Skyharbor announce European tour


Skyharbor have announced a European tour for later this year.

The run of dates is scheduled to kick off at Cologne’s Euroblast festival, Germany, on October 1 and will wrap up in Aarau, Switzerland, on October 15.

It will be the band’s first European dates with frontman Eric Emery, who was hired after Dan Tompkins left in June last year.

The band say in a statement: “Europe and the UK, we’re delighted to be prancing across your beautiful continent once again this October with our dear friends Sithu Aye and Modern Day Babylon.

“It’s been a while, and we have some surprises up our sleeves for you guys. See you on the road.”

Last year, Skyharbor released the track Out Of Time – their first material with Emery.

Guitarist Keshav Dhar said at the time: “Out Of Time marks the start of a very exciting and challenging phase for us as a band. With each release, we love to explore a different facet of our music, and add that to the core musical values that define us – emotion, intensity and groove.”

Further European dates are expect to be revealed in due course. The band’s last release was Guiding Lights in 2014.
