trrroooooouuubbbbbllllleeeee, trouble coming down !!!

Chicago icons Grapetooth have announced their first North American headline tour, including an appearance at Pitchfork Music Festival. Following the success of their debut album the band has played few, but epic sold out shows in both Chicago and New York. Featured in Paste's 25 Best Live Acts of 2018 the duo's sets are already the stuff of legend –

"...there was more energy packed into that 40-minute set than any show I’d been to that year. There was wild dancing and surprise guest appearances. There were bottles swigged and haircuts given. And when all the kids bum-rushed the stage during “Trouble”—now a fixture of their live act—it was genuinely enlightening, or at the very least just laugh-out-loud joyful. And when I’m old and washed-up and repeating this same story to the kids who just want to buy some beer, I won’t give a damn, because it’s important for everyone to know just how fun it was to see Grapetooth live."

He right. We know 'cause we were there, though we regretfully didn't get in on the stage-haircuts. Rolling Stone also dubbed them an Artist You Need To Know for their "electrifying debut LP and a reputation as one of Chicago’s wildest live acts."

Believe the hype. Find Grapetooth's full run of tour dates below joined by James Swanberg & IAN SWEET. Tickets go onsale this Friday, 3/8 @ 10am local time and we don't imagine they'll last long.

a blessed Wednesday indeed ~
