They went on 2 months later to showcase at SXSW ' 09 Austin Texas and put themselves on the map. They also supported Bret Micheals and Godsmack in Rhode Island at the Dunkin Donuts Arena.
Relief then went on to play CMJ '09 selected by Universal and Platform One and this caught the attention of Gavin Rossdale (BUSH). They supported Gavin Rossdale at The House of Blues in Chicago and fascinated crowds, which broke them into the US music scene.
