Sunflower Bean Expand U.S. Tour

New York trio Sunflower Bean have announced additional U.S. tour dates in support of their new album, Twentytwo In Blue, out on March 23 via Mom + Pop.

The band will take their new album on tour across North America and Europe from March through July, with support from Dream Wife, SORRY and The Nude Party.

Twentytwo In Blue is the band’s second studio album and they’ve already revealed two singles from the record, “I Was A Fool” and “Crisis Fest.”

While “I Was A Fool” is a sweet, almost funky, call-and-response slow jam, “Crisis Fest” appears to be another light-hearted pop-rock track, as indicated by its soaring melodies, but below the surface, it’s a sharp call to action, inspired by their 2016 Human Ceremony tour and meant to celebrate the young crowds that come to their shows to lose themselves in the once-in-a-lifetime experience of live music.

Both singles were accompanied by Andy Deluca-directed videos: “I Was Fool” featured a high school prom theme, while “Crisis Fest” depicted the wild, dedicated herd of young fans that attend Sunflower Bean’s shows and lose their inhibitions.

Check out their upcoming world tour dates below, beneath the band’s 2016 Daytrotter Session, and preorder Twentytwo In Blue here.
