O'Brother Announces US Tour with The Sword and Big Business

Related: O'Brother, The Sword, Big Business



Atlanta's O'Brother are thrilled to announce a full North American tour supporting The Sword with Big Business this February and March in support of their sophomore album Disillusion. The run kicks off on February 13th in Austin, TX and continues for six weeks, hitting most major US and Canadian markets. The run will also include select headlining dates for O'Brother along the way in Springfield, MO, Detroit, and Oklahoma City before they wrap up in Jackson, MS on March 26th. After the US run, the band will head overseas in April and May for another month-long run supporting La Dispute in Europe and the UK, which will mark their first European tour in support of Disillusion.



Early last year, the band travelled from Atlanta to Long Island where they laid down the bulk of their sophomore album, Disillusion, with Mike Sapone (Brand New, Public Enemy). They then embarked on a number of tours, including a spring run with Alice in Chains and a performance at last year's Lollapalooza. On August 20th, 2013, O'Brother released Disillusion via Triple Crown Records, the follow up their 2011 debut Garden Window. The record was met with praise from critics and fans alike and propelled them through an incredibly successful national headlining tour - their first ever - and helped them make their Billboard Chart debuts at #18 Heatseekers, #7 Vinyl, and #7 Alternative New Artist.

In true road dog fashion, the band departed just weeks after wrapping their headlining tour for another US tour with fellow Atlantans and Garden Window producers Manchester Orchestra. The tour culminated in a hometown appearance at Manchester Orchestra's annual The Stuffing this November alongside Justin Townes Earle, Grouplove, Kevin Devine, and many more. In December, the band again found themselves in the Northeast to close out 2013 with a short run of dates alongside Torche and Hot Water Music.



Now, they're kicking off 2014 with nearly four months of touring on the horizon. For a full list of confirmed dates with The Sword and all headlining dates, see below. For the most up-to-date information on O'Brother, please visit www.obrothermusic.net.
