The band stopped by WNYC for a performance on Soundcheck yesterday, host John Scheafer talks to the brothers about going from “street buskers to arena rockers” on the heels of their new album.

Neotheater follows their 2017 sophomore LP The Click, which earned an RIAA GOLD certification and includes PLATINUM certified single “Weak” and GOLD certified singles “Sober Up” and “Burn The House Down.” The band crossed 1 BILLION streams and they are the only new band to have multiple songs on Billboard’s “Top 10 Alternative Songs of 2018.”
The band will celebrate the release with an intimate hometown performance at the Bowery Ballroom on April 29, which sold out in minutes. They kick off THE NEOTHEATER WORLD TOUR this fall, performing at the most prestigious and highest-capacity venues of their career including NYC’s Radio City Music Hall, Red Rocks Amphitheater in Colorado and The Shrine Exposition Hall in Los Angeles. The new dates follow already confirmed US festival performances at BottleRock, Bonnaroo and Firefly this summer. The band sold over 100,000 tickets on their Click Tour in 2018, which wrapped up with a SOLD OUT show at NYC’s Hammerstein Ballroom in December.
