The Contortionist are well aware of the fact that to promote your music effectively when you are an up and coming band, living on the road is the only way to turn heads on the grassroots level.

One look at the band's forthcoming tour itinerary will make you want a nap, stat. The band's Good Fight debut, 'Exoplanet,' is in stores now – Noisecreep premiered three songs last week -- and they will be on the road for much of the fall supporting it.
