By Musiqtone News

DIY still is strong in 2019.  The Rocket Summer, aka Bryce Avary announced today (6.4) that he will be embarking on a 28 date North American tour in the fall to support his upcoming album Sweet Shivers.  The album will be released on August 2 and his first album in three years.

Fans will be treated to new songs live for the first time, all delivered in his signature frenetic stage energy combined with his equally signature intimate moments that has defined his stagecraft over the years. 

VIP packages will be available for all shows and include: one (1) general admission ticket, early entrance, an acoustic performance, an exclusive VIP tour laminate, a signed poster, and a meet & greet that includes a photo opp. An optional add-on will be available for anyone who wants a signed vinyl copy of Sweet Shivers. On June 5, the VIP pre-sale will be open to anyone who pre-orders the album. On June 6, VIP will be on-sale for all, and on June 7, general admission will be on-sale. Tickets & details can be found at

Avary writes to his fans in the press release: “The Rocket Summer Tour 2019. It’s time. Playing live and living within the spirit of the collective heartbeat we share inside these rooms, around these songs, is like oxygen to me. Join me as I finally come up for air. My band and I, along with you, plan to annihilate the spirit of the mundane and throw color into the grey night after night. I need this, I need you and I can’t wait to see you soon.”

We got our first sneak peek into Sweet Shivers in the form of the first single to be released, titled “Shatter Us.”  The emotional music video that accompanies the single features dancer/actress Brianna Brill and features a cameo by Avary himself.  Video is featured below the tour dates and tracklist.
