Slospeak Records just announced that pop/rock act Pioneer will support the No Direction Tour this spring, featuring The Wedding, Wavorly and Satellites & Sirens. The tour runs from April 19 to May 14 and spans the the MidWest to SouthEast regions of the country.
To date, this is Pioneer’s most notable touring venture. “We’re really pumped to hit the road with The Wedding,” says drummer Dan Voris. “It’s an honor that they asked us. We’re ready to see the fans again and play the new set.”
The Wedding is equally prepared. “I’m so excited about the No Direction Tour,” vocalist Matt Shelton shares. “It’s our first tour of 2012, and the first time we will get to try out some of the jams from our upcoming record. We’ve put together a really fun package for the tour, so every night should be something to look forward to.”

Anything worth doing usually comes with it’s fair share of trials and hard work. Being in a band or starting a record label is no exception. (especially these days.) The woes of the music industry are well documented, and we don’t really need to go into that. What I do want to go into is that in the midst of all those trials and hard work, every once in a while, we get a victory. A moment that helps affirm what we are doing. A moment that lets us know that we are making an impact. A moment that encourages us to press on! Pioneer going #1 with their single Treason was one of those moments.
This is a big step for our young label and for the band! In a little over a month Pioneer has given themselves, and Slospeak our first #1 single. Although our idea of success as a label is not based around how many #1′s we can get, this is proof that we are having an impact on people, and that is exciting! I am super stoked to see what God has in store for Slospeak and our artist! This is just the beginning!
