Owl City Announce Whirlwind Summer Tour Including Shows With Relient K

Indie electro-pop sensation Owl City reveals details for their whirlwind summer on the road: a first EVER headlining US tour that includes a show at NYC's famed Bowery Ballroom on May 7th, a late May/early June West Coast trek with Relient K and performances at Bamboozle, Sasquatch, and Summerfest festivals. The band also announces a series of monthly single releases on the first Tuesday of each month starting with "Hot Air Balloon" on May 5th and leading up to the release of Owl City's new full-length album Ocean Eyes - due out September 1st. Over the next four months fans will be introduced to four new songs that will be featured on the upcoming album and get a chance to check out Owl City live!

Hailing from the quiet town of Owatonna, MN, Owl City is already something of a phenomenon, with over 200,000 tracks and 20,000+ albums sold digitally. Most recently, the tracks "Hello Seattle" and "Rainbow Veins," held spots in the top 10 on iTunes Top Electronic Tracks Chart alongside M.I.A., Daft Punk, and The Postal Service and Owl City's previous self-released albums - Of June and Maybe I'm Dreaming - also charted with iTunes and both currently hold spots in the top 10 on the iTunes Top Electronic Albums Chart. In a true testament to the mass appeal of the music, Owl City has become a MySpace sensation with over 6 million profile views and over 25 million plays and is making a colossal impact on the music scene.

Owl City played their first ever shows this past February when they headlined the Varsity Theater in Minneapolis, MN and Schuba's in Chicago, IL. A live story started in a way many bands dream of - with two sold out shows. This is further proof that Owl City has captured the hearts and ears of many through their music. With Ocean Eyes set for release this fall and the band's first headlining tour just around the corner, Owl City is poised to break out on an even bigger scale.
