Taproot Tickets for Sale

Four-piece nu metal group Taproot formed in 1997 in Ann Arbor, Michigan and quickly gained some fanfare and some fans embedded in the music industry. The group – made up of lead singer and guitarist Stephen Richards, lead guitarist Mike DeWolf, bassist Phil Liscomb, and drummer Jarrod Montague – sent a demo to Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst. Durst offered to sign the band, but the group ended up signing with Atlantic Records, ending any possibility of ever selling tickets with the vexed Durst and Interscope Records.

During the musical spat that included Durst, System of a Down, and Taproot, the band released three independent albums (More Than Nothing in 1998, Mentobe in 1998, and Upon Us in 1999). Finally in 2000 Taproot made their label debut with Gift. As their single Again and Again gained airtime on MTV2, their following began to increase. They even found a fan in Jack Osbourne, Ozzy's son, and played on the second stage of the Ozzfest Tour in 2000 and 2001. With decent album sales and a fair number of Taproot tickets sold the group returned to the studio.

By 2002, Taproot released Welcome. The result of seven months of recording time in Los Angeles, the album was far more melodic than the label debut and was a hit on the charts thanks to the single Poem. The album earned gold certification and the group helped sell tickets as part of Disturbed's Music as a Weapon Tour and on their own European tour.

The band took a two year break, returning in August 2005 with their third major album, Blue Sky Research. The album was produced by Toby Wright and had some lyrical help from the pen of Billy Corgan. The headlining tour sold Taproot tickets with Evans Blue and From Satelite as supporting acts. The band also played shows with established metal/hard rock acts like Chevelle, 30 Secnods to Mars, Staind, and P.O.D.

Despite the tremendous company and song at WWE's 2005 Unforgiven pay-per-view event, the album sales were less than stellar, prompting the group to part ways with Atlantic Records.

Taproot returned in 2008 with a new album, Our Long Road Home, and a new producer, Tim Patalan. The album was an independent release. More changes came for the promotional tour, as drummer Jarrod Montague decided to take a hiatus. His friend, Nick Fredell, will replace him. The 2009 leg of the promotional tour will sell Taproot tickets in 24 cities in the United States, beginning on March 19 in Cleveland and going until May 2 in East Lansing, Michigan.
