Namesake to hit the road with Allstar Weekend for summer tour


Namesake is road ready and revitalized as they get set to embark on a summer tour with Allstar Weekend.

The tour kicks off on July 17th in Austin, TX and is in anticipation of the band's debut album, Boarders & Fences, out on August 7th on Imagen Records.

Check them out live performing their single, "Worlds Away," recently shot at a tour stop at Alrosa Villa in Columbus, OH.

With Borders & Fences, the quintet comes out swinging and they bring a flurry of pummeling rhythms, clench-fisted chords and meaty hooks that connect with each listen as they deliver fast and catchy punk power pop harmonies.

Big Smile Magazine says Namesake "redefines the punk pop genre with a modern edge", while The Examiner calls them "a band that will be heard for years to come."
