Hollywood Assassyn gets 2 dates with Finger 11

Hollywood Assassyn gets 2 dates with Finger 11

Hey Folks,

Ok so we are just home from 2 dates we did with Finger Eleven.

Turns out that Bryan from Hail the Villain has had to cancel his 9 week tour due to some throat issues he’s had and it has created an opportunity for us. We were offered to take their spot on one date up in Grand Prairie, Alberta at Rock City.

Neither of our two bass players was able to make the show, but we did not want to turn this down. Thankfully a friend of ours Erin Dobbin learned 11 songs 24 hours before we took the stage and we were able to make it happen.

One smashed out window, and a caved in trailer roof later, we arrived to find out that The Envy who was touring with Finger Eleven were stuck back in BC because their van had broken down. Now we were moved from opening of 3 bands, to immediate support. We were also checked out by management and offered to play two further dates, one in Cold Lake, AB and another in Ft. McMurray, AB of which we could only do the one on such short notice and with a replacement bass player who thought he was signing on for 1 gig.

We did take the Cold Lake gig and both shows were amazing. Crowds continue to really eat up our brand of hard rock and merch sales are going strong which is great cause we are so fucking broke!

So, things were kick ass and we really appreciate the boys from Finger Eleven giving us this opportunity.

Next up is an acoustic set by Herc Magnus Feb 20th at The Pint and then the fund raiser hall party so we can hit a tour! Please check our facebook page for those dates!
