Irish rock band Kodaline announces a North American headlining tour set for this fall.

Additionally the band is confirmed to play Firefly, Lollapalloza and Osheaga Festivals this summer and both weekends of Austin City Limits.
Fresh off their sold out US tour, the band is currently touring Europe where they played their biggest headline show to date in front of a passionate crowd of 14,000 hometown fans at the O2 Arena in Dublin. The band teamed up with FanFootage to create a special video memory of the night to their hit single “All I Want” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gBQTdZWlDm8. Their debut album In A Perfect World has spent a total of 9 weeks at #1 and is double platinum in Ireland. The last artist to achieve 9 weeks at #1 was Adele in 2011 with her album 21. The band is set to open for Kings of Leon this summer at Marlay Park in Ireland on July 4th. In April, Ellie Goulding released a cover of the bands single, “All I Want” which can be heard here.
The band released In A Perfect World in the US last October. The album jumped into the Top 15 on iTunes after their stunning performance of their current single “All I Want” on FOX’s American Idol this past March. “All I Want” has already been played a combined total of over 2500x between three formats/ stations at SIRIUS-XM, including ALT NATION, SPECTRUM and THE PULSE. Additionally the single has received early support from over 40 HOT AC and AAA stations around the country, including marquee call letters and markets like WWFS/ NYC, KLLC/ SF, WTMX/ CHICAGO, KHMX/ HOUSTON, WBMX/ BOSTON, WVMX/ COLUMBUS, KINK/ PORTLAND, WRLT/ NASHVILLE and many more.
“All I Want” will be featured in the upcoming film The Fault In Our Stars and can also be found on the film’s official soundtrack, which is set for release May 19th. The single as well as several additional tracks off the record have received television and ad placements for Google, ESPN, the promo bed for NBC’s hit new series Chicago PD and ABC’s series Resurrection, ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy, ABC’s Modern Family, VH1’s Couple’s Therapy, VH1’s Mob Wives, FOX’s So You Think You Can Dance, FOX’s American Idol and many more.

Hailing from Dublin, Ireland Kodaline are childhood friends Steve Garrigan (lead vocals) Mark Prendergast (guitarist), Jason Boland (bassist) and Vinny May (drummer). Steve and Mark met at the age of 7 in the school choir and forged a close musical bond learning to play guitar together, growing up just minutes apart. They encountered Vinny playing with another band in their early teens and quickly recognized his talents. Jason completed the line-up in 2011, and Kodaline was born.
