Canada’s Current Swell are excited to announce U.S. headlining dates this winter. The rock band, who are already set for a spring tour with Cat Empire, will launch the solo leg on February 16th in the D.C area. The new dates will bring them to Pittsburgh, Cleveland, Minneapolis, Denver, St. Louis and numerous other midwestern cities before ending on March 4th in Nashville, TN. The North American tour with Australian band Cat Empire will begin a month later in Canada and will bring the band back to the U.S. to play several major cities on the East and West Coast in April. A full list of dates is below.
Current Swell released their latest album Ulysses, the “best record of their career” (Pittsburgh In Tune), on May 6, 2014. The album was produced by Nathan Sabatino (Dr. Dog, Neko Case, Giant Stand) at Vancouver’s iconic Greenhouse Studios. Ulysses landed at #1 on the Rock iTunes chart, #10 on the Alternative Albums Chart and a career high Top 50 debut on the Top 200 chart in Canada. The latest single “Rollin’” was recently the #1 most added track at Alternative Rock Radio and is now #11, in the competitive format’s Top 30 chart.
Current Swell’s raucous live show has earned the band scores of fans across the Americas, Australia and Europe. Whether along the festival circuit or on the road as support for such acts as Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros, Dispatch, Xavier Rudd, K’Naan, and The Tragically Hip, Current Swell never fail to get audiences on their feet.
Current Swell is Scott Stanton (vocals/guitar), David Lang (vocals/guitar), Ghosty Boy (bass) and Chris Petersen (drums).
