All Boyce Avenue Have Left
After almost three years of building a worldwide fan base online, Boyce Avenue kicks off its first European headline tour tonight in Hamburg, Germany. The 11-date, 12-show, tour wraps in Dublin on October 4th with a SOLD-OUT concert at the Academy 2. The band's performance in Cologne tomorrow night has also SOLD-OUT in advance.
Comprised of three brothers from Sarasota, FL, Alejandro, Fabian and Daniel Manzano, Boyce Avenue is gaining worldwide recognition, through a vast and growing online fan base, for its pop-sensible blend of acoustic rock. The band has logged more than 125 million views on YouTube and has over 200,000 subscribers to its YouTube channel, making it one of the top ranked bands on the site and the most-viewed unsigned artist in the world.
Lead singer and guitarist Alejandro Manzano comments on the band's first international tour by noting, "We are very grateful to be in a position as an independent band to be in Europe right now, thousands of miles from home, playing for fans from around the world." He adds, "Reaching out to our fans globally has always been a huge priority for us, which is why the Internet has always been a logical means of expressing ourselves and sharing our music."
In discussing the new album, bassist and backup vocalist Daniel Manzano comments, "Thanks to the outpouring of support we've received from our fans online (on YouTube, Facebook, MySpace and Twitter) over the last couple years, it's been possible recently for us to finish our album of original music and to start touring in the United States and abroad. With the completion and release of our album around the corner, we are excited to post even more videos and to tour even more for the fans." Fabian Manzano, guitarist and backup vocalist, adds "For us, that's what it's all about—maintaining a personal connection with the people whose support has made it possible for us to keep doing what we love to do."
The band of brothers recently capped off its first US headline tour in July with sellout and near capacity turnouts in such major markets as New York, D.C., Philadelphia, Boston, Chicago and Los Angeles, among others.
Boyce Avenue will return from Europe and take a short break, before returning to the road for more live appearances.
