Family Of The Year On Tour With Atlas Genius

The excitement surrounding LA-based Family Of The Year has been building steadily since the release of Loma Vista (Nettwerk Records) last summer, and there’s no sign of it slowing down this year. Today, Family Of The Year announce a Fall 2013 tour with Atlas Genius, beginning September 21st in Arizona.

In the past, the band has shared the stage with fun., Mumford & Sons, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, Walk The Moon, Good Old War and Milo Greene. With their first headline tour of 2013, the band sold out shows across the country, including New York, Chicago, Philadelphia, Minneapolis, Indianapolis, Nashville, Denver, Portland and more. This summer, the band does the festival circuit, including Lollapalooza (Chicago, IL) and Summerfest (Milwaukee, WI). See below for all upcoming tour dates.

With the impressive release of last year’s album and a stellar live show, Family Of The Year continues to garner fantastic media support. This year, the band performed “Hero” on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno (May 16), Jimmy Kimmel Live! (February 11) CONAN (February 21) and Last Call With Carson Daly (February 26 - which is their second episode in two months). Recently, MTV2 added Family Of The Year as an “Artist To Watch” and USA Today featured the band in their “On The Verge” column. All this follows other emerging artists features, including Entertainment Weekly, Billboard, Amazon, Interview Magazine and more. Watch the official music video for "Hero" above.

Since they saw their Billboard radio chart debut, Family of the Year's standout hit "Hero" reached #1 on the Triple A Top 30 Radio Chart, sitting Top 5 for a record-breaking four months. “Hero” also landed Top 15 at Alternative Radio. 

Formed in 2009, Family Of The Year is Joe Keefe (lead vocals, guitars), Sebastian Keefe (drums, vocals), James Buckey (guitars, vocals) and Christina Schroeter (keyboards, vocals).

In the coming weeks, the band will be sharing a new official music video. Stay tuned.
