achieve. One listen and you'll know that the guys in Re:Ignition are driven. They believe in the music they write. The band prides itself on creating an atmosphere of emotional extremes that sonically illustrate the highs and lows of the human condition, connecting with their listeners in a most uncommon, intimate way. With a burgeoning fanbase spanning the nation, The band is fronted by vocalist,Dave Moore, guitarists Steev Esquivel(Skinlab)& Tim Howell(Fueled,Sacrilege BC). The rhythm section is rounded out by the rock solid combination of Snake AKA Burl Blakk (Skinlab,Skrew) on bass guitar and Mark Hernandez on drums. The end result is a style that is totally fresh, but with intimations of influences from music of both the past and present. Re:Ignition has been favorably compared to many notable musicians, including Soungarden, Tool, Deftones,Jeff Buckley, Radiohead,and QOTSA, but finally the band's commitment to the creation of intensely memorable songs erases all comparisons and presents the listener with something entirely new.....RE:Ignition
