Strawberry Girls Announce First Headlining Tour

Band kicks off Summer with 25 city run
     The Strawberry Girls have had an exciting past year between the “Italian Ghosts” release and their two appearances on NBC’s “Last Call With Carson Daly.” They’ve stayed busy playing shows in California and are ready to hit many of the big cities in the U.S. and reconnect with fans they’ve met on previous tours.
     Strawberry Girls are excited to get back on the road and will be sharing the stage with direct support from Comrades and opener Belle Noire. Collectively, the band shared, “It’s been over a year since our last tour, so we’re excited to get back on the road and play a brand new set of songs.”  Additionally, the band explained how they look forward to playing the song ‘Gospel’, every night. It’s fitting that the track features Belle Noire’s vocalist Joey Lancaster, making the tour that much more special with the longtime friends performing together.
     The tour kicks off on June 5th in Santa Cruz, CA and wraps up on June 29th in Redding, CA making the cross country trek 25 shows in 25 days.
About Strawberry Girls
     When an eclectic group of individuals comes together with an idea to create something fresh, the results can often be outstanding. Such is the case with the experimental rock trio Strawberry Girls. These guys from California were founded by ex-Dance Gavin Dance guitarist Zachary Garren after he crossed paths with drummer Ben Rossett and bassist Ian Jennings. Although the band has worked with guest vocalists, they have remained an instrumental three piece. The album French Ghetto includes vocal appearances by Kurt Travis (A Lot Like Birds, ex Dance Gavin Dance), Nic Newsham (Gatsby’s American Dream), Shane Smit, Kathleen Mae, and Gavin Mulkey. “Our sound was originally built from a desire to practice and play as much as possible, without being restricted by the schedules of many different band members,” says Garren. However, what originally began as an invention out of necessity, became much more than that. Strawberry Girls take a simplistic, yet sometimes technical approach to songwriting by mending parts together that get stuck in your head and compel you to listen to them over and over again.

    Strawberry Girls have gone back into the studio to record their album “American Graffiti” and are excited for fans to hear the new songs. “We can’t wait for everyone to hear American Graffiti, an album we’ve been writing for over two years. We put a ton of work into making this our best album so far, not just musically, but sonically, too. It’s a bit different than our previous releases and we explore a lot more musical territory with this album. We care about every single note we chose to play on American Graffiti and know it shows.” Garren explained.

“American Graffiti” was released on November 13, 2015 and hit #22 on the Billboard New Artist Chart. The band has been consistently playing shows since the release including the 10 year anniversary Dance Gavin Dance run and the sold out Chon tour.

In 2016, Strawberry Girls made their national television debut when they appeared on Last Call With Carson Daly. The feature included live footage from one of their LA shows and they will be appearing on the show again in 2017. The band also went back into the studio to work on their upcoming album.

     The Strawberry Girls released “Italian Ghosts” (previously released in 2011) on February 17, 2017. The band re-recorded the original album and will also include four brand new tracks. The record features guest vocals from Nic Newsham, Kathleen Delano, B Rolla, Joey Lancaster, Mark Banks, Sarah Glass and Jenna Fournier.
