Now, Now are thrilled to announce new headlining tour dates this fall across the US. Earlier this summer, the acclaimed Minneapolis duo released the single “SGL,” their first new material since their widely-celebrated 2012 sophomore album, Threads. It was hailed as “an instant classic” by NPR Music and named to their list of 2017’s “Songs of the Summer.” The song has also been streamed over 1 million times since release, and hit the Spotify Top 10 Viral as well as the Global Top 20. Taking to the road this past July on a limited run - their first live dates in over three years - they dazzled fans and critics with sold-out shows in LA, New York, and select cities in between. This fall, they’ll be making their way from Seattle to Washington DC, where they’ll be performing at DC’s fourth annual All Things Go Fall Classic, alongside Foster The People, Bleachers, and Vince Staples, among others. All upcoming tour dates are listed below.

With the release of “SGL”, Now, Now emerged from a transformative and transitional few years since their last shows played in support of Threads. As they wrapped up nearly three years of writing, recording, and then touring in support of Threads, KC and Brad were mentally and emotionally worn out. “We couldn’t find a way to recharge ourselves creatively,” recalls KC, and that lead to a feedback loop of writer's block and self-doubt. And so they took a step back, focusing their energy on songwriting and producing outside of Now, Now, or with different artistic mediums like Brad’s work in visual art for bands including Sylvan Esso, The National, Minus the Bear and War On Drugs. The break allowed  them space to work on figuring out the bigger picture of who they were as artists and musicians, rather than staying trapped in tunnel vision, focused on a next album.

When all was said and done, Now, Now’s new songs have come out all the better on account of that soul searching experience. “I feel more confident and more like myself than I ever have,”KC shares. Having lived through the fits and starts together, Brad and KC describe their working relationship as more in sync than they’ve ever been before. “Our new songs happened so naturally after we stopped overthinking and started going with our instincts,” says KC. “We learned a lot about each other. More than anything we have learned to trust in ourselves.”
