Communion Announces June 2014 Club Nights
Summer is almost here and so are Communion's June club nights! Communion-signed Catfish and the Bottlemen kicks off the series and will headline all shows excepting Nashville; special guests will be announced soon. As always, club nights will showcase local musicians in each city. Presale tickets are available now at http://www.communionmusic.com. Student and affiliated radio patron discounts available. See below for tour details.
Beloved in Europe as purveyors of finely crafted indie-rock hooks, Communion welcomes Catfish and the Bottlemen stateside. The Welsh foursome has toured extensively throughout the U.K. and Communion is excited to play host to their breakout U.S. tour. Watch the video for the band's latest single "Kathleen" http://bit.ly/1mweWUt, also available now on iTunes: http://bit.ly/1qb26wA.
Communion will continue its partnership with Global Citizen, an innovative online platform and mobile application run by The Global Poverty Project. To show its commitment to affecting change on a local, grassroots level, Communion provides ten percent of the tickets to each of its nine monthly club nights to Global Citizen to reward users.
The Communion club night series brings artists to nine cities across the country, returning each month with a unique lineup showcasing emerging and established talent alongside local bands in each city. The U.S. nights are modeled on the legendary Communion night in Notting Hill, London founded in 2006 by Ben Lovett, Kevin Jones and Ian Grimble. Following the underground success achieved in London, the club night moved first to Brighton and then gradually to 15 cities in the U.K. and U.S. with a further outpost in Melbourne, Australia. Communion Records, Communion Presents and, most recently, Communion Publishing emerged from bonds formed at these early club nights.
Artists to emerge from the Communion fold include Michael Kiwanuka, Daughter, Gotye and Ben Howard.
