The band fronted by vocalist/songwriter James Allan hasn’t toured the U.S. since 2011.  Needless to say, the group is very excited.

“We are really looking forward to returning once again to North America in 2014,” the band said in a statement.  “We’ve picked some cool venues this time and we hope to see some old friends again and make some new ones.  Rest assured we will be playing the classics from Glasvegas and Euphoric Heartbreak and also playing you tracks from our brand new album Later … When The TV Turns To Static.  See you soon.”
