Swirl to support RATT and Extreme on summer tour.

Los Angeles, CA, – As their explosive singles "Adrenaline", "Controlled Emotions" and "Sleepwalker " are already on over 80 Rock and Metal Internet stations, Swirl is hitting the road supporting RATT and Extreme on the East Meets West Tour 09.

"We are honored to be included on the East Meets West Tour 2009. It is no surprise to our existing fan base how much respect and admiration we have for both RATT and Extreme. In RATT we have true friends in the industry. Carlos Cavazo produced the first Swirl release; Bobby Blotzer and Stephen Pearcy have been particularly supportive throughout the years.

The incredible harmonies and lead vocals in Extreme’s music have always been an influence on the Swirl writing process and something we strive to emulate whether it be on stage or in the studio. To be included on this tour as direct support for Extreme is both humbling and very exciting!".

The "Timeline" Cd will be available during the tour prior to the records fall release. Singles "Andrenaline" and "Sleepwalker" are curently on iTunes. Fred Coury (Cinderella), Matt Thorr (Rough Cutt) and Carlos Cavazo (RATT) have producer credits on the album.
