The Greeting Committee To Embark On North American Headline Tour This Fall
Dandelion (Deluxe) Available Everywhere Now
Returning to the road in 2022, The Greeting Committee will embark on an extensive North American headline tour this Fall. It kicks off on November 6 at Aggie Theatre in Fort Collins, CO, makes stops in major cities coast-to-coast, and concludes on December 11 at Aisle 5 in Atlanta, GA. For the first time ever, the band will be offering exclusive VIP packages—more info HERE.
A special Spotify presale for the tour launches on July 26 at 10am local time and runs through July 29 at 10am local time. The official artist presale begins July 27 at 10am local time until Thursday July 28 at 10pm local time. General on-sale commences Friday July 29 at 10am local time. Support acts for the five-week jaunt will be revealed soon.
Check out the full confirmed itinerary below.
The tour follows a string of sold-out dates and rapturous shows for the group. Earlier this summer, The Greeting Committee unveiled Dandelion (Deluxe). It boasts three never-before-released tracks [the band’s self-produced cover of MGMT’s GRAMMY®-nominated hit “Kids,” “Make Out (8-Track)”], a live version of “Can I Leave Me Too?,” “How Long?” (Tune-Yards Remix), and “Sort Of Stranger” feat. Briston Maroney. Download / stream Dandelion (Deluxe) (Harvest Records) HERE.
The follow-up to the band’s 2018 debut album This Is It, Dandelion found the three-piece band working with esteemed producer Jennifer Decilveo (MARINA, FLETCHER, Bat for Lashes) and mixer Dave Fridmann (The Flaming Lips, Tame Impala), delivering a moody and mercurial sound perfectly suited to the album’s emotional terrain.
While often brutally honesty, Dandelion radiates an irrepressible and unbridled energy, thanks in part to the joyful chemistry that The Greeting Committee bring to every track. To that end, the band selected the album’s title due to its suggestion of an unlikely hope.
Christened “a raw and beautiful breakup album” by Ones To Watch, Dandelion has already amassed millions of streams thus far.
Upon its release last fall, Atwood Magazine hailed Dandelion as “a blue-eyed record that showcases the band’s widening range: what once were vibrant chamber pop tunes that recall The Hush Sound have turned into buzzing, heavy rockers with a dose of ‘90s nostalgia.” FLAUNT said, “If you have yet to hear about The Greeting Committee, prepare to fall in love.”

About The Greeting Committee:
Comprised of Addie Sartino and Pierce Turcotte, joined by Noah Spencer and Micah Ritchie, the spirit of purposeful sharing has served as something of a lifeline for Kansas City band The Greeting Committee.
After making their Harvest debut with the Meeting People Is Easy EP in 2017 and the subsequent release of This Is It, the band spent much of the years to follow on the road, with sold-out headline shows in major markets such as Chicago, Austin, New York, Los Angeles, and San Francisco.
To date, they’ve toured with the likes of Bombay Bicycle Club, Tennis, Hippo Campus, and Rainbow Kitten Surprise and taken the stage at leading festivals like Lollapalooza and SXSW, in addition to delivering the I’m Afraid I’m Not Angry EP in late 2019 and appearing in Netflix’s To All the Boys: Always and Forever in 2021.
The band’s sophomore album ‘Dandelion‘ is out now via Harvest/Capitol Records with a deluxe edition, including tracks with Briston Maroney and Tune-Yards. Sartino and Turcotte are currently working on the band’s next project.
