SET TO PLAY LOLLAPALOOZA 2012 IN AUGUST
(New York, New York) – UK band, Dry the River, announce their first US headlining tour set for this May. The tour dates begin on May 19th in Arlington, VA and continue through May 30th in Los Angeles, CA. The band will also stop by Chicago to play Lollapalooza 2012 this August.
The band will be touring in support of their debut album, Shallow Bed, due out on RCA Records April 17th. The album is produced by Peter Katis who has worked with Interpol and The National and was recorded in Connecticut.
The band is currently finishing up their North American tour dates with Bowerbirds and has been receiving rave reviews. Billboard.Biz claimed, “Eyes were glued to the band during their doo-wop moments when Liddle, Taylor and Harvey sang harmonies,” while The Village Voice stated, “openers Dry The River brought their more-rock-than-folk to the table and almost upstaged the headliners.” They were recently featured on NPR's nationally-syndicated All Things Considered.
Dry the River has been enjoying an incredible run of critical success in their native UK by landing on the super exclusive BBC Sound of 2012 list, hitting #1 on the NME Chart and being named one of British GQ’s “100 Best Things in the World Right Now” and Q Magazine’s “Faces of 2012.”
