|FALLING UP WILL CAPTIVATE AUDIENCES WITH TOUR BEGINNING FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 7TH
10 September 2007
In preparation for their upcoming third studio release, Captiva, alternative rockers Falling Up will be hitting the road this week for “The Captiva U.S. Tour” featuring This Beautiful Republic, The Send and A Dream Too Late. The tour will begin on September 7th in Knoxville, TN and conclude on October 8th in Oklahoma. Captiva (BEC Recordings) will hit consumers’ hands on October 3rd.
"This fall tour will be unlike any other for Falling Up,” shares lead vocalist for Falling Up Jessy Ribordy. “Not only will we be playing new material from our upcoming album (Captiva), but our show will be more exciting than any previous tour. I really feel like we accentuate the extremes of our music during this set, and we are so excited to present The Captiva U.S. tour to every single person that comes out."
Captiva is a three-dimensional, dynamic exercise that captures the strengths of their first two records while introducing a deeper, more profound element to the music. Running the gamut from the metaphorical to the candid, the lyrical content of Captiva is multi-faceted and dynamic, paralleling the sonic qualities of the record.
The airwaves have played a major role in shaping the impact of Falling Up and promises to play an even larger role in the influence of Captiva. “Hotel Aquarium” will undoubtedly serve as one the year’s most influential singles already shooting up to No. 3 on the Rock chart before the album’s release.
Hailing from Albany, Oregon, Falling Up transformed into a full-time musical project after graduating high school in 2002. The act quickly made its first impression in the national music scene with its Aaron Sprinkle-produced debut, 2004’s Crashings. Following the release, the band embarked on a steady stream of tour dates (with over six tours and 400 shows in a two-year span) establishing a strong, loyal fan base. In October 2005, Falling Up came back with an astounding new studio release steering clear of the sophomore slump with Dawn Escapes, which surpassed all expectations. Last fall, the band mixed it up with the release of the band’s hits on the remix album Exit Lights.
