The Rhode Island native’s got his first real band We Are The Fallen, ergo, his first real debut album Tear The World Down, and above his first real consistent gig for the future.
He laughs when thinking this was all thanks to an unanswered e-mail he sent in 2002, to tryout for guitarist Ben Moody’s new band at the time, Evanescence.
“Funny story,” says O’Brien who’s been on three different Ozzfest tours as a free-lancer, and has rocked with A-list people like Tommy Lee, Disturbed, Kelly Clarkson and Celine Dion.
Get out your black nail polish, kids. H.I.M. and Papa Roach have just announced an October tour together.
Dubbed the “No Sleep Till Halloween” tour, the eleven-date trek kicks off October 18 in Lowell, MA and wraps up two weeks later at Universal City, CA’s Gibson Amphitheatres.
All shows will feature opening bands Lostprophets and Kill Hannah.
Tickets for the tour are set to go on sale next weekend.
Papa Roach will be out in support of their new album, “The Paramour Sessions.” It hits streets September 12.
