J. Roddy Walston & The Business Announce Spring Tour with Foals and Cage The Elephant

“J. Roddy Walston and the Business … comes off like a more polished White Stripes or an edgier My Morning Jacket” – Time Out New York

 

Best known for their live shows, we are thrilled to announce J. Roddy Walston & The Business’s upcoming string of tour dates, including a spring run with Foals and Cage the Elephant set to begin April 21st.

 

Melting all manner of stereotypes into an as-yet-unnamed breed of New American, each of J. Roddy Walston & The Business’s live performances finds hipsters hugging Teamsters and sweating till it hurts, and art-school cynics and metalheads screaming out every lyric in some gorgeously desperate attempt to connect. There seems to be a competition between the band and the crowd as to who will give more each night.

 

In addition to their epic performances, the band’s relentless rock single “Heavy Bells” has been charting at alternative radio for five months with a peak position of #12 this week. It has also spent five consecutive months on Billboard’s Heatseekers chart and is not letting up any time soon. For a peek into their recording habits, out this previously unreleased footage of the band in producer/engineer Mark Neill (The Black Keys) own Soil of the South Studios
