“OC is stoked to tear up the stage with friends and fans on our 2010 Summer Shred Canadian Tour! We’ll be debuting some searing new material as well as scorching tracks from our current album Blood, Steel and Fire. So come down, grab a beer and let’s rip it up!” commented vocalist / guitarist Johnny Ketlo.
