LOS ANGELES, CA – JUNE 4, 2013 – Australia’s San Cisco today announced they will release their debut full-length album on July 16th via RCA Records. The 13-track offering is the follow up to their Awkward EP, which was released this past March. The album’s jubilant first single “Fred Astaire” is available to listen to now HERE and will impact radio later this month.

Today San Cisco also announced an extensive U.S. headlining tour. The run of dates will kick off on July 15th in Boston, MA at Brighton Music Hall and will wrap up on August 13th at The Echoplex in Los Angeles, CA. The band will also perform at Chicago’s Lollapalooza in August. See below for a complete list of dates.

Ranging from ages 18-20, the four-piece (Jordi Davieson: lead vocals and guitar, Josh Biondillo: guitar, keyboards, vocals, Nick Gardner: bass, and Scarlett Stevens: drums, vocals) worked on finessing their sound throughout 2011, playing crowd-wowing sets at Big Day Out, Big Sound, Laneway and Fuse Festival. Influential Aussie radio station Triple J gave them the 2011 award for Best New Music and their song “Awkward” was voted into the Top 10 of Triple J’s Hottest 100. To date “Awkward” has received over four million plays on YouTube. The band recently performed a rousing cover of Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky” for Triple J’s ‘Like A Version” cover series. In just a few days the video received over one million views on YouTube. To watch the video, click HERE.

Since signing with RCA in 2012, San Cisco have completed three successful tours of the US, including appearances at both CMJ and South By Southwest. In January, the band was invited to open for The Vaccines on their U.S. headlining tour, which allowed them to play in front of thousands of people each night. Their own U.S. headlining tour followed, which included sold out dates at Bowery Ballroom in New York and The Troubadour in Los Angeles.

This self-titled debut is a collection of the band’s thoughts on life, growth, relationships and love all tied together with infectious drum beats, slashes of synth and bright catchy hooks. “They’re pop songs!” said the band’s Scarlett Stevens. “Like we didn’t know! That was the plan!” The thirteen songs perfectly capture their sunny outlook on life. “We want to make the music we think is cool,” Scarlett added, simply and concisely, which is exactly what San Cisco are great at.

“An irresistible Australian band, San Cisco specializes in songs you can’t get out of your head.” – NPR
