Banking On New Banks Dates

Banks is ready to prove that she deserves a spot on those lists packed with up and coming stars like the “BBC Sound of 2014” and MTV’s “Brand New For 2014.” The alternative/R&B signer’s debut North American headline tour begins in May.

But first she has a round of gigs in the U.K. to take care of, including tonight’s show in Manchester. Plus, she’ll take the stage at Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival April 12 & 19.

Banks spent last fall touring in support of The Weeknd.  

The Los Angeles-based signer, who was born Jillian Banks, released her latest single, “Brain,” in January. Her debut album is due out later this year via Harvest Records/Good Years.

Check out the official video for “Brain” below.
