Mike Rosenberg, aka Passenger, has announced a North American summer tour as part of his international tour in support of forthcoming album Whispers, out June 10. The UK-troubadour will launch the 23-city run on August 2 in Atlanta and wrap on September 14 in San Diego. All dates are listed below and go on-sale April 25.
Passenger just completed a short promo tour in the States in conjunction with the Whispers album announcement. He debuted his North American lead single “Scare Away The Dark” on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, and also appeared on VH1’s “Big Morning Buzz” and The Queen Latifah Show Show. Additionally, he was a headliner at “Live In The Vineyard,” the exclusive festival in California’s legendary Napa Valley. While in the States, Passenger also received the news that he’d been nominated for three 2014 Billboard Music Awards: Top New Artist, Top Rock Artist and Top Rock Song (“Let Her Go”), as well as an iHeartRadio Award nomination for “Best New Artist.”
Dispatch, who are currently in rehearsals for their first national concert tour in nearly 10 years, which kicks off on June 3rd at Red Rocks Amphitheatre just outside of Denver, announced today that they will release an EP of all new music this coming Tuesday, May 17th. The EP marks the first time the band has released new music for sale in over a decade.
The self-titled EP will be available on the band’s website, www.dispatchmusic.com, through iTunes and other online retailers, and will also be available for purchase on the road during the band’s highly anticipated summer tour. The band gave fans a preview of one of the EP’s tracks, “Melon Bend,” with a rousing performance of the song on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon late last month. Watch the clip above or here.
