Pacific Air Announce 2013 Tour Dates Supporting Ra Ra Riot and Walk the Moon

California’s Pacific Air have announced that they will embark on a 17-date Winter 2013 US tour supporting Ra Ra Riot. Additionally, a 7’’ vinyl of their first single “Float” will be available in stores via Barsuk Records on December 4th featuring Barsuk label mates Ra Ra Riot remix of the track as the B-side. The Lawhon brothers released their debut EP LONG LIVE KOKO via Republic Records on October 16th, which was produced by Chris Zane (Passion Pit, The Walkmen) and mixed by Michael Brauer (Coldplay, Grizzly Bear, Twin Shadow). The band had a triumphant Fall touring with Passion Pit, performing at CMJ festival in NYC and will be supporting Walk the Moon on their upcoming Winter 2013 tour before hitting the road with Ra Ra Riot on February 7th.

The band’s first single, “Float” has received wide critical acclaim thus far. Pitchfork said, “Ryan and Taylor Lawhon’s jangle of tambourines, whistles, and breathy harmonies rises to cruising altitude above the fray.” Ryan Lawhon’s haunting vocals and wistful melody on the track inspired such remix heavyweights as RAC, TheFatRat and Robert DeLong to work their magic resulting in a No. 1 and two top 20 chart positions on Hype Machine, which marks the fifth time on the band has topped the Hype Machine charts in two months.

This December, Pacific Air will hit the road on their first headlining tour across the Southwest. In addition to the headlining shows, the band will support select shows with Two Door Cinema Club and will play the Neon Gold/Popshop West 006 show on December 7th at The Echo in Los Angeles.
