Now, Now Every Children are thrilled to be hitting the road this fall and winter. Dates kick off Mid October in the US and wrap up at the end of 2009 with a trip across the Atlantic to back up Paramore (whom have featured NNEC on their site as a Band of The Month) on their jaunt through the UK. The Minneapolis based band is out in support of their acclaimed full-length debut Cars, released this past July on Afternoon Records.
Now, Now Every Children are especially excited to be getting back in the van after being forced to cut their last tour of the US short due to insurmountable car troubles. Not to mention the fact that their first attempt at playing the UK was foiled by a snafu with customs as they tried to leave Calais, France for England earlier this spring. The upcoming dates will be a great way to see the fans they missed before and also make some new ones along the way.
Since the release of Cars, Now, Now Every Children have been steadily gaining praise for their unique brand of lo-fi indie pop. In a recent profile Interview Magazine described their debut as "a surprisingly rocking affair-epic pop throwdowns full of shoegazery guitars, anthemic melodies, and just the slightest, teeniest hint of emo melancholia. Though they might sound twee on paper, the band is a formidable live act, particularly when it comes to Dalager's full-throttle guitar playing."
Named a Spin.com "Must-Hear Band" at this year's Bamboozle, they lived up to the recognition and impressed crowds at the festival, proving to be "elevating in the bleak afternoon haze." Meanwhile The Fader, NPR, Yahoo Music, and Chromewaves have all featured the group and their excellent single "Everyone You Know."
