CSS unveil North American dates

Tour will coincide with release of new album

CSS have announced a string of US and Canadian dates which will see the recently-reshuffled band hit the road in July.

As previously reported, the Brazilian band just last week (April 11) became a five-piece following the departure of bassist Ira Trevisan.

Trevisan left the band to pursue other projects, including fashion and she deemed the departure “a big change of priorities, as I will never stop playing music.”

“I am also a bit worried about climate change. People should care more and do something about it. I decided to fly less,” she added.

CSS are currently working on their second album, which is scheduled to be released in July.

As part of the trek, the band will make a stop at Lollapalooza in Chicago on August 1. They were on the schedule for last year’s festival but after an over-booking situation on the airline on which they were traveling, they became stranded at JFK airport in New York and were unable to make their slot.

The dates are:

Minneapolis, MN First Avenue (July 30)

Milwaukee, WI Turner Hall (31)

Chicago, IL Lollapalooza (August 1)

Montreal, Quebec Osheaga Festival (4)

Toronto, Ontario Kool Haus (5)

Jersey City, NJ All Points West Festival (8)

Worcester, MA The Palladium (9)

Atlantic City, NJ House of Blues (10)

Morrison, CO Monolith Festival (14)
