House of Blues Entertainment, Decibel Magazine, Metal Blade Records, IndieMerch and RED/'stache Media have joined forces to present the first ever Metal, Arise!

"We are really proud and excited to team up with Decibel, Metal Blade, IndieMerch & RED," Kapp said. "This is a tour that will pair developing metal bands and great local artists. We feel we can create a circuit that benefits metal artists throughout the country. We hope to grow Metal, Arise! into a quarterly tour so we can continue to cultivate great heavy metal talent."
Kelli Malella, vice president, publicity & advertising, Metal Blade Records, said, "When Kelly first brought up the idea of a tour to help develop new metal bands in the states, I immediately wanted to be involved. And not just for the sake of my own bands trying to launch their careers, but for all the bands out there just trying to get a break and land a U.S. tour. The Metal, Arise! Tour has been created by people who truly love our scene and want to give new bands the chance to tour the U.S. and prove themselves to metalheads across the states. The Metal, Arise! Tour also gives local bands the chance to showcase their talents while giving them a shot at getting noticed by labels who are constantly keeping an ear to the ground for up-and-coming local acts to sign. We're keeping ticket costs as low as possible in hopes that you, the fans, will give these bands a chance and check them out."
