Following a massive 2017, playing 135+ live shows across 28 countries, LANY announces new fan-demanded tour dates. The group will embark on another headline tour this spring, hitting 9 cities across the United States. In celebration of their upcoming festival appearances, the group will hold their own “mini-festival” in between Coachella weekends at the 6,500 capacity amphitheater, Great Saltair in Salt Lake City, UT on April 18th. The news follows their previously announced international dates in Russia, Australia and Asia, including their first-ever arena show in Manila, which sold out in less than 24 hours, prompting the group to add an additional date – which has also sold out. Their new North American dates are supplemented by a round of appearances across the U.S. festival circuit this summer, including sets at Coachella, BottleRock, Governors Ball, Bonnaroo, Bunbury and more. Tickets for the tour are available to the general public today, Friday, February 9th at 10am local time.
LANY (pronounced “Lay-nee”), the Los Angeles-based trio comprised of Paul Jason Klein, Les Priest & Jake Goss, crafts dreamy pop with an R&B spirit. Releasing their first set of songs in 2014 with no social following, fans, or even photos, their take on modern alternative music immediately caught the attention of audiences, and within weeks their play counts were leaping exponentially.
Flash-forward to the summer of 2017 and the band’s debut album, LANY, peaked at No. 4 on the Billboard Top Rock Albums chart, with singles “ILYSB” and “Super Far” reaching nearly 100 million streams each. In 2017 alone, the group racked up nearly 300 million streams on Spotify and played more than 135 live shows across 28 countries.
The band has thrived within the harsh parameters of their barebones musical setup: a copy of pretty much defunct production software on a worn old Dell computer, bolstered by drum and synth apps on their iPhones. Their music reflects the spontaneity and impulsiveness of the love stories bursting out of every song without losing focus of a cohesive concept threaded through the entire record.
The group has a huge 2018 ahead of them as they continue to tour prolifically. They are set to embark on a European headline and festival tour in the spring, and play their first-ever arena show in Manila, which sold out in less than 24 hours, prompting the addition of a second date – which also sold out. They will also hit the U.S. festival circuit this summer with sets at Coachella, Governors Ball, Bonnaroo and more to be announced, on top of headline shows across North America. They are currently in the studio working on new music.
