Los Angeles, CA, April 13, 2011 - After continuous requests from fans, Bremerton, WA musician MIKE HERRERA will finally be making his way across the U.S. to the East Coast for a month-long acoustic tour with Gasoline Heart's Louis DeFabrizio. Well know as the frontman of punk-pop trio MXPX, Herrera has broadened his fanbase with the debut of his alt-country band, TUMBLEDOWN, and tapped into his 50's/60's melodic rock side project ARTHUR late last year.Herrera has written his way into his fan's hearts over the course of his 17-year long career, selling more than 1.5 million records and touring the world. With an endless archive of tracks to choose from, Herrera will be performing a highly anticipated set list full of MXPX, ARTHUR and TUMBLEDOWN hits. With the set lists varying from city to city, fans are encouraged to shout out their favorite tracks for a possible impromptu addition.

"I'm excited to finally be able to reach our East Coast fans who have been waiting too long for one of my bands to come through town," said Herrera. "This tour will allow me to truly connect with MxPx, Arthur and Tumbledown fans in an intimate setting, which will hopefully suffice the long wait!"

In addition to special tour merch packages, the tour will be the first chance for fans to purchase Mike Herrera: Live From The Basement, a release that truly captures the essence of the tour. "I don't want fans to think this is a solo album," said Herrera. "It's just a live recording of me, performing my songs in my basement. I want fans to be able to take a similar version of what they heard on this tour home with them." The album will be available online starting the first day of the tour, Thursday, April 21 through and only.

MXPX formed in Bremerton, WA in 1993. Since then, they have released numerous albums, singles, EP's, and DVD's. Their most recent release, Left Coast Punk EP (2009) was recorded in Herrera's studio, Monkey Trench, and released on their own record label, Rock City Recording Company. MXPX are currently in the studio working on a new album. TUMBLEDOWN release their sophomore album, Empty Bottle (2010) via End Sounds to great critical acclaim and will be releasing a new single this summer. ARTHUR released their long awaited full-length album, Watch The Years Crawl By (2010), through Rock City Recording Company, a follow-up to their 1999 EP, Loneliness Is Bliss.
