The 13-date tour will go from New Mexico to Missouri and end in Santa Cruz, CA, with support from New York based alt-pop artist Uwade. The tour announcement follows their 2023 fifth studio album Time Will Wait For No One that arrived via Loma Vista and received critical praise from Billboard, UPROXX, Consequence, Paste and more.

Time Will Wait For No One was produced by GRAMMY-award winning producer John Congleton (Angel Olsen, Death Cab For Cutie, St. Vincent, Sharon Van Etten), Michael Harris (Lana Del Rey, Feist), and Danny Reisch (Sun June, Other Lives).
