‘TO WRITE LOVE ON HER ARMS’ Presents “CHILDREND OF FIRE” TOUR In Partnership With Texas Rock Band “Oh, Sleeper”

 

September 19, 2011 – Los Angeles, CA – Fort Worth’s explosive heavy rock band OH, SLEEPER has announced a partnership with non-profit organization To Write Love on Her Arms to present the Children of Fire Tour, which kicks off October 27 in Little Rock, AR. The band will be joined by Greeley Estates, Ten After Two, At the Skylines and Secrets touring in support. Tickets are on-sale today (links are below).

“We are extremely excited to partner up with TWLOHA for this upcoming tour,” says guitarist James Erwin. “It’s an organization we’ve loved and supported for years now, so it’s cool to come together with them to help get the word out to our fans about TWLOHA. It’s an important issue, so hopefully this will help bring light to a situation that plagues so many youth today.”

“Over the past five years, we have found a home within the greater community of music,” adds TWLOHA spokesman Chad Moses. “Here, we have had some of our greatest opportunities to engage individuals and grow incredible friendships. We met the guys in OH, SLEEPER a few years ago at Cornerstone Festival, and they have since become some of our most visible supporters in the hard music scene. At TWLOHA, we value working closely with music we believe in, but beyond that we also get to work with musicians we firmly stand behind. I remember vividly an interaction between Micah and a young fan directly following their set at Cornerstone. The young man approached an exhausted Micah and simply expressed gratitude for the honest nature of their debut album When I Am God. He said that some of those songs kept him going and were the reason he did not die by suicide. Immediately, Micah stood up, gave the fan a bear hug and said, “We are honored to have you as a fan. Thank you for staying alive! Never give up!””

“Who wouldn’t want to collaborate with guys like that?,” continues Moses. “They are creating music because they have a message to spread and fans they love. It is clear that we are all working toward the same thing: spreading hope. OH, SLEEPER’s creativity and personality have had TWLOHA’s support for years now, and this Fall, we have the chance to work together on their tour for the release of Children of Fire. The new album exists in a world full of questions, a world which many of us relate to on some level. The hope with this tour is to start a conversation and let the people in the audience know they are not alone, that their story is important and their life matters, that hope is real and help exists.”

OH, SLEEPER unleashed their third studio album, Children of Fire, digitally on September 6 and will release the album on CD on September 27. The much anticipated release has set message boards, blogs and websites on fire with grassroots buzz and has garnered rave reviews across the board.
