COURAGE MY LOVE ANNOUNCE THE BECOMING TOUR (USA + CANADA) Band makes New York City debut at CMJ Music Marathon October 16, 2013.
Wednesday, October 9, 2013 - For immediate release
Homeskool Prom Records / Warner Music Canada recording artist Courage My Love are thrilled to announce The Becoming Tour (America and Canada). The 22-date tour kicks off in their hometown of Kitchener, Ontario on November 17/2013 and wraps up in Lansing, Michigan on December 20/2013. The US leg will be the band's first ever tour of the United States since signing with the FATA Booking Agency in the U.S. Prior to the tour, the band will make their official US debut in New York City on October 16/2013 to perform at CIMA's Canadian Blast Showcase at the influential CMJ Music Marathon Festival in front of fans, music industry professionals, college radio tastemakers, bloggers and press from across the country.
On June 11, 2013 Courage My Love released their latest EP, Becoming. Recorded in Toronto with producer Chris Perry, Becoming’s 8 songs showcase the band’s rip-roaring rock. In July the band graced the cover of Canadian Musician Magazine as “the new breed of Canadian recording artist.”
The Kitchener, Ontario-based Courage My Love is led by singer/guitarist Mercedes Arn-Horn and her twin sister Phoenix (drums/vocals). The group is rounded out by bassist Brandon Lockwood. To mark the recording of the new EP, Courage My Love launched the online episodic video series “The (Un) Real Lives of Courage My Love” which is posted on the band’s Youtube page www.youtube.com/ilovecouragemylove . The series is a fictitious look at the creation of Becoming.
Courage My Love have cut their teeth and built their audience with fiery live performances. They have torn up the stages of a number of key festivals like the Vans Warped Tour, NXNE and Canadian Music Week while playing alongside the likes of Paramore, Tokyo Police Club, The Pretty Reckless and A Day To Remember. Alternative Press Magazine pegged Courage My Love as one of the '100 Bands You Need To Know'. The group’s debut EP, For Now, was released in Canada in the Fall of 2011 and in Japan in the Summer of 2012. The Japanese release was followed up by a live showcase in the land of the Rising Sun six months later.
The band have also produced a number of popular broadcast and viral videos (over 3.9 million views on the band’s youtube channel) as well as the podcast series, “Homeskool Detention,” that can be heard on their website, www.ilovecouragemylove.com.
