EXCLUSIVE: Chase Huglin and Candy Hearts announce acoustic tour, the Summer Series

Substream is thrilled to announce that we are the presenting sponsor of the Summer Series, the upcoming co-headlining summer tour between Chase Huglin and Candy Hearts with special guests September Stories. But this isn’t any regular tour: The Summer Series will be completely acoustic, with each gig taking place in unconventional locations such as coffee shops, DIY spaces or even house shows. Better yet, the artists want you, the fans, to get involved and bring the tour directly to your town.

“I really wanted to break down the barrier between fans and musicians and create a living room/small venue tour, to give fans the unique experience to see bands that frequently play larger venues in a different setting,” explains Huglin. “The hope is to keep the ticket prices low, and when booking the tour give fans and smaller promoters a chance to book the tour.”

“When Chase came to me with the idea of the Summer Series, I was so pumped,” comments Candy Hearts frontwoman Mariel Loveland. “Aside from a show here and there around home, Candy Hearts has spent the last couple of years playing larger tours—which we love immensely, obviously—but we haven’t had the chance to play acoustically in an intimate environment in years. I think a tour like this brings in the best parts of summer—staying up late and playing music with your friends. A show that seems more like hanging out with your best friends than attending a rock concert.”

You can see the Summer Series tour routing below, and if you want to get involved and bring the bands to your town, hit them up on Facebook now. Once venues are confirmed for each city, Substream will be the first to bring them to you.
