ONE OK ROCK announces final details for their North American "Ambitions" tour
ONE OK ROCK will begin their North American headline tour in support of new album "Ambitions" in just under two weeks. This marks the fourth US tour in two years but the first where they are the main draw. Previous efforts saw them play alongside bands like All Time Low, Sleeping with Sirens, and Crown the Empire for the Back to the Future Hearts tour and Monster Energy Outbreak tour respectively. Their most recent lives had the band tour as the support for 5 Seconds of Summer. This new tour will find the band show up in many major cities including New York, Los Angeles, and San Francisco, and ends in Seattle.
The San Francisco show will be at The Warfield theater on Market Street on January 22 (Sunday). The band has announced that they will be accompanied by CRUISR, OUR LAST NIGHT, and ACCEPTANCE as support bands. CRUISR will handle New York, Toronto, and Chicago with OUR LAST NIGHT covering California shows and ACCEPTANCE the Seattle show. The band will then move onward to a huge Japan tour that goes all the way to May.
ONE OK ROCK has had an ever-evolving sound in the dozen years they have been around and "Ambitions" follows this line. It's both familiar yet different from their previous efforts and shows a band that does not rest on their laurels and continues to gain traction around the world. The four-man unit led by Takahiro "Taka" Moriuchi has quickly found themself a place in America thanks to their albums "Zankyo Reference" and "Jinsei×Boku=" and work with franchises including Black Rock Shooter and Rurouni Kenshin. "Ambitions" will be officially released on January 13 by Fueled by Ramen, a sublabel of the Warner Music Group. There are both Japanese and English language versions. This marks the second album released as part of the Warner Music Group (the other being 2015's "35xxxv").
