It's hard to top the last two incarnations of the Shred Yr Face tour. Featuring the likes of Los Campesinos, No Age, The Bronx and Fucked Up, Shred Yr Face has become the tour to show off yr energy, yr spirit and yr ability to blow the in-house speakers with just one rasping vocal.
This year though is markedly different. Shred Yr Face 3 has gone all lo-fi, with The Cave Singers and Woods joining up with headliners Espers. And though this tour will not be run on pure adrenaline, it's sure to be one of the most exciting experiences since last time around.
For the rest of the week we'll be giving away tickets and MP3s, whilst also sitting down with the bands involved to give you just a few more reasons why Shred Yr Face 3 deserves your attention.
The whole thing kicks off next Monday in Canterbury and you could very well be there too with our recession-busting competition.
Head on over here, where we're giving away a pair of tickets to all twelve shows or alternatively click here if you don't want to leave it to chance and risk missing quite possibly 2009's best U.K tour.
