ROC'ing ON THE BUSH & GORE 2000 TOUR
August 4, 2000 -- Rock Out Censorship (ROC) is proud to announce our participation on the Bush & Gore 2000 Tour featuring Rorschach Test, Bile, N17, Snake River Conspiracy, Videodrone, and Earth Crisis. Thanks to the offer from Rorschach Test's James Baker to assist ROC through the Bush & Gore 2000 tour by taking our materials on the road, at each show, fans will have the opportunity to sign ROC's petitions, join our internet mailing list, take informational flyers and materials to become better educated on current issues of censorship, and to make financial contributions to help fund our efforts. ROC staff members plan to be present at the Atlanta, Pittsburgh, Cleveland and Columbus shows (and possibly others) to run our booths and to answer any questions the fans may have on the issue of censorship.
"We are very pleased to have such strong support from all the acts on the Bush & Gore 2000 tour," said ROC co-founder & President John Woods, "and are excited about the boost this will give to our efforts in all areas. It is our hope that more acts would follow this lead in providing such direct assistance to the causes they believe in strongly."
ROC Webmaster & Florida Representative Kenny Moore added, "We are thrilled with the entire concept behind the Bush & Gore tour in that it exposes the frightening lack of choice Americans face when forced to choose between the lesser of these two political evils. We sincerely hope that more events like this will help awaken the public to the urgent need for a third party movement that genuinely respects the Constitutional and First Amendment rights of all Americans."
Further details regarding the tour can be found within the following press release from Rorschach Test:

BUSH AND GORE 2000!!!!
"Sex and violence have never been better together!!"
After bursting onto the scene with their rendition of Berlin's "Sex," Rorschach Test became one of the most sought after industrial rock bands to emerge in years. The Seattle-based rivetheads have returned with the new release 'PEACE MINUS ONE', which debuted as the #1 most added album to metal radio and has continued to furiously top the charts since its May 12th release. Brilliantly produced by Neil Kernon (Judas Priest, Queensryche, Bowie, etc.), 'PEACE MINUS ONE' is already receiving rave reviews as one of the best hard rock records to hit the streets in years. Go to http://www.emaginemusic.com or http://www.rorschachtest.com to get all the dope on the Northwest's hottest industrial rock export in history.
Snake River Conspiracy
San Francisco's SRC burst onto the scene with their hit single and MTV video "Vulcan." They continue to pound the charts with their cover of The Smith's "How Soon Is Now." Rumor has that a video for the single will soon follow. Check out SRC at http://www.snakeriverconspiracy.com
After their cameo appearance in Dee Snider's "Strangeland", the Hardcore Industrial Terrorists known as Bile continue to delight cold wave fans with an amazing subversive, perversive stage show and the release of their new record 'Sex Reflex' (available now on their own BileStyle Records). Be sure to also check out their cover of "Tourniquet" on the Marilyn Manson tribute album 'Anthems of Rust and Decay', available on Dwell Records. Bile's music can also be heard on the new shock video 'Traces of Death 5'. The official site of Bile can be found at http://www.bilestyle.com
Fans of N17 will tell you that to witness this band live is an unforgettable experience. "Trust No One", the bands initial release, has reached a legendary place on the mantle of industrial metal. Now, N17 is ready to hit the road to promote their sophomore release, "Defy Everything." Go to http://www.N17.org to see what all the hype on this amazing Phoenix band is.
After being signed by Jonathan from Korn to Elementree Records, Videodrone has enjoyed the continued success of their hit "Ty Jonathan Down", featured on MTV's Return of the Rock. Bush and Gore 2000 is excited about this recent addition to the tour and looks forward to them joining the ranks in September. http://www.videodrone.com
In addition to the amazing live lineup, Bush and Gore 2000 is your opportunity to be seen and heard with its Pageant of the Perverse and Bizarre. If you are a walking freak show or can do something visually stunning, this is your big chance to get on stage and show your stuff. Acts ranging from the exotic to the stupid will compete in front of an international audience for the grand prize of a trip for two to Las Vegas to see the final concert of the show.
