Hot off the back of their celebrated live showcases at SXSW and signing to 300 Entertainment in the U.S., Panama will return to the states next month for their first ever U.S. headline tour which includes a date with Chvrches. The highly anticipated release of their 2013 EP, Always, which was re-released in March by 300 Entertainment with new single, "Strange Feeling," saw Panama soar to the top of the Hype Machine charts, accruing almost 2 million Soundcloud plays, BBC Radio 1 airplay and taking out a coveted spot in Triple J's iconic Hottest 100. More recently, Panama's "Always" has provided the soundtrack for a Banana Republic ad campaign and been in rotation on Sirius Alt Nation. Panama will bring an all new live show to their burgeoning U.S. fan base before heading to Europe for a round of festival performances. A full list of tour dates is below.

PRAISE FOR PANAMA:
"'Strange Feeling' is one of those tracks that instantly gets stuck in your head; it's filled with the wonderful collaboration of disco beats, whimsical synths and airy vocals that gets those feet moving... These Australians are definitely a group to watch for the next year..."
"'Strange Feeling' paints a midnight city skyline in neon and dances in its reflection, as ten-ton fingers hit piano keys and a long-outro-sax-solo lets the credits roll. Panama can bet on a warm welcome."
