Run For Cover Records label mates Koji and Turnover will be launching a co-headline tour with support from Ivy League and Have Mercy starting June 7 in Altoona, PA. The trek will mark Koji’s first full-band U.S. tour as he has typically performed as a solo artist.
Harrisburg PA-based singer/activist Koji will release his long-awaited new LP Crooked In My Mind tomorrow, April 30, while Virginia Beach, VA-based Turnover’s recently issued Magnolia made an impressive debut, landing at #15 on Billboard’s Heatseekers Chart last week.
A new Koji song is premiering exclusively on The Huffington Post today. In the article, Koji explains how he has partnered with Run For Cover to donate a portion of the proceeds of his album pre-orders to three different non profits:
“My start in music was rooted in community action. With the release of my first full length, Crooked In My Mind, it felt very important to include a social justice component. Run For Cover and I decided to donate a dollar from every pre-order to one of three non-profits who highlight different social justice causes that range from child soldiering in central Africa, to fracking in Pennsylvania, and hunger which is both a local and international issue.”
