ZZ Ward Confirms Summer Tour and Festival Run

SUMMER TOUR INCLUDES FIREFLY, SASQUATCH, KANROCKSAS,
EXCLUSIVE RECORD STORE DAY RELEASE ANNOUNCED

On the heels of her successful Fire and Shine tour, with sold-out shows in nearly every market, and a buzzworthy return to SXSW, alternative blues-soul singer ZZ Ward has announced her plans for a summer tour and festival run. The tour will kick off in Boise, ID on May 28 and include performances at some of the most anticipated music festivals including Firefly and Sasquatch, where she'll be performing alongside the likes of The Lumineers, Kendrick Lamar, Vampire Weekend, and more. An eclectic and innovative performer, Ward's mix of backporch blues and gritty hip-hop beats has been resonating with both fans and critics alike. Tickets for the tour go on-sale April 20 and a full list of dates is below.

Ward is also is set to make her mark on this year's Record Store Day with an exclusive 7" vinyl (shown above with a vintage photo of ZZ when she's 11 years old), featuring two previously unreleased recordings. On the A-side is a live cut from ZZ's sold-out show at the Troubadour and a cover of Mississippi blues singer and guitarist Son House's song 'Grinnin' in Your Face.' Listen to the cover and read an interview with ZZ at Interview Magazine. On the B-side is a song called 'Everybody Wants To Be Famous,' which is an unreleased cut from her album sessions and another collaboration with Neff-U. Listen to the song premiere at Idolator. The exclusive vinyl will be a limited release on this year's Record Store Day, April 20.
