LUKAS GRAHAM CONFIRMS HEADLINE WORLD TOUR BEGINNING FEBRUARY 2017

TICKETS ON SALE JUNE 17

NEW SINGLE “MAMA SAID” LAUNCHES AT RADIO THIS MONTH


June 7, 2016 - Lukas Graham, whose hit single “7 Years” just went multi platinum all over the world, will embark on an expansive headlining tour early next year. The tour kicks off in February 2017 in the UK, where the band have just finished a small run of sold out shows, and crisscrosses the globe through mid-April, making stops in Ireland, Belgium, Holland, Germany, Austria, Hungary, Poland, France, Switzerland, Italy, Spain, Portugal and more along the way. The upcoming tour will see the Danish foursome graduate to theatres four to five times larger than the clubs they recently performed in during their sold-out Spring US headline tour.

Led by vocalist and songwriter Lukas Graham Forchhammer, Lukas Graham has solidified their status as the breakout act of 2016. Their hit single "7 Years," which they recently performed at the Billboard Music Awards, reached #1 in 33 countries and topped the US radio charts at both Top 40 and Hot AC radio and #2 on the Billboard Hot 100, with over 425M Spotify streams and counting. Now, the band is gearing up for the launch of their second single, “Mama Said.,” which will head to radio later this month.

Lukas Graham's self-titled debut album has received overwhelming critical acclaim since its April 1 release, debuting at #1 in Canada & Australia, #2 in the UK and New Zealand and #3 on the Billboard 200 in the US and propelling the band further into the global spotlight with what the New York Times describes as "neatly turned songs that merge the lilt of pop-soul with the quick cadences of hip-hop." Hailing from Christiania, an autonomous, artistic community in the center of Copenhagen, Lukas developed his natural talent for honest and gritty songwriting. Classically trained with the Copenhagen Boys' Choir, with a musical scope widened by his Irish folk roots and passion for hip-hop, Lukas possesses a distinct, poetic ability to capture the full range of emotions in his music.

Devin Townsend Project announce UK tour in support of new album ‘Transcendence’

Following on from the recent announcement of studio album ‘Transcendence’, due for worldwide release on 9th September, Devin Townsend Project has confirmed a much anticipated UK tour which kicks off in Bristol in March 2017. The tour will also see the band visit Manchester, Glasgow, Birmingham, London and Nottingham.

‘Transcendence’, the follow-up to 2014’s ‘Z2’ double-album (half of which was made up of the full-length ‘Sky Blue’), sees the award-winning Townsend exploring a relatively new way of working, collaborating with the entire DTP band during the writing stages of the record. “The result of this process is a record that I truly think the intention of is special” he says of the album. “I am very proud of it and everyone involved.”

The last 2 years since the release of ‘Z2’ have seen Townsend busier and more ambitious than ever, culminating last November in the release of ‘Ziltoid Live At The Royal Albert Hall’, a brilliant document of the sold-out show at the famous London venue that saw them bring the Ziltoid story to life on stage in his most impressive production yet.

Across all his bands and projects, since being discovered in 1993, the Canadian multi instrumentalist has released 23 studio albums and 3 live albums. Townsend’s trademark production style and versatile vocal delivery are rooted in metal and his albums are written to express different aspects of his personality.

The Canadian isn’t too interested in keeping an even musical keel. “Music, in my opinion, is ideally the exhaust for whatever you’re going through in life,” Townsend explains. “Rather than the focus, it should be the outcome. As such, each record just naturally leads to the next, and if they’re done correctly they become an accurate representation, like a snapshot of a particular frame of mind”.

Townsend will be joined on stage by Dave Young (guitar), Mike St-Jean (keyboards), Ryan Van Poederooyen (Drums) and Brian Waddel (drums).
