American Authors 1
Frontier Touring are thrilled to confirm that acclaimed platinum-selling singer, songwriter and musician Andy Grammer will be appearing as American Authors’ very special guest on the band’s upcoming tour of Australia and New Zealand, treating audiences to a solo acoustic set.

In addition, Melbourne pop-rock band Masketta Fall will be kicking things off for American Authors and Andy Grammer on the Australian leg of the tour.

Andy Grammer’s remarkable career started on the humble streets of Santa Monica, CA and quickly catapulted as he became the first male artist to hit the Top 10 on Billboard’s Adult Pop chart with his first two singles ‘Keep Your Head Up’ and ‘Fine By Me’. His infectious debut single ‘Keep Your Head Up’ (click here to watch) features in the globally acclaimed movie Pitch Perfect and is now closing in on 9 million views on Youtube and has been streamed over 8 million times on Spotify!

Since his breakthrough debut, Grammer has continued to take Australia by storm, with his latest single ‘Back Home’ becoming the #1 most added song to radio in the week of its release (click here to watch). A month since it hit the airwaves, ‘Back Home’ is tracking strongly within the Top 30 of the ARIA Charts, The Music Network’s Hot 100 and also peaked at #7 on the most Shazamed tracks chart in Australia thanks to the Channel Seven House Rules finale promo (watch the promo here).

The joyously anthemic track is the strong lead single for Grammer’s second full-length album Magazines Or Novels (out 8 August through Liberator Music), pre-empting great things from this multi-talented musician and charismatic performer:

‘It seems like the years haven’t changed Andy’s knack for writing spirited pop anthems. ‘Back Home’ has the same infectious feel as his former chart-topping singles, and the same positive, invincible attitude. The lyrics are perfect for a fun summer track… and we dare you to try to not sing along to the chorus – it is too catchy not to.’ – Popcrush.com

Opening proceedings for the Australian dates will be Melbourne band Masketta Fall who formed in 2011 and have quickly proven themselves to be the ones to watch in the pop-rock music scene. Their extensive online presence led their 2012 debut Something Beautiful EP to reach #20 on the iTunes Pop Albums Charts and landed their recently released EP Parachute at #27.

In the short few months of their inception, they have supported Anberlin on their Australian tour and embarked on a headline tour of their own late last year in celebration of their Parachute EP. The band have just wrapped up a string of secret and intimate shows as well as club dates across Australia in support of their latest single ’Big Dog’ (click here to watch), pleasing fans in what they described as “a concert experience like no other!”

This will be American Authors’ first time performing in New Zealand where their fan base continues to grow along with their unquestionable ability to churn out hit after global hit like ‘Best Day Of My Life’ and ‘Believer’, as well as dominate television screens with TV performances and features on some worldwide advertising campaigns.

If having American Authors touching down on our shores wasn’t big news in itself, having Andy Grammer (Aus/NZ shows) and Masketta Fall (Aus shows only) joining them is sure to create a frenzy in tomorrow’s Frontier Members pre-sale for what is now going to be a stellar, foot-stomping show – not to be missed!
