Elektra recording group Saint Motel has announced details for their fall headlining tour. The cross-country trek kicks off at The Fillmore in San Francisco, CA, on October 27 and continues through November (see attached itinerary). General on-sale begins Friday, June 9 at 10am PT. Known for their inventive live shows, the band will be revealing special concepts planned for the tour as well as the support act shortly. For information on ticket presales, tour updates, and more, please visit www.saintmotel.com.
The tour supports the band’s current album “saintmotelevision,” whose audio version was released late last year. The album is highlighted by the hit single “Move” which went to #1 on Sirius/XM’s Alt Nation, Top 20 at Alternative, and Top 5 at Triple A. The follow-up single “Destroyer” is at Alternative radio now.
Always on the cutting edge, Saint Motel has created “virtualizers” – interactive and immersive companion videos that combine 360 animation and VR technology – for each song on “saintmotelevision,” thus completing the first-ever Virtual Reality album. Saint Motel has already released a number of the virtualizers from the album – most recently the companion to “Destroyer” – and will roll out the remaining videos in the coming weeks. The final 10-track collection will be launched as an interactive mobile app for iPhone and Android with exclusive content, and will also live on YouTube as a playlist.
