Gossip Kick Off 13 City Tour Of North America On September 24


NEW YORK, July 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Columbia Records — Gossip will kick off a 13 city North American Tour beginning on September 24th in Washington, DC and wrapping up with a performance at Treasure Island Festival in San Francisco, CA on October 14th (see below for full list of dates). Gossip are touring in support of their latest release A Joyful Noise, which was produced by pop genius Brian Higgins (Kylie Minogue, Pet Shop Boys, Girls Aloud). A Joyful Noise was released earlier this year to critical raves, with Associated Press proclaiming it the band’s “finest studio album,” as well as “bombastic, self-assured and a righteou s floor rocker.” Bust Magazine heralded the album and the band for “creating exhilarating, potent dance music,” while Magnet proclaimed the album to have “a sexy confidence that oozes cool.” “Perfect World,” the first single from A Joyful Noise and a track Rolling Stone calls “dance-rock melodrama,” is currently #8 on Billboard’s Hot Dance Club Play chart.

Since releasing A Joyful Noise in May, Gossip have crisscrossed the globe performing to sold-out crowds in New York City as well as major festivals in Germany (Rock am Ring, Rock im Park and Melt Festivals), Japan (FUJI Rock) and Australia (Splendour in the Grass). Gossip will also perform at V Festival in the UK in mid-August in addition to their slot at Treasure Island Festival in October. Led by the dynamic powerhouse vocalist Beth Ditto, Gossip are renowned for their incredibly high energy and amazing live shows. NME described the band as “mind-blowing.” They go on to say “everyone needs to hear this band and dance like there’s no tomorrow.”

Gossip are Beth Ditto (vocals), Brace Paine (guitar, bass, keyboards) and Hannah Billie (drums).
