Back in December SomeKindaWonderful announced that they were going to be doing a Spring Tour. They first announced their upcoming tour in an e-mail following their Fall 2014 tour supporting Bad Suns and New Politics.
All over social media their fans were dying to see more of their fun performance and to hear more of their genre-defying setlist…

2014 ended with the guys visiting Germany to prepare a few teasers for their upcoming world wide album release. Meanwhile fans from across the US were waiting with increasing anticipation. Finally in January everyone’s prayers were answered…sorta…

That was enough to keep up hope! Then they even started playing games to guess the tour schedule getting everyone hyped up for their upcoming tour…

It wasn’t before long that people started questioning SomeKindaWonderful’s definition of “soon”

At this point I think they were just messing with us. Finally last night they gave us what they have been teasing for months. They made it well worth the wait too.
SomeKindaWonderful is known for having a unique connection with their fans. They have gone above and beyond connecting with their “Butterfly Militia” by sending hand written letters, video chatting, tweeting and retweeting, and one of the easiest ways they have connected is through SnapChat. So it makes perfect sense that they use social media to announce their upcoming tour!
Last night Jordy Towers took to SnapChat and announced each city in a video. Viewers were encouraged to screen shot their city and tag SnapChat, the venue, and of course SomeKindaWonderful to get the word out! Immediately the tweets started pouring in for what has to be one of the coolest tour announcements in social media. The videos were posted around 8pm EST so there are still a few more hours for you to go check it out and screen shot your city! I know I’ll be at an obnoxious amount of East Coast Dates so say hey if you see me there!!
