Solid Gold Spring Tour includes Secret Record Store Gig
Kicking off with a home state show in Morris, MN, and closing with a secret "Record Store Day" event in Minneapolis, the band will spend two weeks in the Midwest and East Coast supporting their brand new physical release the Synchronize EP. (See dates below.)
The EP features 2 versions of the title track, one of which boasts a stunning remix by Morgan Kibby of M83 fame (a/k/a White Sea) and also breaks down Kenny Loggins' Top Gun smash hit, "Danger Zone" with an unexpected, spaced-out rendition that makes you finally realize that the song is actually pretty darn good. Hitting #69 on CMJ's Top 200 and still climbing up the charts, the EP is making a splash nationwide.
In addition, the video for Solid Gold's "Matter Of Time" has been taking over TV sets for the past 3 weeks with rotation on MTV2/MTVU and has since gotten "Buzzworthy" status prompting the band hosting MTV2's popular Subterranean show on March 2nd. The song and video are available to preview at www.greenlabelsound.com/artists/solid-gold.
Solid Gold's debut LP, Bodies Of Water, also sees a re-release this month through Best Buy and indie stores nationwide. Featuring the sexy, funked out, "Bible Thumper," the LP not only raised the hands of their hometown scribes, but sent ripples over the pond, prompting the NME to proclaim, "This totally, TOTALLY addictive piece of laid-back, twinkling Minneapolis funkiness, has us mercilessly hooked." and the Guardian UK to echo the sentiment by stating, "We swear to god, if we had any wedge, we'd sign them ourselves."
The band will be announcing West Coast dates for April and May in the coming weeks so please stay tuned for the latest:
Fri-Apr-02 Morris, MN Old # 1 Bar and Grill
