Frontman Sameer Gadhia of Young the Giant said, “It is with great honor that we announce our Summer 2019 North American Tour with our dear friends Fitz and the Tantrums! We’re looking forward to returning to some of these iconic venues and bringing our show outdoors again this summer. Our single “Superposition” is about two forces becoming one. It’s a song with a message that’s defied odds and garnered an overwhelming reaction. It’s perfectly fitting, then, that our co-headline concept this summer is about combining two properties. We are excited to see you out there!”
Frontman Michael “Fitz” Fitzpatrick of Fitz and the Tantrums said, “We couldn’t be more excited to take over the summer with our friends Young The Giant on this co-headline tour! This is going to be a big year for Fitz and the Tantrums. We’ve got a lot of exciting news to come that we can’t wait to share with our fans.”
This week, Young The Giant has climbed to #1 on the Alternative radio chart with “Superposition,” the new single off of their latest full length release, “MIRROR MASTER.” The track is also continuing its ascent on the Shazam Top 100, where it’s one of the chart’s top 10 rock songs, and likewise, quickly becoming a multi-format success, entering the top 10 at Triple A radio. The band recently performed “Superposition” on NBC’s “Late Show with Seth Meyers” to celebrate the kick off of their own headlining North American tour. The electrifying performance followed previous late night appearances on ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” and CBS’ “Late Show with Stephen Colbert.”
Fitz and the Tantrums are currently working on new music for 2019 with further details to be announced shortly. The band’s most recent release – 2016’s acclaimed “FITZ AND THE TANTRUMS” – featured the RIAA-certified 2x-Platinum smash “HandClap” which enjoyed top 5 chart success at multi-format radio outlets nationwide. Likewise, the song’s official companion video has amassed more than 75 MILLION views to date. “FITZ AND THE TANTRUMS” was the follow-up to the band’s breakout, major label debut, 2013’s “MORE THAN JUST A DREAM,” highlighted by two back-to-back multi-format hits in “The Walker” and “Out Of My League,” both of which reached #1 at Alternative Radio nationwide and certified Platinum by the RIAA.
