Billy Raffoul Releases “Easy Tiger”

Singer/songwriter Billy Raffoul releases a new song today.  “Easy Tiger” follows the release of Raffoul’s Running Wild EP which came out on Interscope Records at the end of April as the singer began a tour supporting Parachute. “Easy Tiger” is available now at all digital retailers. Listen to “Easy Tiger” HERE.

Raffoul recently released “The Making of Running Wild” a look inside the recording session for his sophomore album featuring video footage of the session, as well as behind the scenes, fly-on-the-wall footage and studio stills. All pieces were shot, pieced together and edited by Jesse Deflorio. Watch the clip HERE.

Growing up in the small farming town of Leamington, Ontario, Raffoul first started writing songs at age 10, thanks in no small part to the influence of his father—a musician who’s opened for everyone from Joe Cocker to Bon Jovi. After landing his first paying gig—playing to long-haul drivers at a local truck stop—Raffoul began playing at nearby bars and clubs at age 16, often driving into Detroit for shows. He eventually connected with a manager and moved down to Nashville to push forward with his music career. Soon after scoring a deal with Interscope Records, Raffoul released the critically hailed song “Driver”and followed that with his debut EP 1975 in June 2018 which featured the fan favorite “Acoustic.” Critical praise followed with NPR raving, “Billy Raffoul has stepped into the spotlight.” Over the past few years, Raffoul has opened for heavyweight artists like, Kings of Leon, X Ambassadors, NEEDTOBREATHE and Kale, captivating crowds with his understated yet intensely passionate stage presence. 

See below for a complete list of remaining Billy Raffoul tour dates supporting Parachute. Raffoul is hitting stages with a stripped-back performance currently featuring only Raffoul, his guitar, and his drum pedals.

Phantogram “Into Happiness”

Phantogram are officially back! Today, the duo returns with their new single “Into Happiness”—listen and share HERE.
 
Announcing their return,
 Phantogram wrote a special letter to fans, noting about the song that it “embodies the personal journey that both of us have taken since we released Three; it’s been a long path, coming out of the darkness and into the light.”
 
“Into Happiness” is
 Phantogram’s first release in three years since their 2016 chart-topping and career-defining album, Three, which featured lead single “You Don’t Get Me High Anymore.” In celebration of this new chapter for the band, they will be touring North America this summer, kicking off on August 16th in Reno, NV and making stops at New York’s King Theater on September 5th, Washington, D.C.’s The Anthem on September 6th, Atlanta’s Tabernacle on September 9th and more, as well as playing festival sets at Life Is Beautiful, Hopscotch Music Festival and others. The full list of tour dates can be found below, and tickets are available now at phantogram.com. Stay tuned for more from Phantogram!
 
Phantogram – the New York duo of Josh Carter and Sarah Barthel— has continued to change the zeitgeist for almost a decade by consistently challenging it with their signature blend of hard-hitting beats, guitar-driven dark psychedelia, and electronic pop. Since the arrival of 2010’s Barsuk Records debut release Eyelid Movies, the pair has amassed nearly half-a-billion streams, achieved two Gold-Certified singles in the form of “Fall In Love” and “When I’m Small,” headlined sold out shows worldwide, become a festival staple, and toured with artists including The xx, Muse, M83, Alt-J and more.
 
Their 2016 third full-length,
 Three, reached career-high positions on the Billboard Top 200 chart (#9) and Billboard Top Albums Sales chart (#5), as the lead single “You Don’t Get Me High Anymore” climbed the alternative radio charts. The album was also met with critical acclaim from Pitchfork, Billboard, The New York Times, Entertainment Weekly, People, Vogue, New York Magazine, The FADER, Stereogum, NYLON, PAPER and many others.
 
Three
 was completed in the wake of Barthel’s sister’s passing due to suicide, a shattering event which brought suicide prevention awareness to the forefront of the band’s consciousness and has informed their charitable giving and community outreach ever since, thus their decision to donate a portion of ticket sales to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. One dollar from the purchase of each ticket to their upcoming headline performances will be donated to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.

