The Dunwells Coming To America
The dates kick off in Memphis, TN on Thursday, February 23 at the 2012 International Folk Alliance Conference (IFAC).
Said the band's Joeseph Dunwell, "Last year's Folk Alliance Conference was an overwhelming experience for us, not only because we were playing our music in America for the first time, which was a dream come true, but because of the positive response we received from fellow musicians and performers. Last year's Folk Alliance was so important for us, so we couldn't think of a better place to start our U.S. tour."
The Dunwells' itinerary also includes a handful of Southwestern U.S. dates with label mates Los Lonely Boys, headline showcases in Los Angeles and New York, and a special appearance at SXSW. The confirmed itinerary is below, and more dates are expected.
"We're really looking forward to visiting all of these 'iconic' places that we've seen in the movies and on TV, such as Hollywood, New York, etc.," added The Dunwells' Dave Hanson. "To be playing shows in these cities is on every English band's list of things to do before they die, and we feel very privileged to be able to perform our music across the United States."
The Dunwells' tour is in support of Blind Sighted Faith, the band's debut release due out on February 14, 2012.
More dates expected to be announced soon.
