A R I Z O N A | FFO: Flor, MUNA, LANY, The 1975
Celebrating the release and success of their debut album, GALLERY, the band A R I Z O N A sets out on their headlining tour, with support from Glades, a tour that has sold out nearly every date. They’ll be performing in Portland on September 17, to a sold out crowd at the Holocene. More info of the show can be found here.
Following the release of GALLERY, A R I Z O N A has generated a lot of buzz and gathered a lot of attention from the alt/pop industry. Almost immediately, they became a recognizable and talked about name within the electropop genre. Their first few singles including “I Was Wrong”, “Oceans Away”, and “Cross My Mind” generated millions of online streams, allowing them to tour as a supporting act in 2017 with Kevin Garrett and COIN. Since the album’s release, A R I Z O N A has played several festivals such as South By Southwest, Governors Ball, Firefly, and Lollapalooza. Their success and popularity is further proven by a nearly sold out headlining tour across the US.
A R I Z O N A consists of a three piece group Zach Hannah, Nate Esquite, and David Labuguen; while their sound consists of 80s reminiscent synths, dynamic guitar, and Nate’s powerful vocal range. A R I Z O N A has created something remarkable and made a statement with their debut, and the possibilities of the bands future and direction are extremely exciting. How they bring the album to life live is set to be something special, and will be incredible to experience at a sold out intimate venue like the Holocene.
