Cloud Cult lines up three Minnesota dates on new tour

Cloud Cult Announce Fall Headlining Tour in Support of New Full-Length Studio Album – Light Chasers – Out September 14th on Earthology Records!

New York, NY – Cloud Cult are excited to announce their fall headlining tour in support of their new full-length album – Light Chasers – due out September 14th on Earthology Records.  The record is the band’s first new studio release in more than two years and critics are already weighing in favorably with Pitchfork calling the album “…epic, millennial indie rock…” and John Richards from KEXP saying that Light Chasers is “the best thing Cloud Cult has ever done, which is saying a lot as everything they’ve done so far is near perfection.”

The US headlining tour will kick off near the band’s home base of Minneapolis at St. Olaf College in Northfield, MN and the trek spans out over the next three months taking Cloud Cult to nearly every major US city and finds them playing renowned venues across the country including the Bluebird Theater in Denver, the Showbox in Seattle, the Trocadero in Philly and First Avenue in Minneapolis. 

This run will also include a very special performance with none other than Boulder, Colorado’s eTown ( on September 12th.  This show will be taped in front of a live audience and can be heard coast-to-coast on NPR/public, commercial, and community radio stations.  Held at the Boulder Theater, the grand atmosphere will perfectly compliment Cloud Cult’s unique stage performance. eTown has a long history of presenting a variety of well known acts including Ani DiFranco, Beth Orton, Bright Eyes, Cyndi Lauper, Imogen Heap, Ingrid Michaelson, Jason Mraz, Matthew Caws from Nada Surf, Moby, Patterson Hood & John Neff of Drive-By Truckers, Spoon and The Avett Brothers just to name a few.  

Cloud Cult will hit the East Coast in October and on November 17th and 18th they will be headlining First Avenue in Minneapolis for two hometown shows in celebration of the new album.  This choice of venue is especially befitting as this past July, First Avenue honored Cloud Cult with a star on the side of the venue.  This symbol of appreciation has also been extended to the likes of Aerosmith, Big Star, Depeche Mode, Devo, Flaming Lips, Foo Fighters, Metallica, Nirvana and PJ Harvey as well as many other acclaimed artists.
