The Carrier joins Deathwish Inc. roster

Official press release: The Carrier are one of Boston's newest and most interesting hardcore bands. Their brand of powerful melodic hardcore is the next chapter of evolution in their genre. Emoting with a goose-bump inducing fervor unlike any other band out there today. In the summer of 2007, The Carrier released their debut 7"EP on the Words Of War label. This amazing three song 7"EP caught the attention of the hardcore community worldwide, paving the way for the band to tour throughout the year. In late 2007, The Carrier teamed up with Rock Vegas Records (COA, Roses Never Fade) to release their first proper album titled "One Year Later". With this album The Carrier truly shined, pushing their approach to new heights, and solidifying their standing as one of the best melodic hardcore bands to surface in ages. The Carrier will release their new 7"EP, "No Love Can Save Me" on Deathwish Inc. soon. Recorded by Jay Maas The Getaway Group, the release cries out with impassioned vocals and towering guitar melodies that sway and swell before crashing forth with explosive energy. Showing the band at their most emotionally charged, while also hinting at the creative greatness that is looming on their horizon. Pre-ordering info, Audio Player, and release date for The Carrier "No Love Can Save Me" 7"EP will be posted shortly. 5/16 Waterbury, CT @ Bobby Allens As One Fest 5/17 Waterbury, CT @ Bobby Allens As One Fest 5/18 Waterbury, CT @ Bobby Allens As One Fest 5/19 Indianapolis, IN @ The 1511 w/ Trash Talk 5/20 St Louis, MO @ Two Cents Plain w/ Trash Talk 5/21 Hutchinson, KS @ McGraws w/ Trash Talk 5/22 Denver, CO @ Underground w/ Trash Talk 5/23 Boise, ID @ Myrtle Morgue w/ Trash Talk 5/24 Tacoma, WA @ The Viaduct Rain Fest 5/25 Tacoma, WA @ The Viaduct Rain Fest 5/26 Portland, OR @ Backspace 5/27 Orangevale, CA @ VFW Hall 5/28 Santa Cruz, CA @ 418 Project 5/29 Newhall, CA @ American Legion Hall 5/30 Reseda, CA @ Chateau Harder 5/31 Tijuana, MX @ Kimbara Cafe 6/01 Tucson, AZ @ tba 6/02 San Antonio, TX @ The Crossing 6/03 Dallas, TX @ Red Blood Club 6/04 Oklahoma City, OK @ The Factory 6/05 Lincoln, NE @ tba 6/06 Sioux Falls, SD @ tba 6/07 Fargo, ND @ Red Raven 6/08 Minneapolis, MN @ NELC 6/09 Waterloo, IA @ Amvets Post 19 6/10 Peoria, IL @ tba 6/11 Romeo, MI @ Static Age 6/12 Toronto, ON @ Studio BLR 6/13 Erie, PA @ tba 6/14 Providence, RI @ Club Hell w/ Killing The Dream, Trap Them 6/15 Perth Amboy, NJ @ Copa De Oro w/ Killing The Dream, Trap Them 6/16 Brooklyn, NY @ Knitting Factory w/ Killing The Dream, Trap Them 6/17 Baltimore, MD @ Talking Head w/ Killing The Dream, Trap Them 6/18 Doylestown, PA @ Siren Records w/ Killing The Dream, Trap Them 6/19 Albany, NY @ Valentines w/ Killing The Dream, Trap Them 6/20 Montreal, QC @ Black Dot w/ Killing The Dream, Trap Them 6/21 Haverhill, MA @ Welfare Records w/ Killing The Dream, Trap Them
