    Brother (UK) Change Their Name to Viva Brother - They are touring the US this summer

    A&M Octone recording artists Brother (UK) have changed their name to Viva Brother, and will return to the US with a new name but the same attitude. "We have just about recovered from our last trip to the States so we figured it's about time to return," said frontman Lee Newell. "We're awfully excited to see everyone again and of course to make some new friends (and enemies no doubt). The revolution continues! Viva Brother!"

    The four young lads from Slough take a break from the European festival circuit with North American dates which commence July 16th in San Diego and wrap on release day, August 2nd, in NYC.

    Tour dates are as follows:

    July 16 Chula Vista, CA Cricket Wireless Amphitheater
    July 19 Los Angeles, CA The Echo
    July 23 Chicago, IL Schubas
    July 25 Columbus, OH Univ of Ohio
    July 26 Washington, DC Black Cat
    July 27 Philadelphia, PA Kung Fu Necktie
    July 28 Allston, MA Brighton Music
    July 29 Providence, RI Waterplace Park
    July 30 Saratoga Springs, NY Putnam Den
    July 31 Montreal, QC Osheaga Festival
