Fueled By Ramen recording group Young The Giant has announced the next leg of its hugely successful Home of the Strange Tour. The North American headline dates begin Wednesday, August 2nd at Louisville, KY’s Palace Theater and then continue through late September (see attached itinerary). Support on all dates will come from Cold War Kids and Joywave. Tickets for the Home of the Strange Tour go on sale this Friday, February 24th – for complete details, please visit www.youngthegiant.com/tour.

Young The Giant is currently traveling North America on the winter leg of the Home of the Strange Tour, with most dates on the trek already long sold out. The band will also be performing at a number of upcoming festivals, including Okeechobee, FL’s Okeechobee Music Festival (March 1st), Guadalajara, MX’s Anagrama Festival (March 25th), San Antonio, TX’s Maverick Music Festival (April 7th), Knoxville, TN’s Rhythm ‘n’ Blooms Music Festival (April 9th), Gulf Shores, AL’s Hangout Music Fest (May 19th), and Cleveland, OH’s LaureLive (June 11th).



The Home of the Strange Tour celebrates Young The Giant’s third studio album, “HOME OF THE STRANGE,” which immediately ascended to #1 on the iTunes Store’s “Top Alternative Albums” chart and #3 on the overall “Top Albums” chart upon its release last August. The band heralded the release with a number of high profile television appearances, including an outdoor concert on ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” and as one of the select artists on the fall season of critically acclaimed series “Live from the Artists Den” alongside Sturgill Simpson, Panic! at the Disco, and Lumineers.  The tour’s first leg saw the band performing to sell out houses across the continent, including stops at such world famous venues as New York’s Radio City Music Hall and The Greek Theatre in Los Angeles. Young the Giant recently commemorated the tour with an exclusive video recap of their extraordinary 2016, streaming now at the band’s officialYouTube channel.

Produced by GRAMMY® Award-winner Jeff Bhasker (Jay-Z, Kanye West, Mark Ronson, fun.) and Alex Salibian (Elle King, The Band Perry), “HOME OF THE STRANGE” includes the exceptional tracks, “Amerika,” “Something To Believe In,” and the latest single “Silvertongue.” Along with its global popular success, the album has received widespread critical applause, highlighting how the SoCal-based band – all either first generation Americans or immigrants themselves – have masterfully dealt with themes of identity, tradition, and assimilation in the modern world. Frontman Sameer Gadhia touched on these topics in an interview on NPR’s “Weekend Edition” and penned a thoughtful essay for Salon.com.  Rolling Stone raved, “Young the Giant's big-tent pop mirrors an openhearted optimism about the American dream. “While ‘HOME OF THE STRANGE’ doesn't focus on the finer points of policy or directly refute rhetorical points that have been ping-ponging around the media, it does use the band's roof-raising anthems to tackle ideas that are inherent in the immigrant and first-generation American experience.” The New York Times has praised Gadhia as “one of the great contemporary rock voices.”
