BLACK GOLD NEW YORK DUO ANNOUNCES EAST COAST DATES AS THEY PREPARE FOR NORTH AMERICAN FESTIVAL DEBUT AT ALL POINTS WEST ON SATURDAY, AUGUST 1 SINGLE “PLANS & REVERIES” HEADS TO ALTERNATIVE RADIO SET FOR APPEARANCES ON FEARLESS TV, DIESEL RADIO AND NEW YORK ALTERNATIVE ROCK STATION 101.9 WRXP
New York duo BLACK GOLD have announced a new set of East Coast tour dates--kicking off next Tuesday, July 28 in Washington, DC--in support of their acclaimed debut album RUSH, released earlier this year. These new dates bookend the band’s performance at All Points West--their debut performance at a major North American music festival--on Saturday, August 1. BLACK GOLD is set for a 1:10pm time slot on the Bullet Stage at All Points West, taking place at Liberty State Park in Jersey City, NJ.
Hailed by SPIN as "breathlessly experimental" with “sweeping orchestral rock,” BLACK GOLD’s RUSH has received critical praise from People, URB.COM, MetroMix, Big Shot and more. Currently, the album track “Plans & Reveries” is being serviced to alternative radio throughout the country. The video for the keenly constructed, keys-driven song--“…about the moment when you come to and realize what you had and what you’ve lost” (per lead singer Eric Ronick)--won mtvU’s weekly online competition “The Freshmen” earlier this year. Other standout tracks from RUSH include the infectious analog synth strut of “Detroit”--an iTunes “Single of the Week” last fall--and “Shine,” currently spinning on New York alternative rock station 101.9 WRXP.
BLACK GOLD—multi-instrumentalists ERIC RONICK and THAN LUU—is set to perform live on WRXP this Thursday, July 23 at 9am EST on “The Rock Show with Matt Pinfield and Leslie Fram” in advance of their All Points West appearance. In addition to WRXP, the band will host and perform during a live broadcast on Diesel:U:Music Radio this Friday, July 24 at 12pm EST, which can be streamed online at: www.dieselumusic.com. Also look for the band’s appearance on the nationally syndicated Fox television show “Fearless TV” later this summer.
