A Will Away Added To Head North, Light Years Tour

Last week, we told you that A Will Away has been added to this year’s Skate and Surf Festival. Today, we’re pleased to share that the Connecticut band will be hitting the road with Head North and Light Years this summer.

A Will Away will take the spot on this previously-announced tour left by No Good News, who have pulled out of their touring plans due to controversy surrounding drummer Harry Corrigan. The addition of A Will Away makes this a tour package not worth missing – the band is currently promoting their fantastic EP Bliss, which I reviewed

Charli XCX And Bleachers Announce Co-Headlining Summer Tour

In one of the better pop tours in recent memory, Bleachers and Charli XCX will be heading out on a co-headlining run this Summer with direct support from BØRNS.

Dubbed the ‘Charli And Jack Do America’ tour, the pop icon duo will be playing a relatively short run of large venue shows in North America this July and August. The tour wraps up each artist’s current touring plans and brings them into the Fall, where I believe we might see Jack Antonoff hit the studio to prepare writing for a new Bleachers record.

If you live in the Southeast or Midwest U.S., you’re in luck. The short tour runs from the band’s home state of Georgia through Florida, Illinois, Ohio, Oklahoma and finally ends in Texas. Hopefully the band makes it to the East Coast some time soon – I’m dying to see their live show.
