Earlier this month, (Sandy) Alex G concluded a five-week long North American tour with a spectacular sold-out performance in his hometown of Philadelphia, marking his biggest headline show to date. Raring to get back on the road, (Sandy) Alex G has today announced a run of seven dates supporting Fleet Foxes with two stops at Toronto’s Massey Hall on August 4 and 5. Full tour details below and tickets on sale Friday, July 21.
Since concluding the previous tour, Alex has kept busy - this past Friday, Alex joined Frank Ocean onstage at Lovebox Festival in London for his headline performance, playing guitar in Ocean’s band.
In May, (Sandy) Alex G released his 8th full-length album Rocket. Hailed by many as his most accomplished work to date, Rocket features standout singles “Bobby”, “Proud”, and “Sportstar” which you can listen to below. Additionally, watch (Sandy) Alex G perform live for The New York Times HERE.
Rocket is the Philadelphia-based artist’s eighth full-length release—an assured statement that follows a slate of humble masterpieces, many of them self-recorded and self-released, stretching from 2010’s RACE to his 2015 Domino debut, Beach Music. Rocket’s sessions began shortly after Beach Music’s ended, with Alex tracking songs at home, by himself and with friends, in the gaps between a hectic 2015 and 2016 touring schedule. Rocket was mixed by Jacob Portrait (Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Bass Drum of Death), who also lent his hand to Beach Music, giving the album a fine-tuning that retains the homespun personality of earlier efforts.
Rocket is available now on LP, CD, cassette and digital download.
