Matt Nathanson headlining shows this fall

Following his highest album chart debut to date, Matt Nathanson has announced the All Night Noise Tour, his fall headlining tour set to kick off on Sept. 25 in New Orleans.

These dates will immediately follow Matt’s cross country tour with Maroon 5 and Train, which starts on Aug. 27. Prior to his fall tour plans, Matt will be performing his hit single “Faster” on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on Aug. 1 and so a live performance on Fox News’ Fox & Friends morning show on Aug. 5. 

Matt’s latest album, Modern Love, was released on June 21 via Vanguard Records and debuted at #17 on the Billboard Top 200 chart, Matt’s highest chart placement to date. His first single “Faster” has spent the summer climbing the radio charts, and is currently #21 at Hot AC, # 48 at Top 40 and reached Top 5 at Triple A. 

Modern Love comes on the heels of 2007’s break-out success Some Mad Hope, which catapulted the San Francisco-based Nathanson from darling of the touring circuit with a devoted cult following to a bonafide hit maker and one of the premiere songwriters on the music scene today. Known for his legendary live shows that are both wildly funny and emotionally provocative, Nathanson took a year off the road to record Modern Love – the first break he has taken from touring in his 15 year career.

The success of Some Mad Hope and “Come On Get Higher” gave Nathanson a sense of accomplishment and confidence that allowed him to take a new approach to Modern Love, taking bigger risks and diving deeper into his vast array of musical influences. From the “Depeche Mode groove” in “Mercy (Less Drowning, More Land)” to the ecstatic opening track and first single “Faster,” to the soaring “Run,” which features Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush, Modern Love is a luminous and bold departure that translates brilliantly to the live stage.
