Børns will continue his global concert campaign with a run of 21 shows with Twin Shadow scheduled to take place this fall. The alt-rock guitarist and singer has spent much of his year on the road, and will now trek across the U.S. and Canada for what will most likely be his final shows of 2018. The tour with both artists is scheduled to begin on Sept. 17 in Orlando, about a month following the end of Børns' European/U.K. tour throughout the spring and summer months. Announced on Monday afternoon, the fall tour includes scheduled shows at notable venues such as New York City’s Radio City Music Hall (Sept. 17) and Los Angeles’ Greek Theatre (Oct. 24) to name a few.
Following what was an impressive debut album cycle for the now 26-year-old Garrett Borns, the rock singer’s 2018 sophomore effort, Blue Madonna, has continued to propel him and his music into the mainstream arena. Upon its release back in early January, Blue Madonna has since cracked the top 50 on the “Billboard 200” album sales chart in the U.S., and even featured a collaborative track with Lana Del Rey on the song, “God Save Our Young Blood.” More recently Børns was in the California desert to perform and both weekends of Coachella.
“I had a busted guitar as a kid that didn't really make any pleasant sounds, but I loved the feel of it. It was more of a prop than an instrument,” Børns told AXS in an interview last fall. “It wasn't until I graduated high school that I started using it for musical purposes, but I discovered the showy aspect is just as important.”
Similar to Børns, Twin Shadow a.k.a. George Lewis Jr., also released a new album just this past Friday. Titled Caer, the 13-track album features cameos from Rainford (Rainey Qualley) and HAIM, and is now up on all major streaming platforms. Lewis had made headlines for all the wrong reasons back in 2015 when the band's tour bus was involved in a serious accident just outside of Denver. The crash forced Lewis to undergo reconstructive hand surgery, but thankfully left the guitarist and singer with no life-threatening injuries. The tour was able to start back up again later on in the year.
