IWRESTLEDABEARONCE — the Shreveport, Louisiana quintet now transplanted to Los Angeles, California — played its first show with singer Courtney LaPlante (UNICRON) on July 5 at the St. Louis, Missouri stop of the Vans Warped Tour. Fan-filmed video footage of the performance can be seen below.
Vocalist Krysta Cameron left IWRESTLEDABEARONCE‘s current tour after she discovered that she and her fiancé are expecting a child.
IWRESTLEDABEARONCE guitarist Steven Bradley previously stated about LaPlante, “Courtney is a beast in both the singing and screaming departments and is also an incredibly awesome person. We wouldn’t tarnish the years of work that we’ve put into this band by having somebody half-ass it on stage with us, so please come to a show and give her a high-five and make her feel welcome for doing us this huge favor. It makes it feel even better and more natural since she has been a long-term fan of our band and already knows the material.”
IWRESTLEDABEARONCE‘s latest album, “Ruining It For Everybody”, sold around 5,300 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 80 on The Billboard 200 chart.
IWRESTLEDABEARONCE‘s “I’m Gonna Shoot” video can be seen below. The clip features footage from the band’s first-ever shows in Mexico, which took place on May 26 in Guadalajara and May 27 in Mexico City.
