Walk The Moon and The Nick Tree Band to Support Five-Date Tour, Kicking Off February 23 at the Riviera Theatre in Chicago

mtvU, MTV’s 24-hour college network, announced today that Young the Giant will headline the first-ever “Woodies Tour,” leading a five-date February excursion ahead of the “2012 mtvU Woodie Awards,” which is the only night honoring college students’ favorite emerging artists and music. Young the Giant will be supported by special guests Walk the Moon and MTV Hype artist Nick Tree.

Confirmed dates and locations for mtvU’s “Woodies Tour” include:
February 23, 2012 Riviera Theatre - Chicago, IL
February 24, 2012 Madison Theater - Covington, KY
February 25, 2012 Newport Music Hall - Columbus, OH
February 26, 2012 Beachland Ballroom - Cleveland, OH
February 28, 2012 The Majestic - Detroit, MI

The date and location of the “2012 mtvU Woodie Awards” will be announced soon.

Headlining act of the “Woodies Tour,” Young the Giant is a band that plays meticulously written and crafted songs, having received innumerable "Band to Watch" accolades and garnered massive critical acclaim from outlets like The New York Times, SPIN and Nylon. The band’s single "My Body" reached No. 4 on the Modern Rock charts, while "Cough Syrup" currently holds the No. 2 spot. The band saw its biggest spike in album sales directly after performing on the “2011 MTV Music Video Awards,” moving 10,000 copies of its debut in the week after the show and charting on the Billboard Top 200 albums and Top 100 singles charts. Young the Giant has also appeared on “MTV Unplugged,” VH1’s “Big Morning Buzz Live,” “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” and an upcoming performance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” for January 23, 2012 is scheduled, among others.

Walk The Moon, one of “MTV’s Artists to Watch for 2012,” have captured the attention of fans and critics alike with their colorful and energetic live performances. Currently in the studio putting the finishing touches on their forthcoming RCA Records debut, Walk The Moon are delighting and enchanting audiences with their dance-rock set, which includes the stellar "Anna Sun".  The band’s live shows are nothing short of electric, as seen in the band’s CMJ showcase for MTV Hive. It's no surprise that they have already received accolades from SPIN, Nylon, Esquire, Interview and The New York Post.

Keeping with the tradition of song writing as confessional, Nick Tree draws upon his personal notebooks to present music that is honest, stripped down and written without an audience in mind. Seeking distance from problems in his personal life in the U.K., he traveled across the U.S., and upon his return home, formed a band and recorded the E.P "A Story Born in Wonderland."
