Robbers on High Street Tour


Robbers On High Street
Robbers on High Street are excited to announce a string of national tour dates in support of their sophomore album, GRAND ANIMALS (Scratchie/New Line Records), which Spin praised for its "subtle orchestrations whose airy ambiance hints at the chameleon funk of David Bowie and the dance-foor minimalism of early B-52's." Beginning September 21 in Philadelphia, PA, the New York-based band will embark on back-to-back co-headlining tours with Longwave and Great Northern.

GRAND ANIMALS, which follows the band's critically-acclaimed 2005 debut, TREE CITY, incorporates everything from jazz organs to tubas, to twangy guitars to handclaps to bolster their melodies, creating a more complex, more mature sound for Robbers on High Street's sophomore effort. Along with Alternative Press, Playboy, Performing Songwriter, Jane and the Los Angeles Tines, The New York Daily News praised GRAND ANIMALS for "filtering fitful bits of European waltzes, Brazilian bossa novas and British music hall into their highly structured rock songs, the Robbers have devised a herky-jerky mélange that catches the ear in unexpected ways."
