Following their triumphant performance at this years Glastonbury Festival, The Boxer Rebellion announce a headline tour in support of their latest album UNION. Following the albums pre-release in January, they made history by becoming the first unsigned band to enter the US Billboard 100 Albums Chart on a digital only release. UNION birthed a phenomenon when lead track, Evacuate became the first iTunes Global Single of the Week, clocking up a staggering 560,000 downloads in 7 days. On fanbase alone, the album knocked My Morning Jacket off the iTunes US Alternative Charts top spot, while also becoming an iTunes Top 5 album on both sides of the Atlantic - all within 48 hours of release. The four-piece band - comprising US vocalist Nathan Nicholson, Aussie guitarist Todd Howe and Brits Adam Harrison on bass and Piers Hewitt on drums have become known for their epic, powerful, and energetic live performances, and most recently hit headlines again when they announced a ground-breaking partnership with HMV.
The aptly-titled and self-produced UNION is the triumphant result of what can be achieved when ability, commitment and relentless drive converge towards a shared, immovable goal. From the opening assault of 'Flashing Red Light Means Go' through the insistent 'Spitting Fire' to the redemptive closer 'Silent Movie', the overriding effect of UNION is of going through an emotional storm and arriving replenished on the other side. UNION follows the band's 2005 debut LP EXITS, of which NME proclaimed at the time, 'This band can alter your life.' Kerrang! wrote, 'If you're crying out for substance in music, The Boxer Rebellion are here to soothe your soul,' and both The Fly and MusicOMH dubbed the album 'flawless'. UNION is without doubt a classic-in-waiting. We suggest you add this album to your record collection and see this band live in an intimate venue while you still can...
