Icelandic rock band KALEO is preparing for its third studio album, Fight or Flight, with an accompanying 2020 tour to support the release. Joining the group on the road will be Matt Maeson, Belle Mt., and Wilder Woods.
The Fight or Flight Tour kicks off in July and will visit several major U.S. cities, including Portland (Tickets), Seattle (Tickets), Kansas City (Tickets), Milwaukee (Tickets), Albany (Tickets), New York (Tickets), Pittsburgh (Tickets), Columbus (Tickets), Austin (Tickets), Los Angeles (Tickets), and San Francisco (Tickets). The group will also be returning to Red Rocks (Tickets).
Tickets for the Fight or Flight Tour go on sale on Friday, March 6 with various presales opening up on March 5. Every order of two or more tickets purchased online for select stops will include one physical or digital copy of their upcoming album.
The tour and album reflect the group touring around the world, learning new languages, and finding that we have two instinctual choices in life: to stay and fight for what we believe or to leave. Bandmate and frontman JJ Julius Son found that as people we have more commonalities than not and the theme will be incorporated into new music.
“Fight or Flight speaks to our instinctual response to choices: to stay and fight or to flee,” lead vocalist and guitarist JJ Julius Son. “Throughout the process of making this new album while touring and recording abroad, learning new languages and incorporating sounds from the varying cities I visited, what was most remarkable was seeing first-hand how we are more alike than we are different. This idea to stay, stand our ground and fight for what we believe in keeps resurfacing, and I think as we finish this next record and begin the next chapter, we wanted the fans to know we’re not going anywhere. We’re here with them.”
Heading into 2020, KALEO released two singles in "I Want More" and "Break My Baby." The former has reached the No. 20 position on Adult Alternative Songs chart.
