Beat Connection Announces Its First Headlining North American Tour
Behind Palace Garden Debut LP, Out Later This Year
Seattle-based Beat Connection has announced its first North American headlining tour with White Arrowsthis summer after making a dynamic SXSW debut earlier this month. The quartet embarked on its first US tour with STRFKR this past September, performing to sold-out rooms and earning rave reviews for their fantastic live set. They will revisit these cities and all the major markets throughout the country, kicking off their first headlining show as a four-piece in Seattle this Thursday, April 5th. Tickets for the tour go on sale this Saturday, April 7th. Recently premiering its track 'Think/Feel' (featuring Chelsey Scheffe) with The FADER, the group is now readying its first full-length Palace Garden album, due later this year with Tender Age / Moshi Moshi.
Beat Connection began when members Jordan Koplowitz and Reed Juenger met in 2008 as freshmen at the University of Washington and started making late-summer-appropriate house music in Garageband.Crafting dorm-room beats and venturing into DJing gigs, together they worked towards their last year's Surf Noir EP, which received accolades from Pitchfork, KEXP, Death + Taxes, The Seattle Times and The Seattle Weekly, deeming them "Best New Band of 2011." With the recent addition of Tom Eddy as lead vocalist, and drummer Jarred Katz, Beat Connection is ready to hit the road as a full band.
