Gomez announces spring tour

ATO Records is proud to announce that Gomez will be embarking on a string of spring US dates in support of their soon-to-be released sixth studio album A New Tide.  The band will kick off the tour at the South by Southwest Music Festival in Austin, TX, then head up the east coast to play a very special CD release show on March 31 at the Bowery Ballroom in New York City. Appearing on nearly half of the dates will be Josh Ritter, who will be performing with a full band.  Please check the Gomez site for full details including a ticket pre-sale that is currently underway.

Additionally, the band will be returning for their third appearance at the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival this June in Manchester, TN alongside such acts as Beastie Boys, Ben Harper, Wilco, and David Byrne. Tickets for Bonnaroo will go on sale this Saturday, February 7th at 12pm EST.

In celebration of the upcoming release, fans can get a taste of "A New Tide" via their official homepage. A free download of "Airstream Driver" is available now at gomeztheband.com. Set for release on March 31, the new album marks a return to the always-freewheeling British band’s more experimental roots, with songs like "Win Park Slope" and "Airstream Driver" evincing a spirit born of boundless imagination and a longstanding collaborative relationship.
