Update 2/23/21: Kaleo are once again pushing their North American tour. At present, their Red Rocks appearance in Morrison, Colorado remains on for July 19 this year, but the remainder of their dates have been pushed to late winter and spring of 2022. See the stops and pertinent info listed at the bottom of this post. Meanwhile, the band's new album is said to released in "the coming months," with an announcement expected soon.
Update: Kaleo have now pushed their "Fight or Flight" tour to 2021. The band announced their rescheduled dates, though they had to cancel some stops as well. “The health of our fans, our crew and communities around the world remains our number one priority,” shares the band. “We have made the decision to move our Fight or Flight Tour to 2021 with all of that in mind. We are excited to celebrate the power of live music together again when the time is right.” Visit the band's website for ticketing details and see an updated graphic concerning the dates below.
Meanwhile, the band's Surface Sounds album, initially due June 5, is being held for release at a later time. “We know you have waited a long time for new Kaleo music and want to thank you for your continued support and patience,” says singer J.J. Julius Son. “We are still so excited to share this album with you when it is ready.”
Kaleo will be getting a solid impression of North America in 2020, announcing two legs of tour dates that will start in the summer and carry over into the fall.
The trek will be dubbed the "Fight or Flight" tour, with singer J.J. Julius Son stating, “‘Fight or flight’ speaks to our instinctual response to choices: to stay and fight or to flee. Throughout the process of making this new album while touring and recording abroad, learning new languages and incorporating sounds from the varying cities I visited, what was most remarkable was seeing first-hand how we are more alike than we are different. This idea to stay, stand our ground and fight for what we believe in keeps resurfacing, and I think as we finish this next record and begin the next chapter, we wanted the fans to know we’re not going anywhere. We’re here with them.”
Joining Kaleo on tour will be special guests Matt Maeson, three-piece outfit Belle Mt. and upstarts Wilder Woods. The first leg of the run kicks off July 1 in Portland, Oregon, continuing through Aug. 12 finale in Miami. After a few weeks off, the band will hit the road again with a second leg starting Sept. 9 in Albany, New York and continuing through the Oct. 16 finale in San Francisco. All dates are listed below.
Before setting out on their "Fight or Flight" tour, Kaleo will perform on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert tonight (Feb. 27) on CBS as well as perform a short series of dates in small, intimate settings, including three sold out shows: May 27 at Brighton Music Hall in Allston, Mass. and two nights at Gramercy Theatre in New York, June 1-2. The band will also play a radio festival in Camden, N.J. on May 30.
Kaleo have been working on the follow-up to their 2016 debut A/B and recently released a pair of new songs -- "I Want More" and "Break My Baby." Stay tuned for news on their forthcoming album.
