ATO Records recording artist Gomez has announced a national tour with dates confirmed throughout the Spring and Summer of 2009. The band will be touring in support of its just-released sixth studio record “A New Tide.” The tour will kick off in Detroit, MI, on May 22, hitting most regions of the US and even up into Canada for a date in Toronto on May 29. The trek will culminate on June 12 with the band’s third career appearance at the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival in Manchester, TN. The band will also appear at this year’s Mile High and 10,000 Lakes Festival during their second leg of the tour in July.
“A New Tide” debuted on Billboard’s Top Album chart at #60 this week, marking the highest chart debut in the band’s history. Billboard praised the release, proclaiming that it is “a brilliant 11-song collection of lyrical jewels embellished by colorful and unusual textural arrangements.” The New York Daily News also touted the band, claiming that “Gomez crafts warm, rustic pop songs that recall classic ’60s rock groups like Traffic and the Faces,” while Paste Magazine calls the new album “Catchy, quirky & Gomez’s most experimental.”
