Aficionado Announce US Tour w/ Electric Six

Following the release of their new self-titled full-length album out now on No Sleep Records, and their year-end shows with Thursday and Screaming Females, Albany, NY's indie-punk hybrid Aficionado have announced a string of US tour dates supporting Electric Six. Taking place this March and April, the dates will also follow the band's return from Europe where they're currently touring the continent with friends End Of A Year Self Defense Family.

With ten songs produced and recorded with AJ Mogis (Bright Eyes, M. Ward, Cursive), and on the heels of their critically acclaimed "When It Comes To Creation" EP, the songs on Aficionado's latest are sharp and more compact with less of an emphasis on wowing people with over the top antics and more of a focus on the songs themselves. The lyrical basis is centered on expositions of thinking for yourself, attaining what it takes to be a charismatic person, heeding to the realities of aging, and acceptance of change. Drawing from a range of influences such as Cursive, The Hold Steady, Sunny Day Real Estate and At the Drive In, Aficionado incorporates the sweet honey coated coo of Laura Carrozza which tinges the melodies and a harmonious male/female vocal styling alongside singer Nick Warchol.

On their new album, Aficionado have created an opus based on the basic concept of pure camaraderie and solidarity amongst good friends, with the aim of simply making good music.
