The American psychedelic soul band debuted in 2019, and have since been highly critically acclaimed. They won Best New Band at the 2019 Austin Music Awards, and have acquired 6 Grammy nominations. The duo of Eric Burton and Adrian Quesada have sold out tours across America and Europe.
They've heavily toured this summer, and began pulling out of various shows in July. Beginning with Montana's Under the Big Sky, and following with Calgary Folk Festival and Innovation Festival in Missouri.
Their decision has been met with the utmost support from their loyal fans. As included in their statement, " We have the best fans in the world and appreciate each and every one of you for your support and understanding." Commenters are urging the group to enjoy their well-deserved break and thanking them for their handwork. One Twitter user wrote, "surely it will bring more creativity and beautiful tunes for the future."
Well, understandable guys. Very sorry for the fans but it surely will bring more creativity and beautiful tunes for the future. Cheers guys!!!
