Capitol Records, in partnership with Lazy Hooks will release In A Tidal Wave Of Mystery, the debut album from Capital Cities, on June 11. The Los Angeles based outfit — founded and fronted by Ryan Merchant and Sebu Simonian, two jingle writers who met on Craigslist — will be previewing songs from the album during its first-ever North American outing.
The “Dancing With Strangers” tour, which will feature special guest Gold Fields, will kick off on April 23 at the Crescent Ballroom in Phoenix, AZ. Capital Cities’ May 9 show at New York City’s Irving Plaza sold out two months in advance as well two nights at the El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles. All proceeds from the June 7 show at the El Rey will go to MusiCares and A Place Called Home. The band, which recently appeared at Sundance, SXSW and ULTRA, will also perform at numerous festivals, including Sasquatch! and Firefly.
