Raleigh’s Red Hat Amphitheater will welcome one of the country’s most well-known electronic rock acts this Summer. STS9 is coming to North Carolina’s capitol city Sunday, August 25th. The Santa Cruz, CA based five-piece will perform alongside Umphrey’s McGee. The bands are sharing headlining duties throughout their tour. This means that STS9 will be opening for Umphrey’s McGee when the band’s come to Raleigh. The band has earned positive reviews throughout its mostly sold-out Winter tour and recent Spring tour, which included a sold-out show at New York City’s famed Roseland Ballroom.
The band—Hunter Brown (guitars/keyboards), Jeffree Lerner (percussion), David Murphy (bass, synths), David Phipps (keyboards), and Zach Velmer (drums) is working on its twelfth full length studio release. The self-titled release is currently expected to be released this year on the band’s self-owned record label, 1320 Records. Its most recent release is its 2011 EP, When The Dust Settles. The EP debuted at #1 on the iTunes Electronic Chart and even garnered the band a spot in Billboard’s “Top 25 Albums” chart.
The band’s tour with Umphrey’s McGee is just one part of its busy tour schedule. The band is also slated to perform at a number of festivals this year, including: Camp Bisco, All Good Music Festival, and the new Life is Beautiful Festival. It also has on its schedule back-to-back headlining dates at the famed Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Colorado on September 6th and 7th.
