Pre-sale Tickets On Sale Today; General Tix Available Aug. 6 Band To Release New LP 'Starcruiser' This Fall
Milwaukee alt-pop trio Vinyl Theatre have announced dates for a full U.S. fall headline tour, which kicks off September 5 in Chicago, IL and runs through November 10th.
Pre-sale tickets for the Starcruiser Tour, featuring support from Royal Teeth (Sept 5-21) and The Catching (Sept 5-21; Oct 7-Nov 9), are on sale now at https://www.bandsintown.com/en/a/7834674-vinyl-theatre, with general tickets on sale starting tomorrow, Friday, August 3.
The band’s upcoming third full-length album ‘Starcruiser’ will be out this fall.
Singer/guitarist Keegan Calmes says:
“Starcruiser tour is a first on many levels for us. We’ve headlined numerous times but this is our first time in some of these cities and venues. We put together this tour and album in conjunction with one another making this the most intimate show we’ve done to date.
We put together every layer of this full-length record and tour with our team brick by brick and we are ready to share our vision and sounds with you all. Over these past 4 years of touring we’ve been lucky enough to tour with some of the best bands and human beings we could ask for and so we’re taking some of those people on the road with us to give you the best show with 2 fantastic openers.
Starcruiser to us has been a journey of self-discovery and human resilience. Each song comes from a heartfelt and personal place and weaves its way through our lives and the lives of our family and friends. Through the caverns of anxiety and depression to the mountainous heights of victory and elation. This record wouldn’t be what it is without this tour and the inverse is just as true. This year we bring to you our best version of Vinyl Theatre we could create. We hope to see you at an upcoming show and we cannot wait to give you the full-length record we’ve been working on.”

2018 stands out as possibly the most transformative year of Vinyl Theatre’s career. Since amicably parting ways with their label Fueled By Ramen, the band emerged with a newly reimagined sound, which is clearly evident on their latest tracks, “Masterpiece” and “Feel it All.”
Creatively revitalized and feeling free to explore and create music that is boundless, they wrote songs that have expanded on their previous output, with the incorporation of programming and synthetic sounds. While still fully “Vinyl Theatre,” it is an exciting, bold and aggressive step that seems to have connected with fans old and new.
Following a busy touring schedule supporting the likes of Twenty One Pilots, Misterwives, Dashboard Confessional, Panic! At The Disco, The Mowgli’s and many others, Vinyl Theatre is eager to get back out on the road and bring this new energy to their already action-packed shows.
