Fresh from a summer tour with Round2 Crew, Will Jay, Bad Feelings, and Dylan Holland, Philly pop-punk outfit Rivers Monroe have been invited to partake in The Somewhere Before Christmas Tour, which finds the quartet supporting Epitaph recording artist SayWeCanFly, YouTube sensation Johnnie Guilbert, and special guests Social Repose and Chase Huglin.
The 24-city coast-to-coast jaunt sees the band adding to their storied touring resume which saw the band blaze Warped Tour last year while having previously played with the likes of Paramore, All Time Low, Fun., Incubus, The Wonder Years, Passion Pit, New Found Glory, twenty one pilots, Silversun Pickups and AllStar Weekend.
Showcasing singer Mike Monroe, keyboardist/vocalist Mat Rivers, bassist Kirby San, and a guitarist named Doc, this tightly knit outfit emit a fresh mix that’s hard to resist. As evidenced by the candied sunshine of “Hero Inside,” “Satellite,” and “Good Life,” from their sophomore album, Smart Girls, Rivers Monroe have crafted an impressive amalgam of daft punk anthems by injecting the melodic muscle of Mayday Parade, The Maine, and OneRepublic with a signature brand of soulful contraband.
Currently writing songs for their third album, the new opus will be co-produced by Rian Dawson of All Time Low.
