Elektra recording group Finish Ticket has announced the release of their new EP, “WHEN NIGHT BECOMES DAY,” available digitally everywhere September 4th. Recorded and produced in the San Francisco Bay Area and mixed by the legendary Mark Needham (The Killers, Imagine Dragons), “WHEN NIGHT BECOMES DAY” is currently streaming here http://soundcloud.com/finishticket/sets/finish-ticket-when-night-becomes-day-ep/s-xzgkZ. “WHEN NIGHT BECOMES DAY” premiered on Friday via Baeble, who said of the band, “With its arena ready hooks and wall of sound guitars…Finish Ticket represent the best of what contemporary pop-rock can be.”  A limited physical version of the EP will be sold exclusively at live shows (see attached itinerary) and through the band’s website.


Finish Ticket will celebrate “WHEN NIGHT BECOMES DAY” by joining Fueled By Ramen recording group twenty one pilots on their upcoming sold out “Blurryface Tour.” The trek – which also features support from Echosmith – gets underway September 8th and 9th Washington, DC’s Echostage and then travels through a Halloween finale at St. Louis, MO’s Chaifetz Arena on October 31st.  On their way across the country to join the tour, Finish Ticket will wrap up their summer with a number of headline dates, festivals and college performances, highlighted by a set at Chicago, IL’s Chicago Fashion and Music Fest on August 29th.


Finish Ticket will follow the “Blurryface Tour” with a hometown show on November 5th at San Francisco’s Great American Music Hall.  Additional shows will be announced soon.  For complete details and ticket information, please visit www.finishticket.com/#tour.


Hailed by Paste as “The Best of What’s Next,” Finish Ticket have earned accolades and a loyal fan following for their spirited brand of pop, rock, and contemporary indie. Founded by fraternal twins Brendan and Michael Hoye alongside childhood friend AlexDiDonato, the Bay Area-based band truly came together with the addition of a second set of brothers, Gabe and Nick Stein. Finish Ticket have already cultivated a rabid fanbase in the Bay Area by playing with the likes of Ed Sheeran and headlining venues such as at The Fillmore.  Produced by Rilo Kiley’s Pierre de Reeder (Vampire Weekend, She & Him, Ben Gibbard), their debut album, “TEARS YOU APART,” was released independently in 2010 and caught the ear of Elektra who re-released the album in 2013.
