SCALE THE SUMMIT Announce First Headline Tour

   Progressive instrumental act, SCALE THE SUMMIT, have announced their first ever headline tour, entitled, “Their Strings Are Voices.” The band will hit the road in January and February. Support will come from Elitist. The band is also running a poll for fans to pick songs for the set lists on the tour;  go here to vote now.   SCALE THE SUMMIT are currently on the road with Protest the Hero and label mates, Last Chance to Reason, and are supporting their most recent release, “The Collective.”

Guitarist Chris Letchford commented on “Their Strings Are Voices:”  “I am very excited to announce our first ever headlining tour! We decided to go with only one support band for this tour so that we are able to ensure our fans  that they’ll be getting a full set from us each night. Since it’s our first headliner, we’ll be playing tracks from all three full lengths: “Monument”,  “Carving Desert Canyons” and our most recent release, “The Collective”. Support for this tour is Elitist, a young band from California; all very talented and  proficient players and a great addition to the bill. We will also be having a few locals open the show each night. Make sure to not miss this tour and come  out early to support your local music scene! See you guys on the road!  If you guys are interested in choosing the songs that we play, please go and check out the poll, now!”

SCALE THE SUMMIT formed in 2005 while attending the Musicians’ Institute in Los Angeles. The band relocated to Texas in 2006, where they recorded their first, self-released album. After signing with Prosthetic, they released “Carving Desert Canyons”, which Revolver called,  “a cinematic blast of intricately melodic fretwork and pummeling percussion,” in 2009.


The band,  who received praise from Guitar World for their “tightly-woven guitar interplay, irregular time signatures and tasteful licks,”  has toured with the likes of PROTEST THE HERO, BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME, FAIR TO MIDLAND, CYNIC, THE DEVIN TOWNSEND PROJECT and were handpicked by DREAM THEATER to participate in the 2009 installment of their famed “Progressive Nation” festival tour. SCALE THE SUMMIT has also been featured prominently in Guitar Player magazine, and has tracks available for the Rock Band video game through the Rock Band Network. Chris Letchford was featured in Metal Sucks’ “Top 25 Modern Guitarists” list.
