Vacationer Fall Headline Tour Announced

Article Contributed by 37-Media | Published on Tuesday, September 2, 2014

Vacationer will be on the road in support of their critically acclaimed sophomore album, Relief, this fall headlining a series of dates beginning September 29th in Charlottesville, VA. They will also play select dates with St. Lucia (tour dates listed below) and just announced, Vacationer will play the countdown to kickoff event at Power Plant Live! in Baltimore, MD with Fitz & The Tantrums on September 4th.

Relief was released, June 23rd on Downtown Records and has since been getting a lot of airplay across the country , especially on Sirius XM’s Alt Nation, as well as garnering stellar reviews.  The band recently performed on KCRW’s “Morning Becomes Eclectic (listen HERE) calling the album “… a perfect soundtrack to summer…”  while KCRW’s music blog declared it, “…a breezy, feel good pop record that I highly recommend.”  The Boston Globe says the “…songs unfurl at a leisurely pace, sounding like interludes in old movies about exotic locales, but topped with samples, hip-hop beats, and dreamy guitar lines” while The Guardian (UK) stated “If Vampire Weekend started purveying 1950s-style exotica, it might sound a bit like the music made by Vacationer, …expansive, lushly orchestrated…”

See the band perform this fall in select cities across North America. Brick + Morter will open for the band during their headline run. 

Vacationer is a collaborative effort with vocalist/bassist Kenny Vasoli and his production partners Grant Wheeler and Matthew Young from the band Body Language.
