The Gift Announce North American Tour

On the eve of the release of their sixth studio album Explode, The Gift has unveiled news of their first North American tour in support of the album, slated to come out on September 27.

The band did a trial run for the tour, set to start October 7 in Los Angeles, back in June with gigs in NYC and Toronto.  The latest road trek will hit the aforementioned cities as well as Boston and Chicago.

While the band may be new to U.S. ears, but they’ve been toiling away for nearly two decades, building a rabid fan base in their native Portugal and throughout Europe with an absolute DIY ethic, managing themselves, financing their own albums and booking and promoting their own tours. To get a glimpse of the group’s live act, view the video for “My Sun” HERE.

The Gift has also lived up to their name by sharing a few tracks from Explode, the upbeat pop rocker, “The Race Is Long” and the big, brassy ballad “Made For You.” Download them HERE and HERE.
