Houston’s award-winning 8-piece ensemble The Suffers, have announced new dates for their headlining North American Tour (listed below). The band is currently finishing up their upcoming sophomore record and released their newest single “I Think I Love You” in November. For more information, please visit: www.thesuffers.com.
The Suffers’ wrapped a tour with Turkuaz late last year, and co-presented a Hurricane Harvey benefit concert with Newport Folk Presents. The concert, billed as “With A Little Help From Our Friends”, featured The Suffers, Jim James of My Morning Jacket, Shakey Graves, and more, raising $80,000 for hurricane relief efforts!
Established in 2011, The Suffers’ lineup was curated by bassist Adam Castaneda and vocalist/keyboardist Pat Kelly, who brought on trumpet player Jon Durbin, trombonist Michael Razo, guitarist Kevin Bernier, percussionist Jose “Chapy” Luna, and drummer/vocalist Nick Zamora, while frontwoman Kam Franklin topped off the group with soaring vocals.
The last two years have brought the band to new heights, as they played 300+ shows across North America, Europe, Japan and Australia, visited NPR in Washington, DC for a Tiny Desk Concert, made their national television debut on Late Show With David Letterman, and released their highly anticipated self-titled album alongside performances on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah and Jimmy Kimmel Live!
In a short time, the band has progressed from packing Houston venues to accepting invitations for featured performances at Hangout Music Festival, Forecastle Festival, Electric Forest Festival, Afropunk, Pemberton Music Festival, Austin City Limits, Newport Folk Festival, High Water Festival, XPoNential Festival, High Sierra Music Festival, Landmark Music Festival, Voodoo Music + Arts Experience, LouFest, AmericanaFest, UTOPiAfest, SXSW, Free Press Summer Festival, Untapped Festival, CMJ Music Marathon, and more.
