Run Chico Run are taking it to the streets

Since the March release of Run Chico Run’s critically acclaimed sixth album, Slow Action, the Chicos have been touring constantly including two ‘cross Canada tours, one west-to-east coast USA tour and a heart-stopping showcase at the legendary South by Southwest Festival in Austin, TX.

The month of June gave the electro-pop duo a chance to cool their jets and take a breather. In that time, the Chicos made some really lovely new friends. So, with Slow Action hanging tight in the Earshot charts nationwide for over four months, Run Chico Run figured that now is as good a time as any to bring their music back to the people — new friends in tow.

Run Chico Run, Old Soul (Universal) and Panurge (Last Gang) are heading out on the most extensive tour of Canada that can be crammed into 16 days. Don’t miss this triple threat treat when it rolls into a town near you.
