MODERN DAY ESCAPE and PICTURE ME BROKEN Join Forces for North American Tour

Standby Records artists MODERN DAY ESCAPE and PICTURE ME BROKEN are teaming up for a North American tour.  The first leg of the jaunt kicks off September 30th in Fullerton, CA and runs through October 20th in Pittsburgh PA.  Affiance, and Deception of a Ghost will be on the bill as well.  A second leg is expected to be announced shortly.  A complete list of confirmed dates can be found below.

MODERN DAY ESCAPE is touring in support of their latest release Under the Gun which came out earlier this year on Standby Records.  MODERN DAY ESCAPE formed in Orlando, Florida in 2006.  After going through various incarnations and lineup changes, MDE solidified their lineup in 2011 with the addition of drummer Sandra Alva (Ex-Black Veil Brides) and guitarist Mark Burn.  The lineup set out to record the album Under the Gun and now they intend to bring it to the masses.

PICTURE ME BROKEN emerged in 2005 under the name "Lane Four" playing classic rock covers as 12 year olds. PICTURE ME BROKEN, however, was truly born when the band landed a spot on a date of Linkin Park's Projekt Revolution Tour with their songs "Blind and "Live Forever." PMB defines their sound as melodic hard rock with elements of screamo and post-hardcore. PICTURE ME BROKEN is all about live energy, catchy choruses, and intense breakdowns; ready to take over the music scene with their all energy, genre crossing approach to modern music.  PICTURE ME BROKEN will be releasing a new EP this winter on Standby Records.
