AB Negative are one of ten bands selected to go on the R.I.P tour in November, chosen from the 500+ bands from all over the UK and Ireland that had auditioned for a place. The R.I.P tour is being organised by Gold Music Ltd and Eclipse Promotions and the purpose of the tour is to showcase what in their opinion are the best unsigned bands in the country.

The tour hits Leeds' Bassment venue on November 11th, with AB Negative organising a full UK tour for early next year.
