Hit single "Cool Kids" continues to soar
After a whirlwind summer as one of the most anticipated and highly praised acts of Vans Warped Tour, alt-pop band Echosmith has announced members will join American Authors on this fall's Honda Civic Tour, a three-week trek kicking off Oct. 1 in Reno, Nevada. Following that run, the band will headline a handful of shows starting Nov. 12 with stops in New York, Philadelphia, Chicago and more.
Tickets for those shows go on sale this Friday at 10 a.m. See below for a full list of dates.
The LA-based foursome is having a breakout 2014 with the success of their debut album "Talking Dreams," featuring hit single "Cool Kids," continuing to propel them into the spotlight. The song is currently No. 1 in the iTunes Alternative Chart and rapidly climbing Top 40 and Hot AC Radio charts, while the video is approaching 4 million views on YouTube. MTV has taken notice and named Echosmith an "Artist to Watch" for the year. The band recently made its late night debut performing "Cool Kids" on "Conan."
The Sierota siblings - Jamie (vocals/guitar), Sydney (vocals/keyboard), Noah (vocals/bass) and Graham (drums) - have developed a distinctive, melody-minded, new wave-influenced sound that has earned them rave reviews. Entertainment Weekly declared them "ready to break out" following their performance at SXSW; Seventeen lauded lead singer Sydney's "stunning voice"; and Nylon said, "HAIM might be front and center in terms of the whole 'family band' category, but these sisters better watch out because there's another crew of California siblings about to take over."
