Plain White T's Map Out Tour With Parachute
The trek is set to kick off January 27th at the Turner Hall Ballroom in Milwaukee, WI.
Plain White T's are touring in support of their latest album, Wonders of the Younger (Hollywood Records), which hit #1 on the iTunes Rock Album chart
Plain White T's frontman Tom Higgenson describes the Ian Kirkpatrick-produced Wonders of the Younger as a collection of songs designed to evoke the feeling of awe and the yearning for adventure remembered from youth.
"It's still very much a Plain White T's album," says Higgenson. "The songs are sincere and melodic, no matter what the subject matter. We want to create an experience that takes our fans to an unexpected place while still giving them songs to sing along to."
As Higgenson points out, the band is in a different place than the one that prompted hits like the twice-Grammy nominated "Hey There Delilah" and "1-2-3-4" (two songs that combined for over 5 million digital downloads) and though there's still plenty of room in their world for romantic pop, such as "Rhythm of Love" (which was penned and sung by guitarist Tim Lopez), they're also branching into some adventurous new territory. It was during a performance of Cirque du Soleil's "O" that Higgenson's idea for the new set first took shape. "It just woke up something in me – this wonder," the singer/guitarist/songwriter recalls. "It was dark yet nostalgic. I thought, I want to make an album that gives people this feeling."
