    Sacramento-based rock duo, Middle Class Rut, are kicking off a run of dates supporting AWOLNATION. Beginning Nov. 2, Middle Class Rut will make their way across the country, from coast to coast and through the Midwest!

    Middle Class Rut are touring in support of their debut album, No Name No Color, which spawned the smash radio hit "New Low," which ended up reaching No. 5 at Alternative Radio. Their current single, "Busy Bein' Born" has been climbing the charts and is now officially in the Top 25 at radio.

    In other news, beginning Nov. 8, you can purchase Middle Class Rut's "Hurricane" via all digital service providers. It features MC Rut's resplendent cover of the Bob Dylan classic "Hurricane," as well as an exclusive live version of "New Low" (from No Name No Color) and "Dead Set" (from 25 Years EP), recorded live in the UK at Zane Lowe's Maida Vale session and at XFM Studios, respectively. A 10" vinyl edition will be available at gigs.

    "Hurricane" Track listing:
    Side A:
    Hurricane

    Side B:
    New Low (live at Maida Vale studios, 2010)
    Dead Set (live at XFM Studios, 2009)

    MC Rut has been eagerly embraced by rock fans and the press for their stunning debut, which artfully blurs the line between heavy and melodic with raw, energized rock and roll. This band is no overnight sensation. The duo, Zack Lopez (vocals, guitar) and Sean Stockham (drums), have been playing together since they were teenagers. The pair records every song they write together almost immediately upon coming up with the idea in their rehearsal space, capturing the instantaneous spirit of a track while still in the moment.
