    Motel 6 and Primary Wave Music, one of the largest music publishing and marketing companies in the United States, announced that the second "Rock Yourself to Sleep" Tour will kick-off on January 6th 2011 with Equal Vision Records metal act We Came as Romans as the headliner. As with the inaugural tour which launched in June 2010, there is a companion contest which gives three up-and-coming bands the opportunity to open for We Came As Romans on the six-week national tour, as well as offering free rooms for the duration. Bands can enter the contest here.

    I have said this before: touring is a tough, dirty, physically uncomfortable and mentally taxing shill, so anytime you can enjoy free hotel accommodations, it is like manna from heaven. Ask any touring band if they would have done this tour for the free lodging arrangements.

    Regarding the contests, interested bands will have until December 19, 2010, to motivate fans to vote for them in head-to-head style competitions. The ten bands with the most votes will have until December 26 to have fans vote for them; three winners will be chosen from the five bands with the most votes by a panel of music industry professionals as well as We Came As Romans and will be revealed on December 29.
