Ben Kweller Announces Spring US Tour Dates

By on February 17, 2012


The Noise Company is excited to announce that Ben Kweller has confirmed a run of headlining American tour dates this spring. Beginning on March 20th in Hartford, CT at the historic Wadsworth Atheneum, the treasured singer-songwriter will venture from coast to coast, in support of his new record, Go Fly A Kite. Kweller will perform in major US cities including Boston, New York, Nashville, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. The full list of tour dates is below.
Go Fly A Kite has already been met with many accolades, with Alternative Press awarding it 4 out of 5 stars, noting “[Kweller’s] earnest vocals and easygoing spirit evoke both nostalgia and excitement for what may lie around the next bend in the road – a difficult feat he makes sound effortless.” Rolling Stone called the record a “power-pop whiz kid’s grown-up heartbreak,” while Paste Magazine deemed it “shiny, upbeat and rockin’.” Glide Magazine hailed, “Kweller demonstrates everything he’s learned in his 15-plus-year career as a singer/songwriter, exhibiting his penchant for infectious melodies, rich harmonies and expertly honed musical arrangements.”
Go Fly A Kite is Kweller’s fifth studio album, and a triumphant debut for his Austin-based label, The Noise Company. The album hits hard with the unforgettably melodic and heartwarming fuzzed-out sound that first put him on the map with his debut in 2002. With Go Fly A Kite, Kweller proves that he has evolved yet managed to maintain the deft songwriting sensibility and diversity for which he is known and loved. Immersed in rich harmonies, lush arrangements and bittersweet lyrics, Go Fly A Kite is a celebratory offering of the essential Ben Kweller and serves as a career-defining album with the ability to resonate beyond its time.
