SET TO PERFORM AT THE CMJ COLLEGE BUYER’S LOUNGE ON OCTOBER 22ND
(New York – NY) – 2AM Club announce their first headlining tour in support of their debut album What Did You Think Was Going To Happen? (RCA Records) which came out on September 14th and debuted at #4 on Billboard’s Heatseekers chart. The band will kick off the tour on October 19th in Boston followed by a performance on October 22nd at the CMJ College Buyer’s Lounge and continue through November 12th with special guest Runner Runner.
Currently touring on Mike Posner’s Up In The Air Tour and fresh off their tour with Chiddy Bang as well as the MTV VMA tour with Never Shout Never and The Ready Set, the video from 2AM Club’s first single “Worry About You” made a big impact at MTV and MTVU. Billboard called the song an “undeniably catchy tune" while the Los Angeles Times says 2AM Club has a “soulful sound with sharp pop hooks.”
This summer 2AM Club was named MTV’s PUSH (Play Until Someone Hears) Artist of the Week in early August and were the featured performers on the July 13th episode of ABC Family’s hit summer show Pretty Little Liars.
The 6 members of 2AM Club —vocalists Marc Griffin and Tyler Cordy, guitarist Matt Reagan, keyboard player Dave Dalton, drummer Ian O’Neill and bassist Matt Warshauer, AKA “Sauce”—bring a diverse array of influences to the table (Jay Z to the Beatles, Duran Duran to the Beastie Boys, Stevie Wonder to The Strokes), effortlessly synthesizing the very best of all that has come before them to create music that is resoundingly modern.
One part Seattle, one part Bay Area and one part Northeast, the group came together in Los Angeles in 2007 and honed their skills playing the local college scene before heading up and down the West Coast, booking, producing, and headlining their own gigs. After recording some demos with Jerry Harrison—a former member of the Talking Heads and Modern Lovers—2AM Club played a now-legendary four-month residency they called “Tiny Porno” at the Derby in L.A., and word quickly spread that it was the place to be. They then picked up and transplanted to NYC to record What Did You Think Was Going To Happen? With producers Sam Hollander and Dave Katz (Boys Like Girls, Katy Perry, Gym Class Heroes).
