Kerrang announce the Kerrang! Relentless Energy Tour 2011

Kerrang have announced the “Kerrang! Relentless Energy Tour 2011” which will kick off in February with headliners Good Charlotte being supported by Four Year Strong, Framing Hanley and a yet to be announced fourth band.

“This is really exciting for us,” says Good Charlotte guitarist Benji Madden. “Kerrang! have always been a big supporter of our band and it’s something we don’t take for granted. This is the first time we’ve done anything like this, especially in the UK, and I think it’s long overdue. It’s going to be like one long party!

“We can’t wait to hang out with Four Year Strong and Framing Hanley, too,” he adds. “The bill is so strong – people are going to get their money’s worth!”

“We’re really excited to do this,” adds Four Year Strong guitarist/vocalist Alan Day. “We love coming over to the UK because the shows are always amazing.

“We’re really looking forward to starting the tour in Ireland, too,” he adds. “We’ve never been to Dublin, so I’m going to be the biggest tourist ever and do all the sightseeing I can. This tour is going to be unbelievable!”

Framing Hanley frontman Kenneth Nixon says that he finds it “surreal” to be touring with Good Charlotte.

“I think that’s the best way of explaining it!” he laughs. “In 2002, I remember playing [Good Charlotte’s 2000 debut single] Little Things at a party! Eight years on, it’s crazy to think we’ll be hitting the road with these guys. It’s going to be awesome.

“We feel that this is a big opportunity for our band and it’s really flattering to be part of this tour,” he adds. “It’s a diverse bill and I think that’s one of the coolest things about this tour. This is a huge step for us and it’s exciting to be on a bill with such great bands. Being in the support slot, you’re pushed to put on a better show and prove yourself night after night. We always thrive in that situation. We really can’t wait.”
