In support of their highly anticipated forthcoming album Love You to Death (out June 3 on Warner Bros. Records), Tegan and Sara will hit the road this Fall for a North American headlining tour. The 40-date tour will kick off September 9th in Saskatoon and will run through November 16th in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, stopping in Montreal for a date at Metropolis on 29th October.
What’s more, for the entirety of their North American tour, Tegan and Sara have partnered with the amazing people at Plus One, who will be collecting $1.00 from every ticket sold. More info at www.plus1.org. Tickets go on sale this Friday, April 29, and will be available at http://teganandsara.com/shows.
These tour dates will follow Tegan and Sara’s previously announced sold-out shows in Toronto, Los Angeles and New York this May, where the band will preview their new music in advance of Love You to Death’s release. Tegan and Sara revealed a first glimpse of the album with the release of debut single “Boyfriend” (see video below) and new track “U-turn,” which have both been instantly embraced by fans and the media alike. Pitchfork featured “Boyfriend” as a “best new track,” praising the song as “peak Tegan and Sara,” and NYLON proclaimed it “is just what the electro-pop world needs – a mix of 80’s sheen with the group’s trademark openheartedness.” “Boyfriend” has exploded onto Canadian radio, where it was the #1 most added song last week. “U-turn” is described by FADER as a “slick piece of synth-pop that’s fully absorbed the lessons of late ‘90s, early ‘00s radio hits,” and USA Today went on to declare, “Tegan and Sara have been making perfect pop songs for as long as they’ve been around, and their latest is no exception.” TIME pronounced Tegan and Sara “bona fide pop stars,” and Buzzfeed predicted “the stars are aligned for them to become two of the biggest names in pop.”
Love You to Death is the follow up to Tegan and Sara’s breakthrough 2013 album Heartthrob. Produced by Greg Kurstin (Adele, Sia, Beck), the album is the band’s most personal yet. Love You to Death is available for pre-order now.Share this :
