Young the Giant fans rejoice! The band just extended their current tour into the spring of 2019. On Monday (Oct. 22), the California-founded band formally announced an additional 28 stops for their current North American Mirror Master tour. The second leg of the excursion will begin on Jan. 29 at the Flynn Theatre in Burlington, Vermont and conclude a month an a half later on March 9 at the McDonald Theater in Eugene, Oregon.
Sure, Sure will open for Young the Giant throughout the second leg of the tour. Pre-sale tickets for the newly added shows are currently available. General tickets will go on sale beginning this Friday, Oct. 26 at 10 a.m. local time.
The newly added dates are in support of Young the Giant’s recently released record, Mirror Master. The record was released earlier this month through Elektra Records. The record, the band’s fourth studio album, recently peaked at the No. 69 spot on Billboard‘s 200 chart.
According to a press release provided by the five-piece, the album focuses on personal self-awareness and growth.
“Within one single day, we’re all so many different people. Especially with the use of social media, we’re not just living in the now — we’re living on several different timelines simultaneously,” vocalist Sameer Gadhia explained in the press statement.
“A lot of the album came from thinking about how we have all these separations within ourselves that allow us to go about our day. We don’t have to be a certain thing; we can contradict ourselves and show all these different sides of who we are.”
Mirror Master is the follow-up to the group’s 2016 release, Home of the Strange.
For now, the complete tour itinerary for the second leg of the North American Mirror Master tour can be seen below.
