Critically acclaimed UK band, Dry the River, have announced additional US tour dates for this summer.  The tour dates will begin on July 31st in Indianapolis and continue through October 14th at the Austin City Limits Festival in Austin, TX. They will also be playing at this year’s Lollapalooza on August 3rd in Chicago.


The band will be touring in support of their debut album, Shallow Bed, which was released on RCA Records on April 17th.  The album was produced by Peter Katis (Interpol and The National) and recorded in Connecticut.


The band has spent the first half of 2012 touring all over the US alongside acts such as Bowerbirds and Alabama Shakes and also headlining their own largely sold-out US tour. 

Billboard.Biz claimed, “Eyes were glued to the band during their doo-wop moments when Liddle, Taylor and Miller sang harmonies,” while The Village Voice stated, “openers Dry The River brought their more-rock-than-folk to the table and almost upstaged the headliners.”  They were recently featured on NPR’s nationally-syndicated All Things Considered and were voted one of Rolling Stone’s “Top 25 acts to see at SXSW”.


Dry the River has been enjoying an incredible run of critical success in their native UK by landing on the super exclusive BBC Sound of 2012 list, hitting #1 on the NME Chart and being named one of British GQ’s “100 Best Things in the World Right Now” and Q Magazine’s “Faces of 2012.”
