The band released Heart of Stone in mid 2016 while touring with New Years Day, Sylar and My Enemies and I. Before that Blameshift had been touring straight for nearly 8 years, logging over 1 million miles on the road, playing everything from the Vans Warped Tour to American Airlines Arena.

They have landed endorsements with the biggest music companies in the world like PRS Guitars, Sennheiser, GHS Strings & Bogner Amps as well as COLDCOCK Whiskey, Venue Magic and Sullen Clothing. They have toured alongside and shared the stage with bands like Pop Evil, Adelita’s Way, Sick Puppies, Straight Line Stitch, 12 Stones and Black Stone Cherry to name just a few.
