Peach Pit 2021 Tour

By Hannah DiPilato

The popular musical group Peach Pit has announced rescheduled tour dates for their North American Headline tour. They are also set to release the deluxe version of their sophomore album You and Your Friends on October 2nd. 

Peach Pit hosted a Live Nation virtual concert where they announced the new dates for their headline tour which will now take place in 2021. Originally scheduled for spring 2020, the tour had to be pushed back a year due to the ongoing pandemic. Fortunately, most of the shows have a new date so fans can still watch the group perform when it is safe. 

The band’s tour will now begin on Monday, March 1, 2021, with the first performance to take place in Victoria, BC. This tour will be hitting larger venues, such as NY’s Brooklyn Steel and LA’s Fonda Theatre which currently has two nights scheduled. A few new shows have been added for fans in Ottawa, ON, Buffalo, NY, Richmond, VA, Asheville, NC, Columbus, OH, Austin, Houston and Dallas, TX. Unfortunately, the shows at Off Broadway Nightclub in St. Louis, MO and The Bowery Ballroom in New York, NY have been canceled, but refunds are being offered for these shows by point of purchase. Luckily for fans, tickets that were purchased for shows are now able to be used for the rescheduled dates. The new tour dates and ways to purchase tickets can be found on Peach Pit’s website

“We’re so excited to announce the rescheduled and new tour dates for 2021,” expressed band member Neil Smith while announcing the tour. “Assuming that guidance from our public health officials tells us it’s safe to be on the road, we can’t wait to get out and make up for lost time and play the songs from You and Your Friends live.”

The deluxe version of Peach Pit’s album You and Your Friends is set to be released on October 2 via Columbia Records. The deluxe version of the album will feature three songs not found on the original. These tracks include “Adidas,” “Denny’s Garage,” and “Psychics in LA,” and have been highly awaited by fans. The band has been performing “Physics in LA” at live shows for the past year so this song especially listeners have been on the lookout for.

Tune In Tonight for Lil Baby’s Performance at Howard U

Rap Life, Apple Music’s industry leading hip-hop playlist, will feature an important and meaningful live event captured on the campus of Howard University – one of the most historic and prestigious HBCU (historically black colleges and universities) in the world. This special live-streamed event aims to further extend the discussion around the many important issues impacting the Black community through open dialogue, important conversations, and the power of music.

Hosted by Apple Music’s global head of Hip-Hop and R&B, Ebro Darden along with Apple Music 1 hosts Nadeska and LowKey, the event will feature intimate conversations and bespoke performances from beloved rappers Lil Baby, Nas, Rapsody and Wale. As the events of 2020 continue to reveal the broken systems within our society, these artists stand out as incredibly passionate and outspoken advocates for their community, using both their music and social influence to promote issues like police reform, racial and gender equality, social justice, and standing up to racism.

“The Rap Life team’s main objective was to use our voice and tools to show support and solidarity with students, artists and activists around the nation rising up to make sure the world knows that Black Lives Matter,” Ebro said “We plan to bring Rap Life Live to more HBCU campuses because these institutions are part of the backbone of Black communities and Hip-Hop is from the Black experience.”

When asked why he wanted to participate, Lil Baby said, “I feel like we got a long way to go. I’d be lying if I said we are getting there. Don’t get me wrong it’s a start, but it’s going to take some time for this to work out.”

Wale said, “Black people need to understand and hear each other, combine our messaging and give it to the world.”

Rapsody said, “our voice is our biggest weapon. You have to speak up for what you want. You have to be the change. Speak to each other. Speak up, let people hear you.”

Nas said, “Whatever is going on in society, affects people. People affect society. And People are going to speak and artists are going to make art.”

Additionally, Rap Life Live will feature sit down interviews with Howard University students – including student association president Rachel Howell, Miss Howard University Taylor Davis and president of the 10for10 organization Peter Lubembela – providing a global platform to empower the next generation of leaders as they discuss how they are working to inspire, educate, unite and uplift their communities.

Tune in to the very first Rap Life Live Friday September 18, at 7 pm PT only on Apple Music HERE

Sasha Sloan – Is It Just Me?

Critically acclaimed singer/songwriter Sasha Sloan unveils new track “Is It Just Me?” today. This is the 3rd track to be released from her upcoming debut album, Only Child, which will be released on October 16th, 2020 via RCA Records (pre-order it NOW!). Listen HERE.

“Is It Just Me?” is full of Sasha’s candid and witty observations and brilliantly sharp and relatable lyrics that her fans relish. It follows the release of the poignant and brutally honest self-reflective track “House With No Mirrors” which Idolator called “…stunning…” and the critically praised first single “Lie” which has been called a  “…bittersweet bop…” by Idolator and declared a “…straight up radio hit…” by Billboard.

Sasha will be performing “Lie” on NBC’s The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on September 24th.

Additionally, Sasha has opened a fan community forum  that can be accessed by calling the number at the end of the “Lie” music video. Once in the community fans can leave Sasha notes, poems, lyrics and more which she will read and interact with providing an outlet for those who wish to express themselves through their creativity.

