Wednesday, September 9, 2015
(Halifax, NS) – Australian singer-songwriter Vance Joy has announced his return to North America in 2016 with the ‘fire and the flood’ tour. This marks the first headline run for Vance Joy since his 2015 global main support slot for Taylor Swift. The tour stops at the Rebecca Cohn Auditorium in Halifax on Sunday, Feb. 7 and Monday, Feb. 8. Special guest is Reuben and the Dark.
The ‘fire and the flood’ tour celebrates Vance Joy’s powerful new single of the same name, featured on the recently released special edition of his breakthrough 2014 debut album, ‘dream your life away.’ The companion video to ‘fire and the flood’ is quickly approaching a million views on YouTube and can be seen here: https://youtu.be/zKmWd8DPrEc.
In Canada, Vance Joy’s breakout debut single ‘Riptide’ was a multi-format smash at Canadian radio on its way to achieving triple-Platinum certification. Debut album ‘dream your life away’ has gone on to earn Gold certification, as has second single ‘Mess is Mine.’ The new single ‘fire and the flood’ is already a Top 10 hit on both the Canadian Modern Rock and the Canadian Alternative charts.
Today’s tour announcement arrives with a new behind-the-scenes video set to ‘fire and the flood’ that gives fans a peak into Vance Joy’s life on the road. The video can be viewed now at Vance Joy’s official YouTube channel https://youtu.be/Zzd9mo8HCq0
Along for the ride is Calgary’s Reuben and the Dark. Reuben and the Dark is a collection of instrumentalists and vocalists who make chilling emotive folk and soul driven by dark, introspective lyrics that explore the duality of misery and joy. Boasting a rare chemistry between all members across western Canada, Reuben and the Dark has emerged organically from Canada’s stellar independent scene on the strength of often anthemic compositions that translate the language of emotion into song with haunting clarity. Their debut album ‘Funeral Sky’ is out now through Arts and Crafts.
