CURRENT TOUR WITH SWITCHFOOT RUNNING THROUGH MAY

THE ROCKET SUMMER has just announced a U.S. headlining tour in support of the new full-length album LIFE WILL WRITE THE WORDS, out Tuesday, June 5 on indie label Aviate Records. The first leg will kick off Thursday, May 31 in Seattle, WA with The Scene Aesthetic and special guests States; additional dates will be added soon.

Tickets for the shows–including a special album release performance on June 5 at The Roxy in Los Angeles–will go on sale this Monday, April 30 at 10am local time. Information on purchasing tickets including pre-orders and bundle ticket packages will be available at www.therocketsummer.com. Tickets for the current tour with Switchfoot running through May are also available via the band’s website.

Earlier this month, multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter and producer BRYCE AVARY, known as THE ROCKET SUMMER, announced he will put out his first independent full-length album via his own Aviate Records. Following two successful albums on Island/DefJam–2007’s Do You Feel and 2010’s Of Men And Angels–AVARY choose to return to his self-releasing, self-producing roots with LIFE WILL WRITE THE WORDS, available worldwide Tuesday, June 5.

“This is a new season and in a way feels almost like a rebirth for TRS; it’s time to tear down the corporate barrier between my music and Rocket Summer fans,” proclaims AVARY. “Starting my own label, Aviate Records, is the perfect outlet for releasing music to fans whenever and however I want.”

As with previous albums from THE ROCKET SUMMER, AVARY wrote and performed every note on LIFE WILL WRITE THE WORDS. Between sellout acoustic tour dates in the USA and numerous headlining and festival touring abroad, 2011 saw AVARY experimenting with numerous new sounds in the studio, sounds including mandolin, a banjo, some trashcans and even a typewriter. His songwriting likewise stretched to a broader scope, examining the human existence with the advantage of both a strikingly personal eye experience and the experiential outlook of writers many years older. The result is a 12-track multi-dimensional collection that further establishes AVARY as a modern-day Renaissance man with the engaging outlook embodied in the album’s title LIFE WILL WRITE THE WORDS.

THE ROCKET SUMMER has sold over 250,000 albums and over 500,000 singles in the U.S. alone. The last record, Of Men And Angels, debuted #1 on the iTunes Albums chart, #38 on the Billboard Top 200 and #4 on the Billboard Top Rock albums charts. This surpassed its predecessor, Do You Feel, which came in at #44 on the Billboard Top 200 and #16 on Rock Albums.
