Aloud’s “Exile” US tour resumes Saturday

 

After over two months of touring and a triumphant homecoming show in Boston, Aloud will return to the road this Saturday for the second leg of the Exile national tour. This leg, which includes a stop at SXSW, crosses the country again for another two months.

After releasing Exile, Aloud’s critically-acclaimed new album, the band kicked off their first coast-to-coast tour at the CMJ Music Marathon in NYC last October. On the first leg alone, the band headed west through Chicago and Denver, up the coast to Portland and down through Los Angeles and San Diego before touring back east through the Southwest, Texas, and the deep South.

Total, Aloud performed 51 shows in 28 states on the first leg of the Exile tour, which lasted from October 2010 – January 2011.

While on tour, Aloud has built up a plethora of local press in they cities they’ve visited. Amarillo Globe News wrote, “The band’s passion for playing music is revealed on stage.” Atlanta Music Guide praised their new album: “With Exile, Aloud have redefined themselves as a moody and melodic duo.” Salt Lake City Weekly described Exile as “…an album of expansive, orchestral pop,” and Southern Mississippi’s Sun Herald adds, “Exile is the most sophisticated, experimental album Aloud has recorded…. Lovers of layered, lovely old-style pop will enjoy this one.”

Aloud is fronted by singer/songwriters and co-founders Henry Beguiristain and Jen de la Osa. The couple has been writing songs and performing together since they were teenagers growing up in Miami, Florida. Joining them on tour will be drummer Mike Dawley and their long-time touring bassist Charles Haywood Murphy IV.

Aloud’s past and current schedule are listed below. For more information, the latest tour dates, or high-res press photographs of the band, please visit www.allthingsAloud.com.
