New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
Badflower announced today that they will be embarking on their 28-city headline tour this fall beginning September
28 through November 2 in support of their critically-acclaimed debut album OK, I'M SICK. Spotify fan first presale and VIP presale available today with general on-sale beginning August 2 at 10am local time at BadflowerMusic.com. Full routing below.
"We are SO excited for our first official US headline tour supporting our debut album. Every night will be a performance you will never forget. For better or for worse. 😵" says lead singer Josh Katz.
For each ticket sold, $1 per ticket will be donated to Sea Shepherd Conservation Society (SSCS),an international non-profit, marine wildlife conservation organization. Their mission is to end the destruction of habitat and slaughter of wildlife in the world's oceans in order to conserve and protect ecosystems and species.
On the band's decision to work with Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, Katz explains, "I'm a vegan. Animal rights are very important to me, but the bigger picture is that all life has value and my goal is to try to get, not just our fanbase, but the world, to think in those terms. We speak to many issues on the album but this one speaks to my heart and that's why we decided to incorporate a charitable donation into this tour. Sea Shepherd is the ideal choice for making changes on a global scale."
