Twin Shadow Announces North American Tour

Featuring True Stories From George Lewis Jr. and His Father

Feb 07, 2013 Bookmark and Share


 

Twin Shadow's George Lewis Jr. has come up with a rather interesting approach to a newly announced set of live performances to support last year's sophomore LP Confess. Labeled the "True Story" tour, the North American trek will have Lewis joined by his father George Lewis Sr., with each taking a turn to tell the attending audience "one true story" from their lives.

In a statement by Lewis: "You know when someone tells a story and says 'crazier things have happened.' Well, you always wish they would just tell you that crazier thing. Like, why would you want to hear a story that’s not as good? My father told me great stories my whole life, I often wonder if his stories influenced the way I write music. When talk came up of Twin Shadow hitting the road this year I thought again about how we could make each show special, how each city could have a unique piece of Twin Shadow. I thought about my father’s stories, I thought about the stories I tell my friends and I thought this tour would be a good place to share them, so for every city we play my father or myself will tell you one True Story. 24 Cities. 24 Stories.  A story for New York, A story for Toronto, A Story for every show on the tour. A gem from the depths of my fathers life and a stone from the recent corners of mine, tales retold from lovers and friends. Welcome to the Twin Shadow True Story Tour."
