Former Champions Announce Southeast Journey Tour

Touring behind their second studio album, Special FX Machine (April 2013), Former Champions are hitting the Southeast this summer for the Journey Tour. The four-piece from Richmond, VA will showcase their vocal-led compositions intermixed with an array of instrumentally driven electronic pieces. A sonic blend of synthesized keys mixed with sub-bass, distorted guitar, harmonized vocals, samples, and a multitude of drums, cymbals and percussion combine to create what the band describes as “street music.”

For three of the July dates, the band will be joined by vocalist JeRel Crockett for “Former Champions presents, Startin' Somethin' - A Tribute to Michael Jackson.”

Listen to Special FX Machine in its entirety including the first single “Journey”: www.formerchampionsstudio.bandcamp.com
