Crew Love's Love Train Tour will take them to seven countries and 19 cities this summer.
The traveling party and collective is made up of Soul Clap, Wolf + Lamb and a number of artists from their respective labels. Crew Love Records released its first compilation, Based On a True Story, a couple months ago, with tracks from all 17 members of the group. Now they've announced a world tour with a rotating cast of core members and special guests. Soul Clap, Wolf + Lamb, Nick Monaco, No Regular Play and PillowTalk are on the roster, as are guests Tony Allen, Dimitri From Paris, Derrick Carter, The Black Madonna and more.
First up is Bonita Bay, Lebanon, on June 4th. The following night it's Studio 338 in London, where they'll celebrate the opening of the venue's new beach space. Next is a gig outside of Modena, 12 June, ANIMA: Crew Love Modena Edition at OLTRECAFE', before heading to Parc Del Forum in Barcelona, where they'll be joined by Nigerian musician Tony Allen with a live band. Then it's Kiev, followed by a week off before Piknic Électronik in Montreal on June 26th and Miami on July 1st. They'll play a string of US gigs through the first week of August—including two beachside gigs in NYC—before ending up in Istanbul for a show at Suma Beach. Then it's the Capidava Citadel in Romania, leading up to another stop in Chicago and one final gig in Toronto.
