You may know the hardcore band, Cipher, from the Afro-punk documentary. Or maybe you saw them at this year's Afro-punk fest in Brooklyn. Or possibly at one of their many shows throughout the hardcore scene. Needless to say, these guys are on the move- they just finished with the 2010 AP festival and are now kicking off their 45 date, 40 state, US tour in support of their upcoming record, "The Joyous Collapse." The record will be released for download and other sales tuesday July 13th. Moe, lead singer of Cipher, said, "Our band is looking forward to meeting up with AP community members as we hit the stage throughout the country."
And in a rather interesting, back doorsy, kind of way, Moe from Cipher invites you out to see his band while they tour around the country. Tour dates, video, music and photos below!