The acoustic version was recorded in London with Matt Schwartz who produced YUNGBLUD’s full length debut album, 21 Century Liability.  The original version has over 20 million combined streams.  

“I wanted to just get in the studio with the boys and totally strip it back. This is such an important record for me so I was buzzin to bring it back to something raw.”

Last month YUNGBLUD released Live In Atlanta recorded during his sold-out October 10, 2018 show at Vinyl. The 12-track set kicks off with “21 Century Liability” and includes searing versions of “I Love You, Will You Marry Me,” “Psychotic Kids,” “California” and “Die For The Hype.”

Maggie Rogers Announces North American Tour Dates

 Just before launching her sold-out spring tour tonight, Maggie Rogers announced a new series of North American dates. The Heard It In A Past Life tour will kick off on July 26 at Thompson’s Point in Portland, ME. The outing will include a two-night stand at New York City’s Radio City Music Hall (October 1 & 2) and shows at the Greek Theatre in Berkeley, CA (September 20), Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium (October 15) and ACL Live at The Moody Theater in Austin (October 19).  Empress Of and Jacob Banks will join Rogers as support. Visit https://www.maggierogers.com/live/ for itinerary. The acclaimed producer/songwriter/performer will also play numerous festivals, including Coachella. 

 

Pre-sale tickets for the summer/fall shows go on sale to members of Rogers’ fan club on Monday, March 25th.  The AMEX pre-sale begins on Monday, March 25thand the Spotify pre-sale starts on Wednesday, March 27th.  Tickets go on sale to the general public here on Friday, March 29th, at 10:00 AM local time. AEG Presents will present the majority of Rogers’ fall tour. The remaining dates will be presented by independent promoters. Rogers recently wrapped up a tour of the U.K., Ireland and Europe. At London’s O2 Academy Brixton, Florence Welch of Florence + The Machine joined her onstage for a performance of “Light On.”

 

Rogers is touring in support of her Capitol Records debut album, Heard It In A Past Life, which entered Billboard’s Top Album Sales chart at No. 1 and charted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200. It has sold nearly 200,000 album adjusted units to date with cumulative streams across all tracks exceeding 400 million. Her current single, “Light On,” topped Billboard’s Adult Alternative Songs chart for two consecutive weeks. Rogers recently performed “Burning,” another track from the album, on “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert.” View here.

 

In this feature, The New York Times said, “‘Heard It in a Past Life’ is a collection of buoyant electronic pop songs, but the lyrics are unmistakably the work of an introvert struggling to recalibrate.” Rolling Stone awarded the album four stars and hailed it as “a laser focused statement with nary a wasted lyric or synth line.”TIME said, “The album confirms Rogers as a tender but powerful musical force, putting her in the company of a group of solo female artists claiming space outside of the typical machines of pop, country or R&B.” NPR Music noted, “’Heard It In A Past Life’ (is) smart sparkling pop.”

 

Maggie Rogers grew up in Easton, Maryland. After graduating from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, she released her critically acclaimed debut EP, Now That The Light Is Fading. The BBC, Tidal, Google Play, Vevo, Pandora and numerous publications – including Rolling StoneNYLON, SPINBillboard and more – have tipped her as an artist to watch. NPR named her one of its Favorite Musicians and The New Yorker declares, “Maggie Rogers is an artist of her time.”  Rogers’ television performances include “Saturday Night Live,” “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” “Late Night with Seth Meyers,” “The Late Late Show with James Corden” and “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.” Named as the first YouTube Artist On The Rise (AOTR) of 2019, she has also been included in Twitter Music’s #ArtistToFollow, Amazon’s First And Last and Pandora’s Drumbeats programs.

He also had a Beats by Dre ad, and was featured on Eminem‘s ‘MMLP2’ album. Commons won Music Week’s Sync Artist Of The Year in 2016.
