MUSIC NEWS: MEG MYERS ANNOUNCES HEADLINE TOUR; NEW SINGLE “SORRY” OUT NOW

LISTEN TO "SORRY"
 
 
Atlantic recording artist Meg Myers has announced an extensive headline tour that will kick off inNew York City on May 11th at The Studio At Webster Hall. Meg recently released her much anticipated new single "Sorry" from her upcoming debut album of the same name which is scheduled for release this summer.
 
"Myers seethes during the song's opening moments, each word boldly uttered for maximum impact. As she's proven on her past releases, she's an artist unafraid to not only talk about her pain, but seemingly become one with it." -CONSEQUENCE OF SOUND
 
"True to form, her new tune 'Sorry' starts with an organic and natural intro before her powerful, melodic, and highly infectious voice takes center stage, plunging listeners into the intense rock and vocal-centric highs of the song. Everything about the track feeds into itself, from the softer moments, which don't last long to the unleashed and powerful instrumental moments. There isn't a dull second of this track." – EARMILK
 
Myers' sophomore EP, "MAKE A SHADOW," was released in early 2014 to widespread acclaim, withStereogum declaring the EP's startling single, "Desire," to be "something that is as sweet as it is unsettling." Led by tastemaker KRBZ"The Buzz" in Kansas City, "Desire" proved a Top 20 favorite at Alternative radio outlets nationwide, while the track's evocative companion video – hailed byNoisey as "simply stunning" – has earned more than 2 million views and counting at Myers' official YouTube channel,www.youtube.com/meginthedark. In addition, the EP's "The Morning After" and "Make A Shadow" both reached the top 5 on Hype Machine's "Most Popular" chart, with the latter track ranked among Amazon's "50 Best Songs of 2014."
 
Acclaimed as a provocative and dynamic live act, Myers spent much of the next year on the road, headlining clubs, supporting such artists as Royal Blood, Broods, and the one and only Pixies, and stealing the show at an array of top festivals.Rolling Stone praised Myers as one of the "Best Things We Saw At Lollapalooza," while theNew York Times applauded her set at NYC's Governors Ball for its "seething hard-rock riffs like early P.J. Harvey" and Myers' "imprecations at the destructive power of love and desire."
 
Myers also received attention from a variety of high profile media outlets, with highlights including features inBillboard, Teen Vogue, InStyle, and L.A. Weekly, not to mention her national TV debut live performance on NBC'sLast Call with Carson Daly (streaming now at www.nbc.com/last-call-with-carson-daly/video/meg-myers/n4437).
