"Thicker Than Blood Tour" Dates Announced

Multi-platinum hard rock icons EXTREME’s latest single “Rise” has seen unprecedented success following its debut on March 1 alongside a fiery music video which has received over 2 million views to date. The song, from their new album SIX out June 9 via earMUSIC, has earned praise from international top tier media outlets including Consequence, Classic Rock, Music Radar and Guitar World in addition to accolades from such fellow musical peers as Brian May and radio personality Howard Stern while peaking at #3 on the Classic Rock charts.

The band—Gary Cherone (vocals), Nuno Bettencourt, Pat Badger (bass), and Kevin Figueiredo (drums)—have shared two new singles along with dazzling videos to accompany each: “Banshee” and “#Rebel”. Watch both on KNAC.COM HERE for “Banshee” and HERE for “#Rebel”.

“Banshee” is a seductive classic hard rock tune with a chugging rhythm section, playful guitar wizardry and electrifying vocals that testify to the power and inspiration of the female form and spirit.” “#Rebel” takes on scathing so-called keyboard warriors with its head-nodding beat and searing dive bomb lead guitar runs catering to the harder edges of EXTREME’s sound. “We’re calling out those trolls who can’t back up their words,” explains Cherone.

EXTREME are also excited to announce they will bring SIX’s music to audiences across the globe on the “Thicker Than Blood Tour”. The tour will see the band visit North America from August 2-29 and Australia from September 6-13 where they will be joined by special guests LIVING COLOUR. EXTREME will also continue to bring the “Thicker Than Blood Tour” to audiences in Japan from September 17-26. Tickets for Japan will go on sale April 22. GA tickets and VIP upgrades--which include access to the band’s soundcheck--for the North American dates will go on sale Friday, April 21 at 10:00 A.M. local time as well as tickets for Australia.

On SIX, EXTREME swing between unapologetic fits of fret-burning hard rock and intimately introspective balladry. For the recording of the Bettencourt-produced 12-track album, the members buckled down at his home studio in Los Angeles to channel the electrifying eclecticism that defined their seminal output with a 21st century twist.

This dynamic affirms the iconic Boston quartet as one of rock’s most unpredictable, undeniable, and unbreakable groups whose songs course through the very fabric of popular culture. They’re the rare band whose music has appeared in an actual cult series a la Bill & Ted as well as the Netflix juggernaut Stranger Things. They’ve sold 10 million records, topped the Billboard Hot 100 at #1, packed major venues on multiple continents, memorably performed at the Freddie Mercury Tribute Concert in London, and regularly average over 5 million monthly listeners on Spotify. However, their dynamic approach hits harder than ever on their 2023 full-length offering, SIX.

The track listing for SIX is:

  • "Rise"
  • "#Rebel"
  • "Banshee"
  • "Other Side of the Rainbow"
  • "Small Town Beautiful"
  • "The Mask"
  • "Thicker Than Blood"
  • "Save Me"
  • "Hurricane"
  • "X Out"
  • "Beautiful Girls"
  • "Here's to the Losers"
