Today, Aqueous are excited to announce their 2017 headlining fall tour, including dates in Madison, Charleston, Nashville, Cleveland and Chicago. A full list of upcoming dates can be found below and more information on specific dates is available via the band's website.
This upcoming tour will see the band play two sets on most club dates, which gives the four-piece ample time to improvise and stretch out their songs. Guitarist and vocalist Mike Gantzer enthusiastically shares, "We have really been itching to get the opportunity to have all the time we need to dive into jams as deeply as we'd like and to continue to diversify and get creative with our setlist writing too!” Additionally, Relix Magazine applauds their live show, writing, "the band concentrates on making each live performance in your face, yet light-hearted—explosive guitar pyrotechnics often find their way into surprise covers of songs from artists ranging from Will Smith to Slayer."
After several high-profile support slots—including the legendary SummerStage in NYC's Central Park and The Stone Pony Summer Stage in Asbury Park, NJ—along the Umphrey's McGee Summer Tour, Aqueous is excited to step out on their own headline tour this fall. The Buffalo-based band was formed in 2007 by members Mike Gantzer (Guitar/Vocals), David Loss (Guitar/Keys/Vocals) and Evan McPhaden (Bass), bringing the last piece of their puzzle, Rob Houk (Drums/Vocals), on during later years. The four-piece was recently joined onstage at the Highline Ballroom by Jake Cinninger and Joel Cummins of Umphrey's McGee during their own headline after-party show, and will accompany the band on a handful of upcoming dates later this summer.
Tickets for the recently announced Fall 2017 dates are on sale today, July 12th, starting at 10AM local time. Be sure to visit the band's website for more information. Their recently released their live record, Element Pt. I, which complies fan-selected cuts from their 2017 Spring tour is also available for review upon request.
