New song, 'Goodbye,' out July 14 with accompanying video
North American fall headline tour confirmed; artist presale July 11, general on sale July 14
Echosmith returns with their highly anticipated sophomore album, "Inside A Dream," out Friday, Sept. 29, via Warner Bros. Records. The 11-song set marks the long-awaited follow-up to their 2013 gold-certified debut "Talking Dreams," which spawned the triple-platinum breakout hit "Cool Kids." A new track, "Goodbye," will be released this Friday, alongside the official music video.
Following the album release, the band will embark on a six-week North American tour, kicking off Oct. 5 in Kansas City, Missouri. The artist presale - with a limited number of tickets and VIP packages - will start on at 10 a.m. local time on Tuesday, while the general on-sale will begin at 10 a.m. Friday. To access the presale, fans will need to sign up for Echosmith's mailing list at echosmith.com
The band will perform at the Phoenix Concert Theatre in Toronto on Sunday, Nov. 5.
"Inside A Dream" marks a new and exciting direction for the L.A.-based alt-pop trio, showcasing a more mature and evolved sound. Led by charismatic frontwoman Sydney Sierota and rounded out by her brothers Noah (bass) and Graham (drums), the tight-knit siblings had to come to grips with the departure of big brother and guitar player Jamie, who chose to leave the band after the last album in order to spend more time with his wife and son.
"We had to find ourselves as a trio instead of a quartet," Noah said.
"At that point, we never had another musician on stage with us," Sydney said. "That literally forced us on a journey of having to discover this sound. We still had electric guitars, but they weren't the center of the music anymore."
In order to bring that vision to life, the group utilized vintage synths, keys and drum machines. As a result, "Inside A Dream" is awash in shimmering synths, airy guitars and heavenly vocals that wouldn't be out of place blasting from an '80s transistor radio during an episode of "Stranger Things."
Echosmith first emerged onto the scene in 2013, with the success of their debut album "Talking Dreams." Triple-platinum hit "Cool Kids" and platinum-certified "Bright" propelled them into the spotlight. They quickly earned rave reviews from the likes of ELLE, Rolling Stone, Teen Vogue, Billboard, NYLON and more for their distinctive melody-minded, new wave-influenced sound.
The Sierotas - Sydney (vocals/keyboard), Noah (vocals/bass) and Graham (drums) - have played to crowds of thousands at festivals and with sold-out shows in the U.S. and Europe, and even joined Taylor Swift as special guests on her "1989" Tour in Philadelphia to perform "Cool Kids."
