New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Today, with the announcement of over a dozen new US tour dates, Marco Benevento releases a brand new music video for Let It Slide standout "Send It On A Rocket." Filled with kaleidoscopic displays of dancing Marcos, giant flowers, and swirling peacocks (of which Benevento actually owns four), the video is Benevento's first collaboration with award-winning animator and director Qieer Wang (Adult Swim, NPR).

As one of the singles preceding Marco Benevento's just-released album Let It Slide, he previously introduced "Send It On A Rocket" with a thank you to Richard Swift. The new LP has received praise from FLOOD, Relix, High Times, AllMusic, and KCRW, who call it "one of Benevento's most compelling albums to date." Listen here.

Next week, Benevento and his rousing band of bass extraordinaire Karina Rykman and drummer David Butler kick off a tour now spanning nearly fifty dates and four months following this morning's additions across Colorado and the Southern US. All performances are listed below, with the 13 new, bolded dates on-sale HERE this Friday, October 4th, at 10am local time.

Newly Announced Dates in BOLD
Praise for Let It Slide
"Let It Slide makes [Benevento] harder to ignore in the indie world than ever...if you're a psychedelic pop fan and you still haven't given his music a good listen, let this album change that."- BrooklynVegan
"A message that resonates throughout the entirety of Let It Slide: that being yourself will lead to feeling fine and free."- FLOOD
"Marco Benevento has long been known as a piano and keys savant...but lately, he's been leaning into pop sensibilities, building punchy, catchy songs that value a good hook and brevity. And on Let It Slide, Benevento dives even deeper into that"- High Times
"Free-wheeling innovations makes for one of Benevento's most compelling albums to date."- KCRW
"Bassline-Fueled, Lush, Infectious"- Relix
"Benevento has a knack for balancing memorable chorus hooks with a tactile, deeply textured, and analog-brand of instrumentation."- AllMusic, Editor's Choice
"Upending expectations is kind of his thing"- WNYC
