OPPOSITION RISING is in the beginning stages of booking a UK Tour for July 2014 and will possibly be doing some mainland European gigs as well. This is a huge undertaking for an what is basically an unknown DIY band in this day and age. So any and all help, suggestions, show offers or support would be greatly appreciated.
