Middle Class Rut To Tour As Support Act For Alice In Chains

After putting the finishing touches on their as-yet-untitled debut album due later this year on Bright Antenna, Sacramento's Middle Class Rut will be supporting Alice In Chains on their upcoming sold out US trek with a brief stop in Austin for SXSW. "We're really excited for the opportunity to tour with AIC," says drummer Sean Stockham. "We've been huge fans since we were kids, and never would have thought 15 years ago when I was listening to Dirt that I'd be in a band that would tour with Alice in Chains. We can't wait to get in front of their crowds and see how they respond to a little audio sodomy. Should be a good time!"

The band has been very busy in the studio over the past few months recording and plan to release their full length debut on Bright Antenna Records this summer. Their mini-LP 25 Years was released last year to critical acclaim, building up the anticipation for their full-length. Alternative Press bestowed 4.5 (out of 5) stars and said they sounded "like Rage Against The Machine slammed into Jane's Addiction MC Rut are a far more dynamic and exciting beast than this comparison suggests." The band has created quite a buzz for their intense live performances which were showcased most recently on tour supporting Social Distortion as well as big festivals like Reading, Leeds, Rock AM and the Download Festival. It promises to be a busy year for this group from Sacramento, CA.
