HANDSOME GHOST Touring with FLOR This Winter Plus ESCAPE ROUTES Sessions Debut LP Out 1/26!

Massachusetts Indie-Pop band Handsome Ghost is excited to hit the road again this winter, supporting flor on a North American tour. The month-long run will hit 23 cities across the region, including landmark venues such as 7th Street Entry in Minneapolis, The Mercury Lounge in NYC, and The Troubadour in Los Angeles, among others. News of the tour comes on the heels of Handsome Ghost announcing its debut studio full-length album - Welcome Back - which is due out January 26th via New York label Photo Finish Records.

The duo of singer/songwriter Timothy Noyes and multi-instrumentalist/producer Eddie Byun who record under the Handsome Ghost moniker have been slowly releasing tracks from Welcome Back, including songs like "beauty/bends:" and "Better Off," which premiered on NYLON and Billboard respectively. On November 10th Handsome Ghost released another new track titled "Fool," a song with an aural aesthetic that harkens back to Noyes' time spent moonlighting as a solo musician with an acoustic guitar, seeking closure from a past relationship. The band further explores the introspective theme found on "Fool" - as well as the rest of Welcome Back - with a new single-shot video, directed by Tim's brother Nick Noyes.

Noyes and Byun are also in the midst of curating a series of live sessions directed by Nick, dubbed Escape Routes. The Stripped Sessions feature solo acoustic performances from Noyes, focusing on the song-writing and lyrics of select tracks found on Welcome Back, while the Sudden Sessions feature stripped down versions of the full-band improvising with different instruments in various locations. The band plans to roll these out every other week leading up to the album's release and beyond - you can check out the Stripped Session and Sudden Session for "Honest Mistake" HERE and HERE, and the Stripped Session for "Fool" HERE, which was released today exclusively via the band's YouTube channel.

Handsome Ghost's North American tour with flor is on sale now and runs from February 2nd through March 3rd, hitting most major markets - see below for full dates. Previously, the band has spent time on the road with the likes of MisterWives, Marian Hill, BØRNS, X Ambassadors, K. Flay, and Grizfolk, and just earlier this year, made debut appearances at The Billboard Hot 100 Festival and Firefly. The band's debut studio full-length Welcome Back is due out on January 26th, and you can stream or purchase "Fool" today via all DSPs. Please be sure to stay tuned to for all up-to-date information.
