After years of honing their craft, Aloud is trading in Boston winters for Los Angeles’ endless summers.
The band takes the next step this spring and will tour their way across the country with a new 7-inch single for the song “Empty House” in tow. The “double A-side” vinyl single also includes “Falling Out of Love”. The single is currently available for pre-order in the Aloud store.
Though the band has toured through Los Angeles over the years, there was something different about their recent trips west. “There was a shared sense that it was time to make a move,” says Henry Beguiristain, who co-fronts Aloud with Jen de la Osa. “The challenge of uprooting, the new opportunities to keep growing as songwriters, as musicians… the whole prospect is exciting.”
And the change in scenery isn’t bad either.
“Quite frankly, I’m a bit sick of shoveling snow,” laughs Jen de la Osa, co-lead singer, guitarist, and songwriter of the band. “L.A. was very much love at first sight”.
In addition to the tour, Acid VR — a new online VR Platform — has partnered up with Aloud to bring you loads of 360/VR content on the road. You’ll be able to travel with the band, hang out in the van for ridiculous conversations, and watch intimate performances.
(Incidentally, the best way to watch these videos is with your very own Aloud VR Cardboard Viewer available now in the store.)
“Empty House”/“Falling Out of Love” drops nationally on April 24, 2017. It was recorded and produced by Benny Grotto at Q Division Studios in Somerville, MA, for Converse Rubber Tracks.
