Windsor, ON – Today, Australian singer-songwriter of Top 40 hit song “Riptide”, Vance Joy, announced his 2016 North American “fire and the flood” tour with his first Ontario stop at Caesars Windsor! Joy performs an ALL-AGES show on the Colosseum stage on Monday, January 25 at 8 pm with special guests Reuben and the Dark.
The ‘fire and the flood’ tour celebrates Vance Joy’s powerful new single of the same name, featured on the recently released special edition of his breakthrough 2014 debut album, ‘dream your life away.’ The companion video to ‘fire and the flood’ is quickly approaching a million views on YouTube and can be seen here: https://youtu.be/zKmWd8DPrEc.
Joy’s breakthrough track and hit single “Riptide” has received international recognition, topping billboard charts in the U.S., Canada, Australia and the U.K. and is en route to sell more than one million units globally. The song also won the U.S. based 2014 International Songwriting Competition, being the first in the award’s 14 year history to earn top marks across the board.
Today’s tour announcement arrives with a new behind-the-scenes video set to ‘fire and the flood’ that gives fans a peek into Vance Joy’s life on the road. The video can be viewed now at Vance Joy’s official YouTube channel https://youtu.be/Zzd9mo8HCq0.
Along for the ride is Calgary’s Reuben and the Dark, a collection of instrumentalists and vocalists who make chilling emotive folk and soul driven by dark, introspective lyrics that explore the duality of misery and joy. The band has emerged organically from Canada's stellar independent scene on the strength of often anthemic compositions that translate the language of emotion into song with haunting clarity. Their debut album 'Funeral Sky' is out now through Arts and Crafts.
