STS9 ON TOUR THIS SPRING
2013 is going to be a busy year for STS9. In addition to their headlining Winter Tour for February and March—their first month-long
coast outing in over two years—the instrumental electronic rock band, hailed as "one of the country's most
innovative outfits around" by XLR8R, has just announced a new run of dates for April along with various festival
appearances. STS9 is also currently in the studio working on a brand new album to be released later this year.
Kicking off April 11 in Minneapolis, the new tour dates will bring STS9 east, stopping in such cities as Madison,
Pittsburgh, Buffalo and Syracuse before hitting New York City Saturday, April 20 at Roseland Ballroom. The 15-date
will then hit the Southeast with shows in Richmond, Wilmington, Savannah, Orlando and Ft. Lauderdale before
April 27 in St. Petersburg.
These new spring shows will come on the heels of the group's upcoming 25-date Winter Tour that starts February 21
Portland, OR and features back-to-back shows in numerous markets including Lawrence, KS, Chicago, Athens and
Asheville. Support acts for the Winter Tour have also just been revealed. For the shows in the Pacific Northwest and
Northern California (including Portland, Seattle, Eugene and Chico), STS9 will be joined by Russ Liquid, and when the
group hits Lake Tahoe, Oakland and Los Angeles (Saturday, March 2 at The Palladium), Tycho will be the support act.
Nashville buzz artist Cherub will open the shows in Tulsa and Dallas, Project Aspect and Raw Russ will split nights for
the two Lawrence, KS shows and Maserati will help support their Midwest shows in St. Louis, Milwaukee and Chicago,
where they will be performing at the Congress Theater on March 16 and then an already sold-out House of Blues
March 17. To close out the tour, Minnesota will be the support act when STS9 hit the South for shows in Charleston
sold out back-to-back nights in both Athens and Asheville. See below for full tour dates.
In addition to their own headlining shows, STS9 is also set to perform at various music festivals throughout the U.S.
including headlining slots at the BUKU Music + Art Project in New Orleans March 9 (where they'll perform 2 sets) and
Snowball Music Festival in Winter Park, CO March 10. STS9 will also make main stage appearances at the Summer
Music Festival in Chillicothe, IL and the Wakarusa Music Festival in Ozark, AR this spring.
STS9—Hunter Brown (guitar/keys), Jeffree Lerner (percussion), David Murphy (bass/synths), David Phipps (keyboards)
and Zach Velmer (drums)—are currently in the studio working on their 12th album, set for release later this year on
self-owned record label, 1320 Records. Their latest studio EP, When The Dust Settles, was released in 2011 and
at #1 on the iTunes Electronic Chart and landed them in Billboard's Top 25 album chart.
