Totally Michael To Heat Up The US On Winter Tour

It might be freezing across most of the country, but for Totally Michael there's no better time to conjure up a summertime dance party. The one-man dynamo is teaming up with The Death Set, Team Robespierre, Ninjasonik and Cerebral Ballzy, to spread his feel-good anthems and songs about simpler times. The Newmore Switch Blades Tour will kick off tonight, March 12 at The Shank in Brooklyn, veer south to SXSW and conclude in Philadelphia.

Dubbed the "indie party circuit's naughty little boy" by Big Shot and described by Alternative Press as melding "electronic sequences with pop-punk sensibilities," Totally Michael has been heating up rock clubs and house parties alike with his sweat-filled, participatory shows. This jaunt is just one of many for Michael who has been touring relentlessly, from Alabama to Australia, in support of his self-titled debut, which was released last fall on IHEARTCOMIX (Matt & Kim, Futurecop) and slated for re-release April 28 to take advantage of the label's newly signed distribution deal with RED.
