Drive Thru to host Euro tour!

Everyone’s favourite pop-punk label Drive Thru Records are to bring their very own tour to Europe in early June.

So far the news has been kept very much under wraps, but pop-punksters Allister seem to have let the cat out of the bag following a posting on their website

It reads: “What’s up everybody? Here’s the latest news. Recording is going great. We’ve been out in California for the past month and the new CD is almost finished.

“We’ve also been added onto a Drive Thru European tour for the first two weeks of June and then we’ll be on the Drive Thru Records stage all summer on the Warped Tour. So please come out these next few months if you get the chance and help support all the bands.”

At the moment there is no more information available on dates or other bands playing, although both Midtown and The Movielife are confirmed to play the Deconstruction Festival.

This could mean that Allister are set to join the two on the Decon tour, or that both bands will simply play a few extra dates.

More information on the tour will be posted as soon as we have it.

Paul, otherwise known as Sav, is quite possibly the only member of the Punktastic team to actually have a proper job. But don't hold that against him. He's actually a proper journalist, (a reporter for a daily northern paper) and so adds a bit of credence to the team. Except you wouldn't think that by reading his reviews. Maybe somebody should tell him that it is quality and not quantity that counts! Sav actually ended up working for Punktastic after meeting Nick at university, and the pair bonded over all things punk rock. Another guitarist, he also "writes a lot of songs about relationships, and how mine went wrong." Oh, and he loves the Ataris, if you hadn't already noticed. In his spare time he worships at the church of Kris Roe... Other fave bands include: MxPx, New Found Glory, Blink 182, Weezer, Midtown, Reel Big Fish, The Get Up Kids, Alkaline Trio, NOFX, Green Day, Deftones, Lit and Silverchair to name but a few. Hobbies include, sleeping, drinking, eating fish and supporting Grimsby Town FC. But hey, somebody has to.
