Atlantic recording artist Marc Broussard has announced plans for a major North American headline tour. The dates herald the arrival of the Louisiana-based bayou soul troubadour's self-titled new album, due in stores and at all online retailers on June 14th.
Broussard and his band will hit the highway beginning June 14th at Los Angeles, California's El Rey Theatre and then continue through early August (see itinerary below). Among the support acts accompanying Broussard on the tour will be F-Stop Music/Atlantic recording artist Matt Hires and Chop Shop/Atlantic recording group Scars On 45.
"MARC BROUSSARD" is currently being heralded by the new single, "Only Everything," which has already begun scoring at Hot AC radio outlets nationwide. A companion music video -- directed by filmmakers Paul & Joey Boukadakis -- is now in pre-production with a premiere date to be announced soon.
What's more, Broussard will celebrate the new album's release with a much anticipated performance of "Only Everything" on an upcoming episode of TBS' Lopez Tonight, scheduled for June 13th (check local listings).
The story behind "MARC BROUSSARD" -- appropriately this unique artist's first self-titled album -- is simple yet eloquent: It's great music, pulled from the heart, crafted impeccably and delivered with deep emotion. From the exhilarating drive of its first single, "Only Everything," to the hushed and exultant old-school soul of "Lucky," to the swampy blues that haunts "Eye on the Prize," "MARC BROUSSARD" stands as a lesson in transplanting the seeds of American music into the spirit of today.
