Vance Joy Announces ‘Riptide’ Tour

“Liberation Music is delighted to announce the return of Vance Joy and his band to local stages nationwide. Having sold out their ‘God Loves You When You’re Dancing’ Tour in April, Vance and co will take to the road again this August for the ‘Riptide’ Tour. The tour will visit Adelaide, Brisbane, Fremantle, Melbourne and Sydney, providing local fans with their last opportunity to see Vance Joy performing with his band in 2013.

Riptide has been much loved since its release earlier this year, striking a chord with radio folk, blogsters and fans alike.  It hit #1 on Hype Machine’s Most Popular Chart, has been a constant in the iTunes Top 50 Singles Chart and recently reached #12 on the ARIA Streaming chart.  The song is up to 360,000 plays on Soundcloud, whilst the whimsical video is at 300,000 views on YouTube.

Following his recent signing to Atlantic Records, Vance Joy has spent the past few weeks touring the US with American songstress, Lissie.  Much of 2013 has slipped by in a similar fashion – on the road – as he has offered his music to more and more demanding fans.  The remainder of the year will follow a similar path, with Vance criss-crossing the globe for extensive touring.  Throughout July and August, he has the honour of supporting Bernard Fanning on his sold-out Departures Tour.  He will also perform at this year’s Splendour In The Grass.  After the ‘Riptide’ Tour, the last quarter of 2013 will see more international shows across the US and Canada (including a set at the Ottawa Folk Festival, amidst company like Neil Young and Vampire Weekend), before the artist commences work on his debut album.

Joining Vance and his band on the ‘Riptide’ Tour will be Fraser A Gorman.”
