THE ROCKET SUMMER’s vinyl release for the 10 year anniversary of Do You Feel has charted at #20 on the Billboard Vinyl Albums Chart. Released on June 2, this news comes before the start of The Rocket Summer’s 10 year tour for Do You Feel that kicks off next month in Texas.
“Do You Feel is a special album within the Rocket Summer community,” says The Rocket Summer’s own BRYCE AVARY. “Fans have been asking since the album’s original release 10 years ago if it would ever finally come out on vinyl. I think I’ve been longing for it maybe just as much… As a vinyl collector myself, there’s just something about the experience of connecting to the music in a more tangible, almost spiritual way,” continues Avary. “So now after 10 years, getting to actually hold it, open the gatefold and know that fans will hear these songs off this white vinyl from their turntables is kind of a cathartic feeling that fills a long-standing void; both a mental one and a physical void on the actual record shelf where there’s been a space right in the middle of the TRS LPs. It took a long time to get to this point. So to finally see it is wonderful.”
With official support from 888, the Do You Feel 10 Year Anniversary Tour kicks off in his home state of Texas on July 20 at Austin’s Antone’s and circles North America, hitting venues such as Dallas’ Trees (July 21), NYC’s Gramercy Theatre (August 3), Toronto’s The Mod Club (August 8), Chicago’s The Bottom Lounge (August 12), SF’s Slim’s (Aug. 24), and Los Angeles’ The Roxy (August 25).
