ONEREPUBLIC Adds 22 Additional Dates to Upcoming Summer Tour

Related: OneRepublic

According to Billboard, popular music group OneRepublic have added 27 new dates to their upcoming summer tour to support their most recent album 'Native'.

"We always knew we were going to go out again in the summer, we just didn't know in what capacity or how big or whatever," said frontman Ryan Tedder. "To test the waters, we picked mostly the major markets for the June tour, and it blew out so quickly in so many of the cities that... we were just kind of stupefied.

However, with the large success of their single 'Counting Stars', ticket sales were far greater than originally anticipated for the Colorado-based band. 'Counting Stars', the third single off of 'Native', peaked at No. 2 on the Hot 100 last year, in addition to reaching No. 1 on the Pop Songs and Adult Top 40 charts respectively. The track has been the band's most successful single in six years.

"It's always been a slow-growth process with this band; everything about this band is the tortoise. We're not the hare. We've always been the tortoise. That's what this tour is." Ryan Tedder added. "It's always been a building experience for us -- like I said, we are the tortoise, we're the kid in the back of the classroom that doesn't really talk a lot and by the end of the school year might just end up being the valedictorian".

At this point in their success, this analogy is certainly not a stretch.

Tedder futher teased fans by announcing the band's plans to play new never-before-heard songs on the upcoming tour, consisting of tracks in the works for the next OneRepublic album. However, the group is not scheduled to actually hit the recording studios until this fall while they embark on their European tour. Tedder explained, "The goal is, by the time we get off the road, that we already have half an album in the bag and already know what the singles are going to be, which is very ambitious but I'd prefer to do that rather than go into panic mode in 2015 and not know what the hell we're doing. We've gotten pretty adept at writing on the road."

OneRepublic will be joined by pop-rock acts The Script and American Authors on the upcoming tour. For a full list of dates, see below.
