Caitlin Krisko And The Broadcast Autumn UK Tour

After building a cult-like fanbase over the past year with a steady wave of  singles, rising American roots rock band Caitlin Krisko And The Broadcast will embark on their first UK headline tour this September through to October.

The tour follows Krisko’s inaugural 2023 UK tour in support of burgeoning California rockers Robert Jon & The Wreck, and will be pre-empted by the release of their debut EP Blueprints due out 16th August.

Krisko said of that previous UK outing, “There is a vibrancy and enthusiasm to UK audiences that is unlike anything I’ve ever experienced on tour. The fans there have completely stolen my heart, and I am genuinely overflowing with gratitude for the dream opportunity to return this fall for our album release tour!”

After the unexpected death of her mother in 2023, Blueprints is an introspective reflection on the waves of emotion that follow such a loss. Caitlin Krisko is said to deliver soaring melodies while simultaneously pouring her soul into the centre spotlight of the record. On it, gut wrenching ballads like ‘Haunted By Yousit comfortably next to groove heavy rock anthems like ‘Piece of You’.

Blueprints puts the listener in the front seat for the Krisko experience as she turns to the music to capture her grief in songs like ‘Have To Say Goodbye’ and ‘Blue Monday’. Uplifting the listener with songs like ‘Devil On Your Side’ and ‘Operator’, her songs have been described as “celebrations with storytelling lyrics that take you for a full spectrum ride”.

Born in Detroit, raised in New York City and currently living in Asheville, North Carolina, Caitlin Krisko has been influenced by the sounds of East Coast rock and roll, Motown, and roots music. The band features Aaron Austin (Guitar, background vocals), Michael W. Davis (Drums), and William Seymour (Bass, background vocals). Caitlin Krisko And The Broadcast has shared the bill with artists such as Mavis Staples, Marcus King, Blackberry Smoke, Margo Price, The Avett Brothers, Greta Van Fleet and Robert Jon & The Wreck.

Last autumn, the band released ‘Haunted By You’ that was placed at the top of Spotify’s Blues Ballads playlist, garnering critical acclaim.

The band has worked with producers such as Eric Sarafin (Ben Harper, Foreigner, Barenaked Ladies), and Jim Scott (Red Hot Chili Peppers, Tedeschi Trucks Band, Johnny Cash, Grace Potter) while also releasing 2020’s album Lost My Sight working hand in hand with legendary session giant; previous member of Tedeschi Trucks Band, and David Bowie’s Blackstar Tim Lefebvre and current TTB drummer Tyler ‘Falcon’ Greenwell.

Fans of Caitlin Krisko And The Broadcast can check out the video to ‘Piece of You’, their new single that will be available on all platforms as of 17th May.

Tickets for the band’s UK tour go on sale at 10am on Friday 26th April here.
