Viva Voce Announces Fall Headline Tour!

“…a crafty he ‘n she team striding the dark, echoey corridors of the psychedelic folk museum.”
– Philadelphia Daily News

Viva Voce’s Kevin and Anita Robinson will be hitting the road this fall on their first nationwide headline tour in support of their newly released Vanguard Records debut The Future Will Destroy You. The tour kicks off September 8th in their hometown of Portland, OR. Additional stops include Seattle, Denver, Chicago, Philadelphia, New York, Washington, DC and Los Angeles. Special guests The Parson Red Heads will be opening for Viva Voce along this tour. See full list of dates below.

The 10 tracks on The Future Will Destroy You represent some of Viva Voce’s strongest songwriting and musicianship to date. The husband and wife duo combine heartfelt songwriting and walls of guitars, with their own unique recording methods (done entirely in their home studio) to craft a barrage of psychedelic and straight-ahead pop-rock hits.

Pop Matters raves, “The album can make a strong claim as being the band’s best….simply put, it’s a scorcher.” Blurt adds, “They constantly develop their unique blending of pop, indie-rock, neo-folk and psychedelia into the wholly singular sound that defies Viva Voce….If the future is out to destroy you, I say settle back, crank up the volume, and enjoy the inevitable.”
