Detroit duo JR JR has added new summer dates to its upcoming tour in support of its self-titled third album. The band, which is Josh Epstein and Daniel Zott, will perform across the U.S. (plus one show in Mexico), as well as at several festivals.
Released in September, JR JR features the single "Gone," which has racked up more than 14 million Spotify streams and hit the Top 10 on Spotify's Viral Top 50 U.S. and Global charts. It also reached the Viral Top 50 in 21 countries. "Gone" is currently playing on 80 Alternative stations across the U.S. and climbing the radio chart, where it is second the longest-charting song at Alternative radio thus far this year. "Gone" is currently featured in the trailer for the upcoming Seth Rogen movie Sausage Party, which hits theaters on August 11th.
Says The Daily Beast: "What JR JR have become is the rare band that music journalists and bloggers and fans can all agree are damned good, possessing both the intangible cool of credibility and the pop chops that get your feet moving and head bobbing."
