German musical hybrid, We Butter The Bread With Butter (WBTBWB) have announced a North American headline tour for 2014. The 25 date trek (to happen in Feb and March) will find the band hitting both coasts and comes on the heels of their highly successful U.S. tour which just wrapped this fall. Joining them on the upcoming dates is Lions Lions (Century Media Records) and Honour Crest (Rise Records). Among the stops is an appearance at the highly-anticipated South By So What?! festival in Texas.
The band is touring in support of their latest full-length offering (and first official album release in North America) Goldkinder. The album, which boasts mixing assistance by the legendary Stefan Glaumann (Rammstein, Apocalyptica), takes WBTBWB's distinct heavy rock sound interjected with elements of metal and electro-pop to new heights. It's a sound that has won over U.S. heavy music tastemakers like Metal Sucks, HeavyMetal.About.com, Revolver Magazine, Metal Underground, Metal Insider, Guitar World, and CraveOnline, with the latter two premiering music videos in support of the album.
A true testament to the band's appeal in North America, though, was made evident when the full-length Der Tag an dem die Welt unterging cracked the iTunes Top 50 upon its digital release in 2010. This result is even more impressive when considering that this feat was accomplished without a domestic label, English lyrics or any U.S. appearance by the band.
