The Portland, OR-bred quintet Fruition will head to the Northeast in 2022, announcing on Monday a run of four tour dates set for April.
Following a stint at WinterWonderGrass California in Olympic Valley, CA on April 1st–3rd, the band will trek across the country to Washington, D.C.’s Union Stage with support from Tommy Alexander (4/6). Alexander will stay on the tour as members Jay Cobb (vocals/guitar/harmonica), Kellen Asebroek (vocals/guitar/piano), Mimi Naja (vocals/mandolin/guitar), Jeff Leonard (bass), and Tyler Thompson (drums/banjo) head north to Ardmore, PA’s Ardmore Music Hall on the 7th. The stretch of four shows over as many nights will continue on April 8th at The Bowery Ballroom in New York, NY before finishing up at Allston, MA’s Brighton Music Hall (4/9).
Tickets for all newly-announced shows will go on sale this Friday, February 4th, at 10 a.m. ET. Head to the band’s website for tickets and scroll down for a detailed list of 2022 tour dates.
Monday also brought news of an updated release date for the band’s first-ever live album, Live, Vol. 1. Initially announced back in December, Live, Vol. 1 was set to see a release on January 7th surrounding Fruition’s tour dates in California. After postponing its California shows due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the group also pushed back the album’s release date, now set to arrive on February 25th. Fruition will share the second single, “Above The Line”, this Friday, February 4th, alongside a video edited by Leonard. This follows the release of the first Live, Vol. 1 single, “I Don’t Mind“, from back on December 19th.
“This album is a recording of a show at Visual Arts Collective in Boise, ID on February 10th, 2019,” said drummer and mixing engineer Tyler Thompson. “It was the end of a long tour, so we were definitely firing on all cylinders. Luckily, we didn’t even know the show was being recorded to multitrack, so the energy couldn’t be more honest and rowdy. It was so fun going back through these live tracks that it makes us feel there may be many more live albums in future.”
