Embarking on their third national headlining tour in less than a year, Nucleus will be hitting the road again this summer to bring their unique musical experience to clubs and theaters around the country. Beginning on May 29th in Orlando, Florida, the tour will head up the East Coast to New York for a two-week run, then loop out to California and back. The tour officially concludes August 10th back in Ithaca, New York, on the band's two year anniversary, after having played fifty shows in just over two months.
Through the last year of touring, Nucleus has earned a wide reputaion for playing consistently interesting and high quality live shows. It's all about the music. Playful ambition and attention to detail enable this quartet to navigate a wide range of musical frontiers, creating a sound that is at once divers and focused. Amid instrumental compositions and flights of improvisation, the time also comes for a solid tune with some good vocals and, just when you need it, Nucleus delivers. This music can provide the listener with a breath of fresh air, or just as easily be a psychoactive assault. Everyone goeshome satisfied.
Currently members of the Homegrown Music Network, in June Nucleus will be the "Band of the Month" in NY's Revolving Door and Missouri's moheads.com, as well as Arizona's azheads.com in July.
So don't be the last to know. Nucleus will be out all summer, playing coast to coast to coast, to bring this highly creative experience to as many appreciative ears as possible. For music downloads, more about the band, and the official tour schedule, check out NucleusMusic.com.
