Fake Problems will hit the road this summer in support of their debut SideOneDummy release, “It’s Great To Be Alive” (Feb. 2009). The band has been on the road since they wrapped the recording and this tour will be their first set of headlining shows in support of the album. They will be joined on two separate legs by Kiss Kiss and Ninja Gun. After brilliant reviews of “It’s Great To Be Alive” from NME, Kerrang, and Rocksound; Fake Problems will hop the pond for series of shows including Reading and Leeds festivals, as well as a UK tour supporting Frank Turner.

Fake Problems recently made an appearance on Fuel TV’s Daily Habit and did an amazing live session on Daytrotter.com and in similar fashion to label mates, The Gaslight Anthem they have been gaining rave reviews from both the media and listeners alike. A recent review in Alternative Press Magazine said this about the band, “Fake Problems skillfully bob and weave through a ton of ideas: the vulnerability of Ryan Adams; the quirkiness of Modest Mouse and World/Inferno Friendship Society; the angularity of Franz Ferdinand and ‘Suffragette City’ -era David Bowie.”
