The Blue Stones Announce New Tour Which Will Be Making a Stop in Montreal

The Alt-rock duo The Blue Stones have announced a heaping dose of tour dates throughout The States surrounding their support tour with Grandson. The band will perform on select radio shows and festivals, most notably Bottle Rock, Shaky Knees, LaureLive, and 98Rock Festivals.

“We’ve been waiting for a coast-to-coast headline tour for a long time,”says the duo’s frontman, Tarek Jafar. “We’ve been waiting for the entirety of our band’s existence. Don’t expect a marathon pace. Come ready for a rock show,” 

The Blue Stones recently released three new videos filmed when the band stopped by SiriusXM. In addition to two original songs, the group did a knockout cover of The Rolling Stones classic,“(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction.” Those tracks and more are featured on an all-new EP that came out on January 11, 2019, titled,Live In SIRIUSXM Studios.

Late last year the group debuted a music video for their hit single,“Black Holes (Solid Ground),” via Billboard Magazine. Directed by Jason Lester and filmed in Los Angeles, CA, this was the first music video the band had released from their new LP. “Black Holes (Solid Ground)” peaked at #31 on the Alternative Chart and #22 on the Mainstream Rock Chart simultaneously, a feat not many artists get to claim and even fewer claim on an independent record label.
