TUFF announce appearance @ ‘M3 Rock Festival’ & East Coast spring tour dates!

Posted By: Metal Sludge

Los Angeles, CA — TUFF will head East for the spring! To the East Coast that is.

The West Coast based band will make an appearance at the ‘M3 Rock Festival’ in Maryland on May 4th. It will be the groups first time at the annual event, but not their first time in the Baltimore area. TUFF singer Stevie Rachelle says, “We go way back to the heyday of ‘Hammerjacks’ during our early tour years. That club is as legendary as any on the East Coast and we cannot wait to play for our fans there again.”  

TUFF formed in early 1985 and 2013 will be the band’s 29th year in existence. “We’re honored to still have this opportunity to play our music and I truly enjoy doing it. Crazy to think this band was an idea of mine when I was just out of High School” adds Todd ‘Chase’ Chaisson band founder and bassist. Chase continues;“We’re ready to put the METAL back into HAIR METAL again!”

The set will feature the bands global mega hit and Sirius/XM ‘Hair Nation’ #1 request “American Hairband”, “I Hate Kissing You Goodbye” (#3 Dial MTV) and the pop anthem “All New Generation.” Other notable cuts sure to be heard at these shows are the up tempo ballad So Many Seasons and the heavy metal themed “
Good Guys Wear Black.”

“We’re beyond excited to play for the old skool and nu skool metal fans on the East Coast. We don’t get out that way often, and we look forward to this in a big way"adds Rachelle. "Just like the East Coast guys from Kix, Trixteror Danger Danger – they don’t get out West much, but they got fans here and we got fans there."

TUFF will enlist Billy Morris (Ex. Warrant, Ex. Quiet Riot) to play guitar during their spring run. Morris is a native of Ohio and is still active with multiple entertainment related ventures. Rounding out the bands tour line-up will be Trent Anderson (Ex. Bang Tango, D’Molls) on drums. The Chicago based drummer has chopped wood on the throne for TUFF during past tours in 2011 and 2012.
