Delta Rae to tour

It's been a wild year for six piece rock band delta Delta Rae. Their debut album, Carry The Fire,came out this past June (iTunes) and to celebrate, Delta Rae performed their single "Bottom Of The River" on The Tonight Show w/Jay Leno. The show liked them so much, they invited them back for round two last night to perform "Fire." In between Leno trips, the band performed on Conan, were featured on NPR's "All Things Considered" and hand selected by Rolling Stone as an "Artist To Watch" for their Women Who Rock campaign. RS flatteringly compared Delta Rae to their favorite band of all time, claiming "If Fleetwood Mac came up in North Carolina, they might resemble Delta Rae." They've been championed by VH1, who selected them as their "You Oughta Know" Artist Of The Month for October, USA Today, who premiered their video for "Dance In The Graveyards," KCRW, Billboard, Forbes and ELLE among others. Live is where Delta Rae truly flourish. The band recently sold out headlining gigs at Bowery Ballroom in NYC, The Independent in San Francisco, The Troubadour in LA and in their hometown of Durham, NC at Carolina Theatre. The band tours relentlessly and will be traversing across the country for the foreseeable future. Do yourself a favor and check out a show.

Delta Rae hit the road with singer/songwriter ZZ Ward last week to officially kick off The Fire & Shine Tour. The combination of these uniquely dynamic artists will create a live musical experience not to be missed. Full List of Tour dates is below.
