Rituals of Mine, formerly Sister Crayon, have just announced an October run supporting musician and producer, Tricky. The tour kicks off in California on October 21st and will run through the end of October with stops in Los Angeles, New York, and Chicago. Tickets are on sale now and available at www.ritualsofmine.com/#Tour .
The tour announce comes a week after the duo, which is Terra Lopez and Dani Fernandez, officially changed their name to Rituals of Mine. The name change comes following the duo’s signing with Warner Bros. Records, who will release a remastered version of their critically acclaimed 2015 album Devotedon September 30th. The album is available for preorder now, and those who preorder will receive an instant download of the first single “Ride or Die.”
Terra Lopez and Dani Fernandez have been making their mark on the West Coast as electronic workhorses since 2009. They earned a loyal fanbase in California by playing countless house shows, selling out local establishments, touring relentlessly throughout the states and independently releasing two albums, Bellow (2011) and Cynic (2013). The band followed those albums with the quiet indie release of Devoted in 2015. 2015 also saw Terra unexpectedly lose two prominent figures in her life: in September, Terra lost her father to suicide, and less than six months later, she suffered another harrowing blow when her best friend Lucas Johnson passed away in a tragic accident. The band felt the need to put the Sister Crayon name to rest with them, and thus landed on the new name Rituals of Mine. Terra writes “It was a mantra that I repeated under my breath on a daily basis when the loss I was experiencing felt too heavy at times. Music, the act of creating, performing, touring, writing, singing, experimenting – all the rituals we have created to get through life.”
Rituals of Mine just wrapped a tour with label mates DEFTONES and Yelawolf, and this September will accompany The Album Leaf on the road across the U.S before joining Tricky in October. See below for all upcoming tour dates.
