Pop singer, songwriter and musician TODD CAREY has announced he's packing his bags and hitting the road this fall as part of the '8 Bit Heartbeat' U.S. tour alongside Curtis Peoples. CAREY will kick off the tour Saturday, October 19, performing as the sole headliner in Atlanta, Nashville and Raleigh, NC before linking up with Peoples on October 24 for the remainder of the tour. The two will hit up CAREY's current hometown New York City on Monday, October 28 and wrap up in his childhood hometown Chicago, IL on Saturday, November 9.
The '8 Bit Heartbeat' U.S. tour coincides with the release of CAREY's new single "Nintendo," an infectious modern pop gem that recalls carefree days and young love, which will be released in the coming weeks. "Nintendo" also marks the first single off CAREY's forthcoming full-length album Future Throwback, to be released later this year on Blaster Records.
"Part of the reason Future Throwback was such a long time coming, was the necessity that it work live," CAREY shares. "Performing this music is the essence of what I do, and though this album is meticulously modern, every song has been road tested to bring exciting organic energy to a performance."
As announced earlier this summer, CAREY recently signed an exclusive record deal with Blaster Records and joins label-mates Hank Williams Jr., Aaron Lewis, Jared Ashley and Brother Trouble in the Blaster Records family.
"This record ultimately captures the high energy spirit that has built the bond between me and my amazing fans," says CAREY. "It's really exciting to have Blaster Records recognize that connection and become such a great partner. The team we have built together feels like home. I'm living my dream and am so grateful for this next chapter."
CAREY--a Studio Guitar major from the University of Southern California--taught guitar lessons after graduation to pay the bills while continuing to hone his songwriting, musicianship, and his eclectic pop/beat-driven sound. With the independent release of his 2010 EP After The Morning After, CAREY reached a new career milestone when the EP cracked the Top 40 on iTunes chart upon release. Now with the support of Blaster Records, CAREY is poised to share his talents on an even larger stage.
