British rock band The Boxer Rebellion will be coming over to North America this fall for a month-long tour in promotion of their recently released Ghost Alive album. Details of the 14-date fall run were revealed on Monday morning via the band’s social media outlets, with the tour scheduled to begin on Sept. 26 in San Diego and coming to an end just a few weeks later with a final stop at New York City’s Bowery Ballroom on Oct. 13. Tickets for select shows will be going on sale starting this Friday (April 20) and can be found by clicking here.
The upcoming tour will see the veteran rock outfit playing to mostly major cities across the west and east coasts of the U.S. and Canada, as the band had previously toured heavily throughout much of middle America last year. Notable stops on the fall run include schedule shows at Denver’s Bluebird Theatre on Oct. 3, and New York City’s Rough Trade record store/concert venue on Oct. 12.
The Boxer Rebellion, who initially formed in London back in the early 2000s, have spent much of this year's winter months on tour across Europe. Fans should expect to hear plenty of songs off of Ghost Alive, which arrived just a few weeks ago on March 23. One of those songs, “Love Yourself,” was written to focus on the importance of mental health, as singer Nathan Nicholson explained last fall.
“In this age of connectivity, for all its celebration and wonderment, it seems impossible to not be just as affected by the suffering of others,” Nicholson told British music outlet NME in a lengthy statement upon the release of “Love Yourself.” “My intention when I wrote the song was to try and deliver hope in the face of hopelessness, albeit during a moment of deep self-reflection.”
The music video for “Love Yourself” can be watched and heard in full above.
