Spear Guitar USA Endorses Bloodline Riot guitarist Jason Caine

Bloodline Riot guitarist, Jason Caine has officially been endorsed by Spear Guitars USA!

"I was in a music store looking for strings when I happened upon 1 of Spear Guitar's models, the Gladius Scratched Iron HT. It instantly grabbed my eye w/ such an amazing high gloss finish, amazingly detailed paint job and overall appearance. I pulled it off the rack, plugged in & couldn't put it down. I went home & started researching the company & their products and found that they have a vast array of guitar styles for just about anyone. I sought out to contact them ASAP!"

Jason will be playing 2 Gladius models to start off with, but sees more guitars down the road. "They have a guitar for just about any situation you could think of, and they're all incredibly beautiful, well-designed and play amazing! I'm having to pace myself, cuz I want them all! The Gladius is a great guitar for my style in Bloodline Riot though, because it's a streamlined instrument with an amazing cut-away, 24 frets and a sleek body-style that plays fast and sounds great!"

Make sure to keep an eye on Bloodline Riot's tour calender! They'll be coming to a town near you soon armed with Spear Guitar USA!

Krank Amps Endorsement

Bloodline Riot is happy to announce that the band is now officially endorsed by Krank Amps (Metallica, In This Moment, Pop Evil, Fall Out Boy, Arch Enemy & more). Says Jason Caine, " Krank Amps offer amazing sonic intensity, reliability, sound fidelity as well as the looks of a high performance Hot Rod, gleaming with chrome and ready to dominate. The guys at Krank are amazing to work with, and we couldn't be happier playing through amps that we've always highly admired."
