Typhoon Announces Nationwide US Tour & New Music Video For “Young Fathers”

By on December 14, 2013


Typhoon will spend much of early 2014 on the road in support of their critically-acclaimed new album White Lighter, following up on their sold out Fall tour across North America. Kicking things off in January with a handful of dates around the Pacific Northwest, the 11-piece band (featuring strings, horns and two drummers – in addition to the more typical rock lineup) will spend the ensuing months headlining a nationwide tour that spans both coasts, with a stop along the way at SXSW. The band will showcase their “mercurial ability to range moments from quiet, introspective folk/pop songs into an all-out aural assault with distorted guitars, pounding drums, and powerful howls” at New York’s Webster Hall, Los Angeles’ El Rey Theatre, Washington DC’s 9:30 Club and Chicago’s Metro, among others.


MtvU recently premiered the new video for acclaimed single “Young Fathers,” declaring “‘Young Fathers’ takes us on a woodsy guest complete with a spirit animal guide.” Similarly, SPIN asserts the song is “a mind-boggling chunk of orchestral pop…this latest epic dives into the group’s enormous range.”

White Lighter has received overwhelming praise since its release earlier this year, debuting at #2 on the Top New Artists Chart and #101 on Billboard’s Top 200. Recently, the band appeared on NPR’s Tiny Desk as well as World Cafe, and was included in PASTE’s Top 50 Albums of 2013 list.
