New Noise Proudly Presents:
American Football vs Chinese Football
China Tour 2019

July 30 Beijing Omni Space
July 31 Shanghai Mao Livehouse

The amazing promoters had this to say:

“We welcome emo math rock wonders American Football for their long-awaited China debut on July 30 at Beijing / Omni Space and July 31 at Shanghai/Mao Livehouse. What’s more, Chinese Football will be opening the evening!

With their landmark self-titled debut album in 1999, American Football set the seminal standard for the emo post rock world to follow. They then split up pretty much on release, leaving a generation of fans yearning for more. Fast forward fifteen years, and the group reunited, now as a four piece with Nate Kinsella joining the fold playing huge shows to audience that have been waiting to see them for over a decade. Their first release since their reunion LP2 was widely praised by fans and critics alike, but the band members still felt like their best work was yet to come. “ LP3 “ just released in March 2019 is a body of work that is bold, contemplative, rich and as expressive as fans have come to cherish with American Football and marked them out as a band reformed that has truly augmented rather than tainted their musical legacy.

New Noise have been supporting Chinese football since their early start inviting them to open up for multiple shows in their hometown of Wuhan. Throughout the years Chinese Football have established themselves as the voice of a new generation. The band just released their new EP “Continue?” and sold out shows all over the country, making them more than ready to take up the battle against American Football!

American Football will play their first ever show in the territory. Tickets for this double bill come on a first come first served basis, surely to be one of the most anticipated shows of the year.”

The complete dates of the Asian tour is as follows:

July 30 – Beijing
July 31 – Shanghai
Aug 1 – Hong Kong w/ Chinese Football –
Aug 3 – Bangkok –
Aug 4 – Singapore –
