Cleveland-based youth-culture magazine ALTERNATIVE PRESS will kick off its second annual fall tour THE AP TOUR FALL 2010, presented by AIRWALK. The tour, featuring a lineup handpicked by AP staff, will kick off Oct. 13 at the Crofoot Ballroom in Detroit, Michigan, and will run through Nov. 28 closing out at the House of Blues in AP’s hometown of Cleveland. Due to an overwhelming positive fan response this edition has been booked in larger venues and stands to break all previous attendance records.

U.K. metal sensations BRING ME THE HORIZON and Lancaster, Pennsylvania’s heavy hitters AUGUST BURNS RED will share the spotlight, rotating headlining positions. Soulful prog-emo act EMAROSA, post-hardcore up-and-comers POLAR BEAR CLUB and Long Island hardcore quartet THIS IS HELL will round out the lineup.

“We’re excited to present an entirely new side of the AP Tour,” says AP marketing director Dawn Marshman. “It’s great that we’ve found a platform to showcase heavier genres we cover consistently in the magazine that might get overlooked otherwise. This tour is going to be amazing!”

Once again, the AP Tour includes built-in incentives for both the fans and the bands. First, each ticket purchased includes a one-year subscription to AP for the purchaser or friend. AP has teamed up with Indie Merch to provide exclusive AP Tour merch. Each band will design their own T-shirt through Indie Merch to be sold throughout the tour. FREE posters of all five bands will be available in limited quantities at each stop as well, and attendees can have them signed at AP’s nightly, free meet-and-greets. Lastly, there will be an exclusive offer for pre-sale purchasers only: For an additional $9.99 along with the purchase of a pre-sale ticket, fans will receive both newsstand covers of the AP Tour Fall issue along with the subscriber-only version.
