NEW ORLEANS, LA - Louisiana's hard rock quartet, 12 Stones, will kick off the first leg of its headlining "Beneath The Scars" summer 2012 tour tonight in Merriam, Kan., with Blameshift, Digital Summer and Throwing Gravity in support. The acclaimed group's initial month-long summer trek will wrap up in Marietta, Ga. on August 7th, with a second round of dates to commence on August 9th. A full list of confirmed dates can be seen below.

VIP meet-and-greet packages are available now through Soundrink at: Each package includes a sound check meet-and-greet with the band, signed poster and exclusive tour laminate.

A group that has sold more than 2 million total records to date, this current run is just the tip of the touring iceberg for 12 Stones in support of Beneath The Scars - the band's fourth studio album, and first on the independent record label, Executive Music Group. The band plans to continue to tour for the remainder of 2012, and into 2013, behind the release that debuted on the Billboard 200, and was the #1 Billboard Christian Rock album while also scoring the #1 Christian Rock single with "Worlds Collide." The album has also spawned two charting Active Rock hits with "Bulletproof" and "Infected."

A new single, "The One Thing," will be released later this summer as the band continues its Beneath The Scars touring onslaught.
