We Are Serenades Announce Headlining US Tour This May

WE ARE SERENADES

ANNOUNCE HEADLINING U.S. TOUR THIS MAY

‘Criminal Heaven’ Set for Release on April 17th on Cherrytree Records/Interscope

After playing a handful of amazing live shows at this year’s SXSW, Sweden’s We Are Serenades have announced that they will be hitting the road this May – marking their first headlining U.S tour. The duo will be showcasing songs off of their stunning debut album, Criminal Heaven, which is set for release on April 17th, 2012 on Cherrytree Records/Interscope. See dates below! In addition, We Are Serenades are giving you a taste of what’s to come by releasing an album sampler. Listen HERE!

Live, Adam Olenius (Shout Out Louds) and Markus Krunegard (Laakso) –two of Sweden’s most highly-regarded songwriters—are simply charming. The two sing together at all times to create a seamless, singular “third voice”, while delivering sunny harmonies that are nearly irresistible to not bop-along to and catchy as hell.  You do not want to miss out!

Watch We Are Serenades live in Stockholm HERE.

Praise for We Are Serenades:

 

“There's nothing sweeter than being serenaded by Markus Krunegård and Shout Out Louds' Adam Olenius. Their indie-pop music is blissfully soothing. … a compilation of musical and lyrical poetry that is layered in complexity. The songs often sound hymnal, and with their strings ensemble accompanied by choirboys on stage in Sweden, the band knows how to put on a dynamic performance.”  – InterviewMagazine.com  

 

“... the duo make dreamy, hope-filled tunes that will either compliment your pleasant surroundings or make you miss them.” – DeathandTaxesMag.com

 

“…Criminal Heaven… is chock-full of sparkling pop that seems aimed directly at the charts. It's slicker than Shout Out Louds (Laakso were pretty shiny, though they sang in Swedish) but still maintains that sharp melodic sense and shaggy, sad-eyed lyrical bent.” – BrooklynVegan.com
