Columbia, SC hard-rockers Crossfade have announced a summer headlining tour beginning June 1st in Knoxville, TN through July 1st in Charlotte, NC in support of the band's emotionally charged new single "Dear Cocaine," soon to be released. Crossfade will be joined by fellow Columbia band Weaving the Fate, as well as Candlelight Red from Williamsport, PA. Weaving the Fate's current cover of "Rack City" was co-produced by Crossfade's guitarist, Les Hall and is currently climbing the active rock chart. Tickets for the upcoming tour go on sale this Friday, April 13th and are available at www.crossfadeband.com. Please see below for a list of tour dates, with more to be announced this week.

"Dear Cocaine" is the 3rd single from Crossfade's We All Bleed and is a tell-all track that delves deep into a personal and emotional story of battling addiction. The song follows "Prove You Wrong" and "Killing Me Inside," which reached 16 on the active rock chart.

Crossfade released their third studio album We All Bleed on June 21st, 2011. After three years in the making, the new album explores lyrical themes of betrayal and isolation-a Crossfade trademark-but there's also more than a hint of renewal and resolution.

"We All Bleed shows the group used the time off to open some new sonic vistas beyond the meat-and-potatoes approach of its first two albums. The muscle is still there, but We All Bleed explores darker themes and incorporates electronics, more orchestrations and keyboards, and epic arrangements. A welcome return." - Revolver

"Crossfade cannot be stopped. The band has returned with We All Bleed, the best album they've ever recorded. The album delivers the radio-ready hooks they're famous for, but this time out the performances are much more intense." - AOL Noisecreep

The album's 10 tracks, produced by the band and mixed by renowned producer Ben Grosse, maintain the sonic thunderclap of Crossfade's previous efforts, while propelling its guitar-grinding signature with a tapestry of orchestration and programming, and a flourish of keyboards, thanks to the addition of guitarist Les Hall to the permanent line-up, alongside vocalist Ed Sloan and bassist Mitch James.
