Twin Shadow

You know when someone tells a story and says "crazier things have happened!" well, you always wish they would just tell you that crazier thing. Like, why would you want to hear a story that's not as good? My father told me great stories my whole life, I often wonder if his stories influenced the way I write music. When talk came up of Twin Shadow hitting the road this year I thought again about how we could make each show special, how each city could have a unique piece of Twin Shadow. I thought about my father's stories, I thought about the stories I tell my friends and I thought this tour would be a good place to share them, so for every city we play my father or myself will tell you one True Story. 24 Cities. 24 Stories. A story for New York, A story for Toronto, A Story for every show on the tour. A gem from the depths of my fathers life and a stone from the recent corners of mine, tales retold from lovers and friends. Welcome to the Twin Shadow True Story Tour.

Twin Shadow's True Story Tour will hit Texas for four shows this summer, including Austin at Emo's East on June 22. Tickets to that show go on sale today at 10 AM.

The other Texas dates for Twin Shadow are Houston on June 21 at Fitzgeralds, also Dallas on June 24 at Ganada Theater and El Paso on June 26 at Tricky Falls. As for those true stories, Twin Shadow is posting them here. All Twin Shadow tour dates are listed below.
