Warner Bros sent over word that their new artist Matt Toka will be touring this spring with Breathe Carolina and The Ready Set.
The tour kicks off on March 21st in Columbia, MO, and wraps up on April 27th in Bloomington, IN.
WBR had this to say about Toka: Inspired by the storytelling of Bob Dylan, Noel Gallagher, and Billie Joe Armstrong, Toka locked himself in his one-room studio apartment to write the songs on his upcoming debut album, which he is currently recording with his idol, producer Rob Cavallo.
"The record is all about how hard life can be but you can't let the small stuff bring you down," Toka says. "There's a lot of sh*t you can't change, so make an effort to enjoy every minute. You can turn any kind of energy into something positive. If life gives you lemons, make a f**king drink."
