Kate Tucker And The Sons Of Sweden Announce Tour Dates

Nashville’s Kate Tucker and the Sons of Sweden will embark on a summer tour following the nationally recognised Kickstarter campaign that helped fund their full-length, The Shape The Color The Feel. With a sound compared to Metric, The National and early U2, KT+ SOS will kick off their tour at Nashville’s Mercy Lounge on July 23 and then make their way throughout the Midwest, West Coast and Southeast. Tickets for the tour, as well as downloadable versions and vinyl copies of The Shape The Color The Feel, are available on KT+ SOS’s official site.

In 2013, KT+ SOS began what The Vinyl District called “…an incredibly ambitious collaborative film and music venture” in which the band used Kickstarter to help fund The Shape The Color The Feel, a visual album featuring videos for each of the tracks on the record. The story of their unique project was highlighted in Huffngton Post: “Another group of enormously talented Nashville artists are using Kickstarter to fund a photo and video series, live performances, art gallery exhibits and dance.” The entire project consists of ten music videos, three short films, a documentary and a visual art exhibit that launched in Nashville and will continue across the country.

Tucker, known as a restless spirit who has lived in Paris, Seattle, New York City and Nashville within the past decade, explained in a recent interview with Esquire why she is excited about the band’s upcoming opportunity to meet fans from across the country: “The Shape The Color The Feel would not exist without the community of artists and friends that supported and contributed to the project. We are so grateful to have worked with such incredible people in Nashville and beyond.”

KT+ SOS unveiled Blue Hotel, the second single from The Shape The Color The Feel, on the limited edition Nashville Indie Spotlight compilation, out exclusively on iTunes. The song was handpicked for the release and accompanies exclusive tracks by other local favourites, including Leagues, Matthew Perryman Jones and Katie Herzig. As a result, Blue Hotel is now in heavy rotation on Nashville’s Lightning 100 and The Shape The Color The Feel has charted on CMJ radio.
