The band ripped through 51 shows in 23 countries, with almost 40 of the venues sold out! The Babylon CD was released Oct. 12, and a video was shot in LA for the track Babylon's Burning. The CD's opening track Crazy was posted free online, to a widely positive response. The group's smoothest and chaos-free tour yet, a brand new Allen& Heath I-Live 112T digital mixing board was taken on the road, simplifying(almost eliminating) sound checks. Blair's Blade LP was modified with 6 lasers running the length of the neck, creating a stunning visual effect. The band stole the show at the Hard Rock Hell festival in the UK, fully upstaging veterans Queensryche.
