Atlas Genius – the Adelaide, Australia-based indie band that had sold more than 50,000 downloads of its breakout hit “Trojans” before signing to Warner Bros. Records earlier this year – will kick off its first-ever U.S. tour on August 11 with a performance at CD101 Summerfest at LC Pavilion in Columbus, OH. The run will include several West Coast dates with Animal Kingdom and radio shows in Seattle and Portland. See below for initial tour dates; additional shows will be announced shortly.

NYLON praised Atlas Genius’ “double whammy of high-flying pop melodies and instantly catchy lyrics” and Billboard tipped the band as part of “The Next Wave” of up-and-coming alternative bands. The band members are currently at work in their home studio on their full-length debut, which is due out this fall.
