Portugal’s psych-pop group The Gift is releasing Explode, their sixth studio album “Explode”, through their own label La Folie on September 27th, and now they’d like to share the news of their first North American tour in support of the album. The band came over in June for shows in New York City and Toronto, and now they’ll be bringing their amazing live show to Los Angeles, Chicago, NYC, Boston and Toronto.
The band manages themselves, finances their own recordings, and produces some of the most visually-stunning live shows around. They’ve also shared the stage with some of the world’s biggest artists, including The Flaming Lips and Arcade Fire, all while topping charts worldwide.
The Gift may be a new name to some here in the U.S., but this isn’t an overnight success story. The band has a rich history- for seventeen years, they’ve been totally “Do It Yourself”, having built a rapid fan base in their native country and all over Europe without the aid of a major label, booking agent, or management company.
