Rock Band to Tour East Coast By Bicycle - bicycle to lead 15 Roadies From Gig to Gig On Their Bikes
ATLANTA - May 10, 2000 - Capricorn Records recording group, bicycle, will literally hit the road on bicycles beginning on May 20, 2000, in Portland, Maine, and ending June 6, 2000, in Washington D.C. The tour, dubbed The State 68, will encompass the band and a team of roadies, riders, and various friends. The tour is the brainchild of bicycle's lead singer/guitarist Kurt Liebert.
The "roadies" are the winners of a contest on bicycle's website, www.bicycletheband.com. Entrants submitted an essay entitled, "Why I Want 2b A bicycle Roadie." Fifteen lucky winners were selected from hundreds of submissions. Each winner receives a brand new Airborne comfort bike and a BOB trailer to take along the tour and keep as a souvenir from their historic journey. For more details, go to www.bicycletheband.com/state68.asp
Since 1995, Seattle-based Liebert and various renditions of bicycle have pedaled over 8,500 miles and played hundreds of gigs. The band relies on the BOB brand of lightweight bicycle trailers to haul its gear, which is minimized and miniaturized (Steinberger guitars, Gallan Kruger Amps, a drum kit consisting of kick, snare, hi-hat and sensitized bike tires turned upside down that trigger samplers for tom-toms).
For The State 68, the touring ensemble includes: Kurt Liebert, lead vocals and guitar; Andy Massey, guitar; James Strother, bass; Kelly de Syandinos, harmonica, samples, and vocals; Poiena Suddarth, vocals; and drummer Ivo Nakov. bicycle's Capricorn Record's self-titled debut was released in July of 1999. Currently, a remixed version (by Steve Fisk) of "High Plains Drifter" is being worked to Modern Rock radio.
