Boyce Avenue

After a hugely successful run of touring in early 2011, which saw the band playing sold out shows in the United States, Canada, and Europe, Boyce Avenue are back on the road soon with both a Summer tour of Australia and a twenty-four date USA & CANADA Tour beginning in September, and they are hitting some of the most iconic venues in these countries.

Boyce Avenue, a Florida-based band popular for its strong acoustic roots and melodic rock sound, consists of the three brothers Alejandro, Fabian, and Daniel Manzano. The brothers first came together as a band in 2004 when Alejandro (lead vocals, guitar, piano), Fabian (guitar, vocals), and their older brother Daniel (bass, percussion, vocals) reconnected after Daniel graduated from Harvard Law School and moved back to Florida, where Fabian and Alejandro were both attending classes at the University of Florida. It was there that the brothers continued to write music and to perform local shows, taking their most formative steps toward becoming a band.

In 2007, in an effort to share their music and ideas with the world, the band decided to start filming and posting videos on YouTube, including performances of their own songs along with some of their favorite songs by other popular artists. The videos began to resonate instantly with YouTube viewers, and, to date, the band's YouTube channel has amassed over a quarter of a billion views and over 600,000 subscribers, making it one of the most watched of all time, and a recurring presence on the Billboard Social 50 Chart. In 2010, the band released their debut album, All We Have Left, featuring the single "Every Breath," with a music video shot by acclaimed director Zach Merck (Blue October, Safetysuit).

Following the release of the album, the band has spent the last 12 months touring on an extensive worldwide basis, and playing for thousands of fans in the United States, Canada, the UK/Ireland, mainland Europe, and Asia. While the band loves connecting with their fans online, nothing pleases them more than getting out and putting on a one-of-a-kind show for as many of their fans as possible.

With the band returning to the road throughout the United States, Canada, and Australia this August, September, and October, be sure to catch this phenomenal band on their latest headlining tour. Tickets are on sale now, either online or at a location near you.