ABOUT SASHA SLOAN

After emerging in 2017 and appearing on a handful of high-profile collaborations, 25-year-old singer/songwriter Sasha Sloan released her debut single “Ready Yet.” Since then, she has established herself as a true wordsmith, an artist’s artist, who crafts potent melodies filled with poignant lyrics. As a songwriter Sasha has amassed over 3.5 billion streams by penning hits for some of today’s biggest artists. In 2018 Sasha released her first two EPs, Sad Girl and Loser. Her track “Normal” has been heralded by Billboard as a “catchy introvert anthem.”  These emotionally-rich, left-of-center pop releases lead to her late night debut on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert in 2019 with a performance of “Older.” That year, Sasha completed her first North American and European headline tours (sold out) and released her 3rd and final EP Self Portrait, which had her single “Dancing With Your Ghost” as Idolator’s 6th “75 Best Pop Songs Of 2019.” She also recently scored a #1 on the Dance Chart for “I’ll Wait,” her collaboration with Kygo. Remarkably before she has released a debut album, Sasha has garnered over 2 billion streams worldwide to date.

Joseph Black × Luh Kel – Homesick

Today, the rapper/singer/songwriters Joseph Black and Luh Kel share their new emotionally charged single “Homesick.” Released via Untold Stories/Electric Feel/Capitol Records, “Homesick” reveals Blackߣs incredible gift for merging heart-on-sleeve storytelling with hard-hitting beats. Listen HERE and watch the lyric video HERE.

With its potent rhythm and haunting piano work, “Homesick” brings Black’s melodic flow to a high-impact track detailing his experience in heartbreak and betrayal. The song’s moody intensity is perfectly amplified by a soul-stirring verse from Luh Kel, a St. Louis-born rapper/singer/songwriter known for his gold-certified 2019 single “Wrong.”

“My life took a change for the better which caused me to move away. Now I am homesick for a person, and that’s what I expressed when I made this,” says Joseph Black “It doesn’t matter where I am in the world, you are my home and without you I am homesick.”

Bittersweet but undeniably catchy, “Homesick” spotlights the raw emotion Black has previously brought to tracks like his recent single “see you later” and his hit record “(i hope you) miss me.” A breakup anthem released on Valentine’s Day, the latter became a major phenomenon on TikTok thanks to a trend ironically started by the very ex for whom Black wrote the song on. Now at over 60million global streams, “(i hope you) miss me” also landed in the top 5 on Spotify’s US Viral 50 chart and garnered over a 3 million TikTok creates.

ABOUT JOSEPH BLACK

A 22-year-old self-made rapper, singer, and producer, Joseph Black is on a mission to make it. Thanks to his DIY hustle and tremendous talent, he first cracked the mainstream with “(i hope you) miss me,” a painfully honest breakup anthem released in early 2019. Hailing from Duluth, Minnesota, Black had a chaotic upbringing that included growing up poor and frequently getting into fights at school before eventually dropping out. At age 15 the self-taught musician began exploring his creative side, inspired by an eclectic mix of artists ranging from Eminem and Lil Wayne to a number of country singer/songwriters. For several years he turned to the lawless, drug-ridden streets of his city, but never stopped pursuing his passion for music. With a sound that’s a virtual Pandora’s box just as likely to deliver a melodic banger, street anthem, or turnt-up-party-jam. Black is on the verge of a breakout and hopes his music offers others the same solace it’s always given him.

deryk – goodtimes

Auckland-based, UK-born newcomer deryk first arrested us with her affecting voice on her debut single “Call You Out” earlier this summer. She has since shared the moving follow up “One Star,” alongside announcing plans for her debut EP release WOMb out on October 2nd.

The EP focus track, “goodtimes” is a heart-on-sleeve account of a time in deryk’s life that she invites us to share with her. The song, which is at times almost uncomfortably intimate, succinctly showcases her impeccable ability to harness a mature understanding of life’s common experiences. A tale of heartache and lessons learnt, “goodtimes” manages to be both melancholic and uplifting—like only the best multidimensional pop music can.

LISTEN TO “goodtimes” HERE!

“‘goodtimes’ is about not being able to reminisce or enjoy looking back on a time period in your life because it turned out to be a complete waste of time. It’s like Good Times, except the tainted, bitter version. I don’t believe in regret because ‘everything is a learning experience blah blah blah’ but reminiscing and only seeing your oblivious, vulnerable self. Wearing rose tinted glasses can be self-destructive. Accepting defeat and letting ‘the goodtimes go’ is a healthy next step. At least you know better now,” says deryk.

The sound of deryk is unique and captivating, molding distinctive, rhythmic vocal phrasings and visceral lyrics around craftily submerged melodies and ghostly modular tones. Slow music for fast times, space and solace amongst the confusion, a gentle reveal in the age of instant gratification, mordant lines over sumptuous melodies—deryk is something special.

deryk is heavily influenced by British culture in all aspects for her creativity thanks to her mum. Musically, she draws inspiration from powerful female artists like PJ Harvey, Fiona Apple, Esperanza Spalding, Kate Bush, Joni Mitchell and Bjork, as well as her love for Bristol and its culture in the 90’s, deryk has crafted her own sound that feels utterly contemporary while still retaining a hazy, timeless quality. Contributing to that is production and writing spar, Justyn Pilbrow, whose extensive experience with artists like The Neighbourhood, Chelsea Jade and Halsey helped deryk capture her vision.
