Medical Treason will be helping to bring you one of the freshest and most innovative tours of the year. Medical Treason is excited to be working on the still untitled fall tour for XO, Shanti, Paper Mache and Smile Smile. This tour will be an acoustic event like none other you have ever experienced. The tour will be hitting a large portion of the United States and will be joined on special shows by some of the bands best friends and some very special guests. MEET THE BANDS: XO XO is the side project of Say Anything guitarists Jeff and Jake Turner. XO is a fresh look on music and will leave you with lasting memories after every performance. Shanti is fresh off the 2008 Van's Warped Tour and is hitting the acoustic road to make her mark on you. You can download the acoustic version of her entire album Stranger Days right HERE. Paper Mache In a culture of predictability and contrived emotion, honesty is the currency by which art is valued. Paper Mache has built its reputation on lyrical substance and continues to build a national fan base through extensive touring and inventive promotion. This Washington-based five-piece creates a continually evolving sound that embraces the acoustic sparsity of acts like Bright Eyes as well as the rich textures of bands like Death Cab for Cutie and Brand New. Smile Smile Smile Smile plays an infectious blend of Folk/Pop and rock and comes to you straight from the heart of Texas.
I'm currently working with TVCTY (formerly Taking Out McKinley) on a 4 song demo which may become an EP.
