ANNOUNCE U.S & CANADA HEADLINING DATES
WEST COAST TOUR WITH TRAIL OF DEAD!
NEW ALBUM “COLOUR TRIP” OUT NOW!
“Colour Trip is one of my favorites of 2011”-Brooklyn Vegan
Austin, TX trio Ringo Deathstarr has announced a U.S. and Canadian headlining tour for this summer as well as a West Coast stint supporting Trail Of Dead. The band who recently released their full-length record Colour Trip (Sonic Unyon/AC30) in March has just returned from a tour of Japan which was preceded by a European run. However the band have not toured the U.S. since the album’s release, though they did play a whopping twelve plus shows at SXSW which was championed by such outlets as NPR who included the band in their SXSW preview as a band they can’t wait to see and Wired Magazine who proclaimed Ringo a “Must Hear Band.” The band will be doing headlining dates from June 25th in Minneapolis and will hit the East Coast and parts of Canada routing back to Texas for mid July.
On the press front, the band is also drawing rave reviews across the board (a sampling of quotes follow).

Chrome Waves – “Loud, fuzzy and fun,”
CMJ on Colour Trip- “an interesting indie-pop/lo-fi contrast that’s addressed in every distortion-soaked, echoing track.”
The Austinist -“Ringo Deathstarr’s debut LP is a well-made, effects-laden enfilade of melody and noise.”
My Old Kentucky Blog – “At heart, Ringo Deathstarr is a tremendous pop band, perhaps ready to rival Belle and Sebastien.”
Wired– “The band sounds like it leaped screaming out of My Bloody Valentine’s blown amps” .
Street Boners– “Is it possible to wear out your YouTube player to the point that it starts skipping, because that’s how many times I’ve spun this video for “So High.”
NME– “It’s a shame we do not live in a world in which Ringo Deathstarr is the name of Liam Gallagher’s new band.”
