Never Say Die! Festival featuring

Architects + Despised Icon + Horse The Band + As Blood Runs Black + Oceano + I Wrestled A Bear Once + The Ghost Inside

Having continually pushed the envelope within the realms of the aggresive music scenes to bring audiences all over Europe unmissable tours and exciting new talent from around the world, Avocado Booking will be teaming up with Europes leading purveyors of lifestyle apparel Imperial Clothing to unleash the IMPERIAL NEVER SAY DIE! CLUB TOUR 2009 on unsuspecting European audiences.

2009 will be chased out on it's heels by these motley crew of sonic slaughterers:

DESPISED ICON (headliner mainland)
ARCHITECTS (headliner UK)
OCEANO (rotating slot)

Bringing their ferocious brand of extreme metal to the table, Montreal titans DESPISED ICON will be showing European audiences once again why their corrosive brand of death metal, hardcore and grind will destroy every venue on this tour, their latest CD is only one aspect of what this band are about, live they are truly brutality incarnate! They had this to say about their involvement: "We’re excited to be coming back to Europe on this year’s “Never Say Die” tour.We're finally going to play a few new tracks for you guy's, we'll be sharing the stage with some awesome bands. We can't wait to be a part of this tour!"

The UK's very own ARCHITECTS will be headlining the UK leg of the tour melting faces with tracks from their blisteringly acclaimed record (Century Media).  They're no strangers to Never Say Die! and had this to say about this years ferocious outing: "We're stoked to be part of Never Say Die again! Last year was arguably the best tour we've ever been part of so to do it all again as co-headliners is truly awesome. We won't have played a headline show in the UK for 9 months by the time the tour comes around, so we hope to see some familiar faces out at the shows, and Europe is always amazing for us too. We can't wait!"

Masters of sonic skullfuckery HORSE THE BAND are no strangers to these European shores and have been genre leaders of experimental metalcore with several releases under their belt, not to mention a highly anticipated new album this year on Vagrant Records.

In the last few years AS BLOOD RUNS BLACK have blown up to be one of the heaviest metalcore bands from California, they’ve hit almost every festival and city with their breakdown ridden metallic assault. Coupled with a new record about to drop, this band is white hot.

A fresh new arrival to Never Say Die!  female-fronted IWRESTLEDABEARONCE recently signed to Century Media. The buzz within the scene about this band is only rivaled by their knack for blending scathing metallic ferocity with experimental keyboards and vocals.

Chicago five piece OCEANO have gained attention from all over by pummeling speakers and eardrums and melting faces with their volatile Earache Records debut.

Rounding out the package is the newest face on the scene: THE GHOST INSIDE have shown the metalcore scene that a good work ethic can earn you legions of fans around the world. With a record chock full of passion and anger, as well as critical acclaim, keep an eye on these rising titans!

"This year we're giving way to the more extreme side of what's out there" says Avocado co-founder Marco Walzel. "There are a lot of talented bands out there and we feel that this years Never Say Die has the abolute cream of the crop, it's going to destroy every town on this tour and we're stoked to have Imperial Clothing onboard to take things up a notch over previous Never Say Die outtings!"

"Avocado are at the very core of the music scene that we here at Imperial care very strongly about", says Martin Boettcher of Imperial Clothing. "We jumped at the opprtunity to work with them on what is sure to be the start of an exciting involvement with the Never Say Die tours!"

This Autumn is set to slay with this powerhouse of a line-up! Grab your tickets and mark the dates in your calander and get in the pit for what will be the skull crucnhing tour of the year!
