Official press release:
New York hardcore band Backtrack are calling it a day. After eleven years as a band, having toured most of the planet several times over with countless bands, and having released a long line of releases through a plethora of notable labels, the band members have decided to go their separate ways on good terms. However, before they shut it down for good, they’re going to hammer the planet with an incredible amount of touring this year.
Backtrack has announced most of their final tours for 2019, with several more still in the planning stages for late in the year. The countdown begins with the band’s final East Coast tour, which sees them joined by Dead Heat and Rule Them All, running the East Coast US and into Canada one more time, the tour booked from June 14th through June 28th.
In August, Backtrack will embark on their final West Coast tour with King Nine, Minus, and Somerset Thrower from August 9th through the 12th. September will see the band hitting the South Pacific region on their final run through Southeast Asia from September 14th through the 21st, and Australia from September 25th through October 2nd.
Following those runs, Backtrack is also booking their final European tour for November.
The members of Backtrack collectively offer:
“We appreciate everyone who has shown this band love over the past eleven years. Thanks to anyone who has supported us along the way, and we look forward to seeing you one last time.”
See the current tour dates below and watch for updates to be announced shortly and throughout the rest of 2019.
