The Lumineers

Denver, Colorado’s The Lumineers released their eponymous debut album through Nashville’s Dualtone in 2012. The triple platinum album garnered two GRAMMY nominations and spawned the chart-topping platinum singles, “Ho Hey” and “Stubborn Love”. The band also served as Saturday Night Live’s musical guest on January 19, 2013.

After years of touring the world in support of their debut album, the band released the follow up Cleopatra on Dualtone, in 2016. The platinum album debuted #1 on both Billboard’s Top 200 Albums Chart and the UK Albums Chart and featured the gold title track as well as the platinum single, “Ophelia”. The tour in support of Cleopatra included two sold out shows at Madison Square Garden and one at the Hollywood Bowl.

The band has also supported two of their musical heroes, including opening up for Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers on his last tour as well as U2 on their “Joshua Tree Tour” in 2017. The band was also invited as guests to visit the Obama White House twice in 2016.

The Revivalists

Some people say luck is the intersection of hard work and opportunity. The Revivalists have been on an unbelievable ride where ten years of tireless hard work was unexpectedly revved up by the wrongly dubbed “overnight success” of the gold-selling #1 single “Wish I Knew You.” Like any enduring band worth its salt, they set their sights on what’s next, buckling down and turning up with an album full of tunes marked by moments of sonic complexity, celebration, and catharsis, taking their songcraft to a whole new level.

Sharon Van Etten

Sharon Van Etten’s Remind Me Tomorrow comes four years after Are We There, and reckons with the life that gets lived when you put off the small and inevitable maintenance in favor of something more present. Throughout Remind Me Tomorrow, Sharon Van Etten veers towards the driving, dark glimmer moods that have illuminated the edges of her music and pursues them full force. With curling low vocals and brave intimacy, Remind Me Tomorrow is an ambitious album that provokes our most sensitive impulses: reckless affections, spirited nurturing, and tender courage.

Catfish & the Bottlemen

Catfish and the Bottlemen are practically of “no fixed abode” due to near constant touring and recording since 2014, when their platinum-certified debut album The Balcony surfaced. Preparing fans for a raft of new material to follow their 2016 gold-certified album The Ride, the band is led out of the studio and onto even bigger stages by venerated frontman and songwriter, Van McCann, along with Johnny Bond (lead guitar), Benji Blakeway (bass), and Bob Hall (drums).    

Their eagerly anticipated 2019 live announcements come following a triumphant summer that saw them command headline slots across several major UK festivals, and break new ground internationally appearing at top festivals in Italy, Spain, France, and the United States. The past eighteen months has seen the band claim their place as a bona fide arena band at home, adding an already sold-out UK arena tour in February 2019 to an impressive list of previously conquered stages.

They are also finding time to revisit Australia for the third time in two years when they kick off a national tour in Tasmania at the end of 2018.   Audiences from Manchester to Melbourne, London to Los Angeles, Newcastle to New York, and everywhere in between have been engulfed by the swell of eager sentiment propelled from a vociferous fanbase. Catfish and the Bottlemen possess a magnetic and dynamic focal point in McCann, renowned for posing everyday, easily-identifiable observations through his lyrics.
