Gomez Add New Fall Tour Dates
Tue, 16 Aug 2011 12:41:03
Gomez have added some exciting performance dates to their fall tour! They will be headlining KPRI's first annual StreetBeat San Diego event on Oct. 1 along with O.A.R. and will be making an appearance at the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival in San Francisco on Oct. 2.
After a whirlwind summer, seeing the release of their seventh studio album Whatever's on Your Mind, Gomez will be touring in support of their latest effort throughout September and October. Along with the newly added dates, Gomez will be performing at Austin City Limits Music Festival and making stops at Denver's Ogden Theatre, LA's House of Blues and many more cities across the West coast. Full list of dates is below!
Serving as the follow-up to their acclaimed 2009 release, A New Tide, Whatever's On Your Mind sees Gomez (Ben Ottewell, Tom Gray, Paul "Blackie" Blackburn, Ian Ball and Olly Peacock) pushing their limits in a way we have not yet heard. The band partnered up with longtime friend, Sam Farrar (Phantom Planet) to co-produce and sought out to feature other artist friends on the record, Luke Steele (Empire of the Sun, Sleepy Jackson) and Stuart Bogie (Antibalas, TV on the Radio, Iron & Wine). Whatever's On Your Mind finds Gomez driving forward on a beautifully lush and dynamic album. There is a fresh feeling of rebirth and awakening. One to raise a smile even from the naysayers. A broad grin from the rest of us. Ear-to-ear, for sure.
