Cursive Announces 2015 Tour Dates
Indie emo rockers Cursive have just announced their touring plans for early 2015. The guys will kick things off at Denver’s Bluebird Theater on February 10 and from there make their way to the Pacific Northwest, by way of Salt Lake City and Boise, to play Neumos in Seattle on February 14. They’ll then play down the West Coast to San Diego, followed by a show in Albuquerque, and a run through Texas — from El Paso to Houston. They’ll hit Florida to play Orlando’s The Social on March 3 and then tool around the South for a few performances, eventually making their way North for shows in Washington DC , Philadelphia, New Jersey and then a two-night stint at New York’s Bowery Ballroom on March 10 and 11. They’ll keep going North into New England, before turning West to take the stage in Cleveland, Michigan, Chicago and Minneapolis. They’ll close out the tour at the Waiting Room in Omaha on March 21.
Formed in Omaha, NE, in the 1995, Cursive initially broke up just before the release of their second album, but then reformed in 1999. In 2000, they recorded their first concept album, Domestica, gaining attention from critics and a larger fan base. Known for their mixing post-hardcore and indie sound, Cursive’s songs tend to have a narrative-focus, utilizing reflective (and sometimes obtuse) lyrics. Their most recent record, 2012’s I Am Gemini is about “twin brothers separated at birth, one good and one evil, their unexpected reunion in a house that is not a home ignites a classic struggle for the soul.”
