Whiskey Falls To Make European Debut Next Month
Fresh on the heels of two 2008 CMA Music Fest performances, Whiskey Falls hits the road hard this summer with dates in England, France, Canada and even a volcano in Japan.
In between three months of shows across the U.S., the band will make stops in Canada in June, England and France in July and play the Country Gold Festival at the largest ACTIVE volcano in Japan in October. The dates in Europe and Japan mark the first shows the band has ever played outside North America.
The UK show will be held in London on July 25 at the world famous Borderline, followed by an appearance two days later at the Country Rendez-Vous Festival in France.
"We could not be more excited about taking our live show, and country music, overseas where many of our influences originated," said lead singer Seven Williams.
Without any major label support, Whiskey Falls has already graced the pages of People, USA Weekend and Billboard magazine this year. They have also been featured on Extra! and the CBS Early Show.
Named 2008's 'Breakout Band of the Year' by Music Row, Whiskey Falls' self-titled debut album produced two Top 40 hits in "Last Train Running" and "Falling Into You."
Their foot-stompin' baseball anthem "Load Up the Bases" was selected by Fox Sports South as the official theme song for the network's Major League Baseball coverage. The song can be heard in stadiums across the country throughout baseball season.
Whiskey Falls' hectic schedule in 2008 has already included major festival appearances and special events such as the Super Bowl Tailgate Party, Country Thunder USA Festival, Stagecoach Festival and the ACM Jam at Fremont Street.
