Earthtone9 are looking for acts to complete the bill at the KINGSTON and BRIGHTON shows. any interested bands can post (or ask their fans to post) on the Earthtone9 wall at http://www.facebook.com/earthtone9 - tell us why you wanna do the show. the most exciting/amusing/intriguing posts will get you the show!
After a decade in dormancy Earthtone9 are currently enjoying an explosive renaissance which has seen new material released (April's 'For Cause and Consequence' EP) as well as uncharacteristically gleeful live performances. Indeed, while Earthtone9 made tentative steps back into the live arena in the second half of 2010 with performances at the Sonisphere and Damnation festival, the response has been anything but uncertain. The old fanbase was still very much alive alongside a new set of fans, all eager to see whether the old songs stood the test of time and whether this progressive outfit could still hold such an overused title. They didn't disappoint.
Where once EARTHTONE9 were the UK's torchlight battling through a tedious nu-metal fog, they now return to join a metal scene thriving with ingenuity and inventiveness, much of which had its way paved by the band's output around the turn of the millennium. The new material has only confirmed why they are held in such high esteem.
