Basement Announces Headlining North America Tour
w/ Turnstile, Defeater, Colleen Green

Promise Everything Out January 29, 2016 on
Run For Cover Records

Basement announced a headlining US tour today in addition to their previously announced European dates in support of their upcoming full-length Promise Everything, with openers Turnstile, Defeater and Colleen Green (all tour dates below).  VIP tickets for the tour are on-sale now at, general tickets will be on-sale on Friday, December 4 at 12pm local time.  Promise Everything comes out January 29, 2016 on Run For Cover Records, and Basement have released the title track from their forthcoming record (listen here), which already has almost a half-million plays on Spotify.  The new album is now available for pre-order via Run For Cover Records.

After abruptly announcing an indefinite hiatus only weeks after the release of their 2012 breakthrough LP Colourmeinkindness, Basement went on to gain an intensely devoted posthumous following. The record went on to sell over 25,000 copies worldwide in the absence of live dates or press coverage. In 2014, the band reconnected and found time amongst other obligations to write and record the EP Further Sky. Immediately inspired by the creative chemistry they felt from these sessions, Basement were ready to work on something more significant.

Promise Everything is the band’s first time back to full-length writing and recording since their hiatus. Sonically, the record breaks progressive new ground for Basement despite the creative process sharing much in common with previous endeavors.

Promise Everything situates Basement at the forefront of the rock world, pairing aggression with an inherent sense of melody.  Where before on the band’s previous album Colourmeinkindness, songs focused more on aggression and lyrical content, Promise Everything takes a more melodic approach and as a result the songs feel like they are truly part of the same group. Despite years spent apart, it would seem Basement’s musical conversation has always lingered – and as their first true cohesive document, Promise Everything is only the beginning.
