U.K. Pop Music Phenomenon Aqualung to Play Select Dates on Upcoming Pete Yorn Tour
New Aqualung Album, 'Memory Man,' Available Tuesday, March 6
Aqualung, the ongoing musical project of British prodigy Matt Hales, will perform as the opening act on select dates, from February 6 through March 9, on labelmate Pete Yorn's upcoming "The Morning, Day, and Night Tour" (see Aqualung/Pete Yorn tour dates following).
The eagerly awaited new Aqualung album, Memory Man, will be available in stores and online, on Tuesday, March 6.
Memory Man is the eagerly-awaited successor to Aqualung's critically-acclaimed U.S. debut, 2005's Strange and Beautiful collection, a #1 Billboard Heatseekers album which introduced American audiences to the music of Matt Hales with hits like the Triple A chart-topper "Brighter Than Sunshine" and "Strange & Beautiful (I'll Put A Spell On You)." Strange and Beautiful has gone on to sell more than 250,000 copies in the U.S.
Memory Man is the artist's first new set of songs since being named a VH1 "You Oughta Know" artist in late 2005. Aqualung headlined a VH1-presented North American concert tour that year, returning to the states in early 2006 for a series of concerts with David Gray. In addition to performing at Austin City Limits 2005 and Lollapalooza 2006, Aqualung has toured with Jason Mraz, Cary Brothers, Dido, and The Fray.
