Grouplove have unveiled details for their first headlining U.S. tour of 2014. The cross-country trek will kick off on March 20th at Bogart’s in Cincinnati, Ohio, and continue into May. Tickets for most shows go on sale to the general public beginning on Friday, December 6th, with pre-sale tickets becoming available for purchase on Wednesday, December 4th. Support comes from MS MR, Smallpools, and Alex Winston.
To herald the newly announced tour, the music video for “Shark Attack” - the follow-up single from Grouplove’s acclaimed second album Spreading Rumours – has been released. Directed by award-winning director and frequent collaborator Cameron Duddy, the “Shark Attack” music video features Oscar-nominated actor John Hawkes (Winter’s Bone, HBO’s “Eastbound and Down” and “Deadwood”). “Shark Attack” will go to Alternative radio outlets in the new year and follows lead single “Ways To Go,” which climbed to #2 at the format and is at Hot AC radio now. The companion music video for “Ways To Go” has clocked over 3.5 million views to date.
On December 23rd, The Warner Sound, the official YouTube channel of the Warner Music Group, will premiere “I’m With You,” a short form documentary and concert film that chronicles a week in NYC with Grouplove during their sold-out “SeeSaw Tour” this past fall. Shot by acclaimed filmmaker Sam Erickson – known for his work with Dave Matthews Band and “Okonokos,” his groundbreaking concert film with My Morning Jacket – the film explores the history of the band and traces their unique story, combining engaging interviews with the band members and exhilarating live performance footage. A trailer for “I’m With You” can be seen below.
