Atlantic recording artist Meg Myers has unveiled details of her 2015 Fall Tour. The cross-country trek kicks off September 25th at Strummer’s in Fresno, CA and continues until the tour finale on November 17th at the El Rey Theatre in Myers’ Los Angeles, CA. Support on most dates comes from singer-songwriter Jarryd James, with additional dates featuring Meg as a special guest to Awolnation (see attached tour itinerary). Tickets go on sale to the general public beginning at 10:00AM local time on Friday, August 28th. For tickets and complete tour details, please visit www.megmyers.com/tour.

The thirty-two date run heralds the release of Myers’ much anticipated debut album, SORRY, which arrives everywhere on Friday, September 18th. SORRY is now available for pre-order at http://smarturl.it/SorryLP, with all orders accompanied by an instant grat download of the album’s latest single, “Lemon Eyes,” along with Myers’ previously released singles, “Sorry,” “Desire,” “Make A Shadow,” and “The Morning After.”

“Lemon Eyes” recently premiered on Stereogum and is currently streaming on Myers’ official YouTube channel. The powerful new single is receiving wide critical acclaim with Consequence of Sound praising the track as “intoxicating, fearless, and her most promising one yet”.

Meanwhile, “Sorry” – the album’s title track – hit top 15 at Alternative radio, marking Myers’ second consecutive top 20 track at the format. The single’s companion video – directed by Andrew Donaho (Jack Garratt, Raury) – now has over 1.6 million views and counting at Myers’ official YouTube channel:

SORRY has already begun to draw advance raves, with ELLE hailing its “battering guitars, shrieking, sinful vocals, and a fiery woman taking names and extinguishing her insecurities.” Cosmopolitan declared her as “the singer-songwriter, alt-rock heir apparent to Alanis Morissette,” praising SORRY as “equal parts haunting and headbanging.”

Acclaimed as a provocative and dynamic live act, Myers spent much of the next year on the road, headlining clubs, supporting such artists as Royal Blood, Broods, and Pixies, and stealing the show at an array of top festivals. Rolling Stone praised Myers as one of the “Best Things We Saw At Lollapalooza,” while the New York Times applauded her set at NYC’s Governors Ball for its “seething hard-rock riffs like early P.J. Harvey” and Myers’ “imprecations at the destructive power of love and desire.”
