This April, Aqueous will play 4 headlining tour dates throughout the Northeast with one very rare 2-night stint among them. The newly announced dates include 2 nights at Flour City in Rochester, NY on April 13th & 14th, a night at King's Rook Club in Erie, PA on April 20th and a play at The Haunt in Ithaca, NY.
"There are certain shows on any given tour that really stand out," says Mike Gantzer, vocalist and guitarist of the Buffalo-based quartet, Aqueous. He elaborates, "Maybe we were sleep-deprived, maybe it was a full moon – whatever it was, the Kalamazoo, MI show last November had that MAGIC."
For the better part of 2017, Aqueous have been touring coast-to-coast, both in support of Umphrey's McGee, and headlining their own dates. The group has even made their way around this year's festival circuit, playing to packed stages at national festivals like Peach Music Festival and Summer Camp Music Festival, with their debut performance at Suwanee Hulaween scheduled for this October.
This summer, Aqueous will join Umphrey's McGee on several high-profile shows, including a very special performance at Central Park's SummerStage on July 7th, 2017, featuring one set of Aqueous and two full sets from Umphrey’s. Today, Aqueous are pleased to announce that immediately following the SummerStage performance, they will host their very own headlining show at the Highline Ballroom in NYC.
Today, Aqueous announce the release of a new live album, Element Pt. I, out now. Featuring highlights from the band’s Spring 2017 tour, the collection is the first installment of an ongoing live series. For this release, the band went directly to their fans and cataloged personal highlights to figure out which jams and song versions were worthy of inclusion.
Twiddle’s Tumble Down festival is returning to Burlington Vermont’s Waterfront Park for its second year and has officially announced its lineup. The band’s hometown festival, promoted by Higher Ground Presents, will feature two days of music including four sets by Twiddle, and sets by Fruition, Madaila, Aqueous and Midnight North as well as day sets from Lucid, Strange Machines, Holly Bowling, Teddy Midnight, Navytrain, and The Mangroves. The two-day music festival will take place on Friday, July 28 and Saturday, July 29.
With roots at Vermont's Castleton State University, Twiddle began their extensive touring career in 2005. Over a decade later, the foursome has composed an eclectic catalogue spanning three studio albums of originals, in addition to many live releases. Currently the band is digging in at the studio composing PLUMP Chapter Two, the second half of their acclaimed third album. Having performed at a multitude of international festivals, Twiddle's trajectory shows zero sign of slowing.
Buffalo based quartet Aqueous never ceases to impress fans and new listeners alike as they continue to build on the momentum gained through blistering live performances and consistently flawless studio releases. The band will continue to capitalize on that effect, as they release a brand new album, Best In Show, today, October 13th, 2016.
