GRAMMY-nominated rock band KALEO has announced details for their “Fight or Flight Tour” now taking place in 2022. Initially set for the summer of 2020, but rescheduled due to the global pandemic, the newly announced dates for the worldwide tour’s North American leg – which kicks off at Seattle’s Showbox SoDo on February 22, 2022 (full itinerary below) – are on sale now. Nearly all of KALEO’s Fight or Flight shows will take place in the originally scheduled venues, with previously purchased tickets being honored in most cases. For ticket info, individual show details, tour updates, and more, please visit www.OfficialKALEO.com.
KALEO’s current single “Break My Baby” – written solely by frontman, singer, and songwriter JJ Julius Son - has made an immediate impact at Triple A radio as the #1 most added song after its first week at the format. Additionally, the band recently unveiled a breath-taking, live performance version of the track that was recorded and filmed at the iconic ÞRÍDRANGAR lighthouse, located atop a remote rock formation in the North Atlantic Ocean, several miles off the coast of their native Iceland. The stunning video (watch HERE) follows two previously released, live performance visuals that feature the beautiful, environmental landscapes found in Iceland: “Save Yourself (LIVE at Fjallsárlón)” and “Way Down We Go (LIVE in a Volcano),” which showcased the band’s 2x-Platinum smash. Last year, KALEO performed an acoustic version of “Break My Baby” for NBC’s “Late Night with Seth Meyers,” captured in the middle of a picturesque lake near Julius Son’s home in Iceland.
“Break My Baby” follows the band’s other single “I Want More,” which reached #6 on Billboard’s Triple A radio chart and was performed live in studio on CBS’ “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.” Both tracks were delivered simultaneously last year to offer a first taste of new music since the band’s major label debut album, 2016’s RIAA-Gold certified A/B. KALEO subsequently released “Alter Ego” – which Julius Son calls “probably our most classic rock song” – and the brooding ballad “Backbone.” All four tracks will appear on the band’s forthcoming Elektra/Atlantic Records full length album Surface Sounds, set for release in the coming months. More details to be announced soon.
Since the release of their gold-certified breakthrough album, 2016’s A/B, Icelandic rock band KALEO—led by frontman/songwriter JJ Julius Son—has taken their music around the world. The album spawned three hit singles – the GRAMMY-nominated “No Good,” the Gold-selling “All The Pretty Girls” and the chart-topping, 2x RIAA Platinum-certified “Way Down We Go” which was used in over two dozen television shows from Grey’s Anatomy to Riverdale, leading the No. 1 single to top The Hollywood Reporter’s Top TV Songs chart. After amassing over 1 Billion global streams, 39 international certifications, and countless sold-out headline shows spanning from London to Moscow, KALEO has proven to be a worldwide phenomenon. Known for their electrifying live performances, KALEO completely sold out their first U.S. headline tour and was a standout at Coachella, Lollapalooza and Bonnaroo and recently were hand-picked to open stadium dates for the Rolling Stones. Since KALEO wrapped a nearly non-stop 3-year touring schedule in support of A/B in October 2018, Julius Son has been in the studio working on the highly anticipated follow-up, Surface Sounds on Elektra/Atlantic. Current single “Break My Baby” is available everywhere now, along with lead single “I Want More,” “Alter Ego” and
