The hardest-working, hottest young rock band in Southern California - ACIDIC - is at it again! They’ve been added to Vans Warped Tour ’14 – officially confirming 2014 as their biggest year yet!! The boys kicked it off with their first-ever headlining run, the "Electric Cool-aid ACIDIC Tour," that rocked the Rockies and Pacific Northwest in January and February with superlatives: “BEST Wednesday night in a year” – Herman’s Hideaway, Denver; and “BEST Monday night EVER” – Machinery Row, Great Falls MT. There are more tours ahead, including a return to KHTQ-FM Spokane’s “2Broke 2Rock”, and sponsored shows by KJML-FM in Joplin MO and Q106 in Great Falls MT!
ACIDIC concluded an intense 2013 with WJJO-FM’s Acoustic New Year's Eve, a third round of special events with that station this year. The boys completed their longest-ever coast-to-coast tour, with Smile Empty Soul last fall. Other 2013 highlights included three tours with Hinder, two tours with Trapt, a sold-out summer Viper Room show and a star turn at Sunset Sessions Rock 2013!, as they promoted their most successful album yet, “Copper Man”, convincing the industry crowd they were thebuzz band of the night!
“Copper Man,” produced by multi-platinum award-winner John Ryan of Chicago Kid Productions (Styx, Santana, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Allman Brothers), earned ACIDIC a distribution deal with SONY/RED via MegaForce Records. Motley Crue's Nikki Sixxnamed both the title track and "Drive Thru" “Sixx Picks of the Week” on his syndicated radio "Side Show." Meanwhile, the hilarious, jawdroppingly-insane “Copper Man” video is nearing 1,000,000 views on Youtube! ( http://www.youtube.com/theacidicband )
