Active Child Announce First Headlining Tour
North American Tour Begins With Los Angeles Residency
Special Guests Com Truise and Chad Valley on Select Dates
Active Child, the musical project from choirboy-turned-indie-pop musician Pat Grossi, have announced their first North American headlining tour. Having opened for the likes of School of Seven Bells, White Rabbits, and James Blake, fans will be treated on this tour to the first performances of Active Child as a full band.

Pat is especially looking forward to the tour. “I am incredibly excited about my first headline tour and even more excited about exploring these new songs live,” Pat said. “Hopefully the fans are as eager to hear the music as I am to play it! Plus with Com Truise and Chad Valley on the bill, these shows are guaranteed to be epic. Do not miss this show!”

The performances begin with a special Monday night residency at The Echo in Los Angeles starting August 1 while the tour officially kicks off on August 30 in Tucson, Arizona. Active Child and special guests electronic up-and-comers Com Truise and Chad Valley will be appearing in major cities across the US and Canada, including a sure-to-sell-out September 10 stop at New York City’s Bowery Ballroom. See all current dates below.

Active Child will be touring in support of their debut album You Are All I See which will be released on August 23 via Vagrant Records. The album comes as a follow-up to last year’s critically-acclaimed Curtis Lane EP  which NPR praised as “a young singer and musician already living up to his own promise”.  You Are All I See was produced by Ariel Rechtshaid (Cass McCombs, Glasser, We Are Scientists, Major Lazer) and features 10 brand new tracks, including  “Playing House” – a collaboration with lo-fi r&b singer How To Dress Well – which Pitchfork praised in their premeire saying, “Active Child’s sound now seems positively ahead of its time.”
“Playing House” will be available on iTunes on July 5th and can be heard on Active Child’s website,
