The Unlikely Candidates bring grit to alternative pop. Today they announced that they’ll be bringing that sound on the road, co-headlining a tour with Brick + Mortar hitting major cities across the U.S. this Summer. Tickets for the tour are on-sale now, Click HERE to purchase.

The Unlikely Candidates boast a total of 18+ million combined streams on Spotify. Their latest single, “Oh My Dear Lord,” was recently released and is featured on the top rock Spotify playlists, Digging Now, New Noise, and The Scene and is currently one of the Top 50 songs at Alternative Radio. The band also co-wrote and are featured on the Dirty Heads’ new song titled “Celebrate,” which is currently #12 at Alternative Radio. The band also recently performed the song with The Dirty Heads on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Click HERE to watch.

Flaunting outsider panache and theatrical hooks as oversized as their home state of Texas, these outliers formed at a high school party before going on to release three EPs and log countless miles on the road alongside everyone from Sublime With Rome, The Offspring, the Dirty Heads and Fall Out Boy. In true Rockstar fashion, lead singer Kyle Morris continued to perform the band’s high energy set all while wearing a peg-leg crutch for his then-broken foot on their recent tour dates.

Most recently, 2017’s Bed of Liars spawned “Your Love Could Start A War,” which clocked over 5 million Spotify streams and charted in the top 40 at Alternative Radio. Along the way, the boys have earned acclaim from the likes of The New York TimesAXS, Esquire, and more. The quintet-Kyle Morris (vocals), Brent Carney (lead guitar), Cole Male (guitar), Jared Hornbeek (bass) and Kevin Goddard (drums)-kicked off 2018 by releasing a Deluxe Edition of their Danger To Myself EP which features the rising single “Oh My Dear Lord.” With “Oh My Dear Lord’s” early success indicators, this is just the beginning for The Unlikely Candidates.
