All Bets Are On For Indie Music Fans As Universal Republic Newcomers Your Vegas Makes Live Trek Across US With The Bravery

LOS ANGELES (Top40 Charts/ Universal Republic Records) - New Universal Republic band Your Vegas, whose sweeping pop EP is garnering raves and turning heads of iTunes fans (it opened up on the iTunes rock chart at a stunning No 27), are making their way through several towns and cities on their much anticipated US tour, which kicked off on January 25 in Seattle Washington. The much buzzed about run is '08's kickoff alt-romp, with Your Vegas joining New York's new-wavey quintet the Bravery and British powerpoppers Switches on the multiple city trek before venturing off for a handful of solo shows in March.

Hailing from Leeds, UK, the resilient band hit their epic stride by selling everything and squatting smack down in Hells Kitchen, NYC, signing with Universal Republic last year, and drawing comparisons to breakthrough bands such as Coldplay, The Killers, and others. "Their sound is so polished, carefully constructed and could be mistaken for thinking it was U2 up on the stage", crowed one review. Pop culture tastemakers have also taken notice, with Your Vegas putting in a rousing TV performance from the Sundance Film Festival and picking up a key endorsement from Playboy magazine as one of the Top 10 Bands to Watch in 2008. Upcoming touts by indie-chroniclers Alternative Press, Music Connection, and are also in the works.

Propelled by calling card signature songs on the 3-track EP like the soaring "It Makes My Heart Break," and the plaintive pulse of "Troubled Times," Your Vegas has already carved out that rarest of profiles: Anthem-driven rockers re-setting the indie music clock. Their debut CD, A Town And Two Cities is in stores April 22nd.
