The band said, “It’s wild to think that by the time we get back on the road this year, it will have been over two-and-a- half years since we last toured. We’re so excited to bring new songs to life on stage every night, traveling alongside artists who inspire us. We can’t wait to get out there, doing what we do with an even greater sense of gratitude.”
Initially self-released in 2011, The Head and The Heart’s self-titled breakout debut produced fan favourites including Rivers And Roads, Down In The Valley and Lost In My Mind, and was certified Gold in the US. 2013’s Let’s Be Still and 2016’s Signs Of Light reached Billboard’s Top 10 albums chart. The album also featured the band’s first No 1 Alternative hit with the single All We Ever Knew.
The band’s fourth full-length album, Living Mirage, was released to critical praise in 2019, and provided another Alternative No 1 hit with Missed Connection. The album’s breakout track Honeybee has a total of 153 million streams to date, peaking at a million streams a week.
