Quactus To Help Particle Kick Off 10 Year Anniversary Tour in San Diego October 6th
LA progressive rock band, Quactus, will open up the first show of Particle's 10 Year Anniversary Tour in Ocean Beach on October 6th.
“We are thrilled to help Particle kick off their tour at one of our favorite venues in Southern California,”
Quactus has been touring in support of their recently released album, A Sense of We, including a September 2nd performance at Winston’s with Steve Molitz of Particle. For the album A Sense of We, Quactus called upon Mike Mangan of Big Organ Trio and Particle’s master of the keys, Steve Molitz to add Hammond B3 and keyboard accents to two of the albums tracks. Shortly before the release, Relix Magazine named the first track off the album, “At Ease,” as “Editors Pick of the Month” in their April-May 2010 issue.
Particle will reunite with original guitarist Charlie Hitchcock for a select number of shows to celebrate the band's 10-year anniversary. This is the first time in five years that Hitchcock has joined the band on tour, and fans can expect to hear all the Particle classics, as well as new material.
Since creating their signature high-energy Funktronic Rock sound in Los Angeles in October of 2000, Particle has played thousands of concerts in eight different countries, and has collaborated with other musicians ranging from Robby Krieger (The Doors) to Groove Armada. Their 2004 debut album Launchpad (featuring Hitchcock) was produced by Tom Rothrock (Beck, Moby), and was voted one of the top 10 albums that year by the Associated Press.
