Station going on first-ever North American tour (hitting LI)

Station_band

New York City’s own Station have announced their first-ever North American tour, in the form of an east coast outing this spring and summer.

The Jaunt takes off on May 12 in Whitesburg, KY and charges through 13 more markets (including Effingham, IL with Vince Neil) before crashing down in New York at Long Island’s Jones Beach Bandshell on August 23 [tix tba].

Here’s more about the band via their official tour announcement:

Rock is Dead. It’s a cliche that’s been around since before the days of disco, and gets proven wrong again and again. The way New York quartet STATION see it, melodic hard rock has never died, and they’re not looking to save it, just drag it back to the forefront where it belongs. Driving hooks, choruses you’ll be singing long after hearing them and a work ethic as strong as their riffs have been the band’s calling card since their formation in 2011.

Co-founded by guitarist Chris Lane and vocalist Patrick Kearney, STATION are based in New York City, but have toured the country, having played Rocklahoma three times, as well as the M3 Festival, Musikfest and hundreds of shows to the Mississippi and beyond. The band, which also includes Emi Asta and Jimmi Kane, have shared the stage with the likes of Y&T, Pat Benatar, Lynch Mob, and Dio’s Disciples while making fans wherever they play courtesy of their high-energy stage show and the music they write.

Catch all upcoming dates and a full steam of Station‘s debut LP after the click.
