(May 27th, 2008 - Austin, TX) The month of May typically means one thing to Austin, Texas-based metal band POWDERBURN - the time has come once again for the spring edition of the JAGERMEISTER MUSIC TOUR. The band is fortunate to have a sponsorship from the hallowed beverage of choice for metalheads everywhere, and JAGER is bringing the metal to Texas yet again.
POWDERBURN is pleased to announce that the band has two dates on this year's JAGERMEISTER MUSIC TOUR - May 28th and 29th with HATEBREED and 3 INCHES OF BLOOD. The 28th show will also feature fellow east coast natives, TYPE O NEGATIVE.
"Needless to say, this may be one of my favorite Jager tours yet!", says drummer Patrick Swift, "HATEBREED are legends of the scene and I've been a fan of TYPE O NEGATIVE since I first picked up drumsticks . . . this one's gonna be trouble!"
"It's always fun to play on a tour that features diverse bands. I've seen Hatebreed and Type O countless times and they both put on great, yet, vastly different shows. I think Powderburn will fit quite nicely, in our own way, among these bands" added singer/guitarist Ken Lockman.
May 28th, the band joins the JAGERMEISTER MUSIC TOUR in San Antonio at Sunset Station, and then makes the journey to El Paso for the show on the 29th at Club 101. POWDERBURN leaves the tour at that point, but will be swinging through Lubbock to play a headlining show on the way home, to be held at the Lone Star Events Center on May 30th.
