California-based rockers Adema and Earshot have been added to the lineup for this year’s SnoCore Rock tour, which, as previously reported, will also feature Alien Ant Farm, Fenix TX, and Glassjaw. Earshot will open all dates of the tour, set to begin Feb. 15 in Providence, R.I., while Adema will join the cast at a March 1 show in New York and play through the trek’s completion. Alterna-rock duo Local H will also briefly join the tour for the first three dates.
The outing, which is running concurrently with the similarly themed SnoCore Icicle Ball, currently has dates scheduled through March 30 in Las Vegas. More dates are expected to be added next week.
At each stop on the run, 25,000 free SnoCore CD samplers — featuring tracks from artists such as Custom, Mad At Gravity, Dilated Peoples, OTEP, Cyclefly, Unwritten Law, Greenwheel, Third Strike, Finch, the Movie Life, the Starting Line, and Diecast — will be given away at merchandise booths.
Adema’s eponymous Arista debut album bowed at No. 27 on The Billboard 200 last September. The album’s second single, “The Way You Like It” is No. 21 on Billboard’s Modern Rock Tracks chart this week, and No. 24 on the Mainstream Rock Tracks survey.
