Coleman Hell is still working on his debut album, but following the alternative radio success of his single "2 Heads," the genre-crossing Ontario electronic pop artist has announced plans to launch an extensive fall tour in North America.
The tour schedule runs from this month all the way until November, and it includes a generous assortment of U.S. and Canadian shows. It's clear that the vocalist's stock is on the rise; a previously announced gig at the Biltmore Cabaret in Vancouver has already sold out, and another gig in the city has now been added.
Many of the dates are with Robert Delong. Check out the schedule below and the lyric video for "2 Heads" below that.
"I feel like recently I've put it all together and found my real voice," Hell said in a statement. "What I'm aspiring to, I hope is a little different. We all play instruments, but in my live show, for example, it's a lot more modern set-up, including a DJ. The key is the music has to come from great songs. I always want to write, good, honest songs — but deliver them in an unconventional way."
The artist is currently prepping his debut album. It will be out on 604 Records in Canada on through Columbia Records elsewhere.
