Daisy Rock artists Anti-Hero on tour in the U.S.
Daisy Rock artists Anti-Hero are embarking on their first ever U.S. tour starting in May, with dates scheduled in Michigan, Ohio, Boston, Philadelphia, New York City, Buffalo, and Minnesota.
Since releasing their debut album, Unpretty, in June 2005, Anti-Hero has been gaining attention from both music fans and critics throughout Canada and the United States. In support of Unpretty, Anti-Hero booked a successful tour across Ontario, along with radio interviews, television appearances, and scheduled stops at both Wakefest and Vans Warped Tour 2005. Within the first two months of being on the road, Anti-Hero sold 90% of the copies of their first run of CDs at their live shows, resulting in a worldwide distribution deal with Addictive Records/Fontana North/Universal Music. Under this distribution deal, their CD will be available in all major and independent music retailers cross Canada as well as on hundreds of major digital music services throughout the world.
Anti-Hero has been nominated as Best Local Alt/Punk Band in their hometown of London, Ontario for two years in a row, as well as receiving the Reader\'s Choice Favourite Band of 2005 from The Cover Zone. They were also nominated as Listener\'s Choice Best Indie Rock Band of 2006 by Triple X Radio, the hardkore radio station based out of Germany, and were recently honored as the 2006 Best Rock Band in their hometown of London, Ontario by SCENE Magazine. In addition to their U.S. tour dates, Anti-Hero has been selected to perform at both Canadian Music Week 2006 and this year\'s upcoming NXNE. They have also been recognized in two editions of Canadian Musician.
Anti-Hero\'s music can be heard on countless internet and college radio stations worldwide in Canada, the UK, the States, Brazil, Germany and Spain. Their debut single, "Unpretty" reached the #4 spot on Canadian college radio and tracks off of their album have placed within the Top Ten on many internet stations such as Triple X Radio, Evolving Artist Radio, Songplanet, Pulse Rated Radio, and more.
Their independently-produced music video for ï¿½Unprettyï¿½ is receiving airplay on internet and local television broadcasts such as MSN Video, MySpace Video, & CKCO Television.
