Nico Vega Add Dates Including Tour With Placebo

(PR) Los Angeles' Nico Vega announce a fresh round of tour dates today, beginning with several shows in California- including an appearance at Sunset Junction in Silver Lake- followed by a fall tour with UK alt-rockers Placebo starting on September 12th in Portland, OR.

While the band travels the country with their explosive live set, their single "Gravity" will be lighting up the airwaves with a comprehensive nationwide radio campaign.

In other news, Nico Vega's song "Beast" is featured in Marcus Dunstan's horror flick The Collector, and fans of Tony Hawk's popular Pro Skater video game can shred to the tune of "Burn Burn."

The band has been touring incessantly in support of their self-titled debut, which was released on Myspace Records earlier this year. Their scorching live show, hallmarked by the formidable presence of frontwoman Aja Volkmann, as well as guitarist Rich Koehler and drummer Dan Epand, has earned them significant praise from the press. Filter appropriately likened the band to "a musical, mythical beast." In a recent feature in 944 Magazine, the band was heralded as a "brutal love triangle of rock, funk and blues" and congratulated for its "wide musical scope, which stretches from stomach-scraping soul to unrelenting rage." The NY Post called Aja "insanely spirited," comparing her to Janis Joplin and Karen O, and hailed the band's set "a fantastic surprise."
