Divine Fits has confirmed its first full scale U.S. tour in support of its recently released and widely acclaimed debut album, A Thing Called Divine Fits.
Of the album, NPR's Stephen Thompson declares, "Comparisons are fair and inevitable, but the album deserves that highest of compliments: For all its familiar components, it sounds like Divine Fits."
The tour will kick off October 16 in Pawtucket, RI and will wind up with a November 4 show at Los Angeles' Fonda Theater. The band recently made its live debut to uniformly positive reviews. Of the band's debut performance, Austinist raved, "The rapturous applause throughout the entirety of the band's excellent set let them know they were doing more than a few things right. Put simply, things couldn't have gone better." Newly confirmed dates include this year's Moogfest and the end of their Los Angeles residency, tonight at The Echo.
The band will make their late-night television debut this Friday, September 7 on NBC's Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.
The Los Angeles Times called the penultimate show of the residency a "powerful, at times hypnotic gig at the Masonic Temple" that proved "three men with recognizable gifts and a keen sense of song can build mesmerizing musical structures."
