The Bacon Brothers are eager to announce the tour dates for their upcoming 'Out of Memory Tour.' The band will be embarking on an East Coast run commencing April 3rd in Ridgefield, CT. Tickets go on sale Friday 12/17 at 10am EST at baconbros.com. Kevin stated, "We're excited to get back out and play live. We've pulled some new tunes together, and we like nothing better than sharing new music with people because you never know how they will react!" Michael Bacon opines, "It feels good to get back in the saddle, vocal exercising, building up callouses, and hanging with my brother and our amazing band."
The pandemic was a fertile time creatively for the brothers. They released a new album, The Way We Love, out of which came an array of accompanying videos. In April 2020, they released the video for "She-Zee-Zee (Easy on My Eyes.") AmericanSongwriter premiered the video for "The Way We Love" in May 2020. "Corona Tune" was premiered by PopMatters in July 2020. In September 2020, the video for "Bigger" was presented as a World Premiere by Ditty TV. And lastly, American Songwriter premiered the brother's most recent video, "British Invasion," in July 2021. While in the midst of producing music videos, Kevin & Michael have also spent the past year serving as judges in the American Songwriter Magazine 2021 Lyric Competition.
On September 11th, The Bacon's performed at the 9/11 Memorial for The Grand Ole Opry's 20th Anniversary September 11th tribute. Watch their moving performance of "Unhappy Birthday" here.
