The 88 UK Tour

.
The 88 today announced a May tour that will take the group to the United Kingdom for the first time, as both opening act for Ray Davies and as headliners for additional performances of their own.

The 88 has been attracting attention and tirelessly playing the local scene, as well as opening nationally for acts like the B-52s, Smashing Pumpkins, The Flaming Lips, Matt Costa, One Republic, 311, and most recently a month-long tour of the U.S. with Ray Davies serving as both show-openers and Davies' backing band during a medley of classic Kinks songs. The 88 also once served as the late Elliott Smith's backup band, by personal request, for a memorable Orange County performance.

Recently, The 88 became the first band to record a track entirely on an iPhone, a process that was chronicled via YouTube. "Love Is The Thing" was released exclusively on iTunes, and within 24 hours became the band's most downloaded song.

The band's song "Coming Home" is currently being featured in a national television commercial for FindAProperty.com in the U.K. "Coming Home" will also hit U.K. radio in May.
