(via Press Release)—Multiple-GRAMMY® Award-winning singer/songwriter Rob Thomas has announced the second leg of his North American Chip Tooth Tour, supporting his fourth solo album Chip Tooth Smile (available now via Emblem/Atlantic Records). The 18 new dates will kick off August 16th in Port Chester, NY for a second night at Capitol Theatre and continue through end of September, featuring special guest Max Frost (select shows only). The tour’s first leg is set to kick off May 28th in Red Bank, NJ at the Count Basie Center for the Arts and will continue through early August.
Debuting at #3 on the Billboard Top Album Sales chart, Chip Tooth Smile has been met with an outpouring of critical acclaim since release last month. “Rob Thomas is an expert at his craft” raved Variety, while Forbes echoed “’Chip Tooth Smile’ is vintage Thomas – smart songwriting, excellent pop/rock craftsmanship, eclectic and at times moving, at times, fun, and always solid.” The 12-track collection features production from Butch Walker (Panic! At The Disco, P!nk) and Benny Blanco (Ed Sheeran), perfectly complimenting Thomas’ long-acclaimed songwriting talent.
Chip Tooth Smile was heralded by lead single “One Less Day (Dying Young),” which is continuing to see success at Hot AC radio, charting in the top 15 following recent performances on ABC’s Good Morning America (WATCH) and The Ellen DeGeneres Show (WATCH). Rolling Stone described the song as “thunderous, life-affirming” and “an impassioned vocal performance,” while Billboard declared it to be “one of the boldest singles released so far this year.” The album also includes standout tracks “Timeless,” inspired by classic songs of the 80s, and “I Love It,” which is currently being used nationwide for the 2019 NBA Playoffs (WATCH).
Fan club pre-sale access for the second leg of the Chip Tooth Tour will begin this Tuesday, May 14th at 10 AM (local), with public on-sale beginning Friday, May 17th at 10 AM (local).
