Since interviewing Bryce Avary, better known as the energetic pop act The Rocket Summer, last month about his new album, ZOETIC (out February 26th), I’ve been eagerly awaiting the tour announcement he hinted was coming — and now it’s here!

ZOETIC promises to be a genre-blending album unlike anything we’ve heard thus far from the multitalented Avary. After growing deep pop roots, he is now leaning more towards indie rock (think The Naked and Famous), as evidenced by the forthcoming album’s debut single, “Same Air.” It’ll be thrilling to see the new songs come to life during the tour’s April 12th stop here at The Troubadour.

The Rocket Summer shows have consistently been some of the most uplifting, joyful concerts I’ve ever attended, and since Avary secluded himself for almost a year to write, record, and mix the new album himself, I’m sure he’s more than ready to get back on the road and give it his all — and then some.

Supporting the first half of the tour will be FARRO, the new project by ex-Paramore guitarist Josh Farro. Tickets are available now, with some dates offering VIP packages that include an acoustic pre-show performance and meet and greet with Avary. Grab tickets today, and pick up ZOETIC the day it’s released to make sure you’re ready for the pit sing-alongs that come with every The Rocket Summer show.
