Winter 2018 Tour Rumors?



  • Hmmmm....I honestly hope they take some time off to write new material after this tour....but I'm selfish!



  • @Philthy I think that they have new material that they haven't played yet. Listen to that debut of The Road, sounds like they had that pretty flushed out before the 15min long debut!



  • @Cody True dat but I want more more more! Lol


  • $$$

    So far in 2017 they have debuted the following songs:
    It’s a bunch
    Mind’s unchained
    My road (my road)
    Simon & lily
    Steak sauce

    I wonder how many more new ones they haven’t played yet?



  • Good thought about new material, wasn't even thinking about that. Okay okay early winter tour -> Record album -> full blast summer tour -> release album -> sick ass fall tour

    I planned the year for them. You're welcome, Spafford

    In reality I'm happy with whatever I'll find my way to see them next year I'm not worried. That 420 fest looks kick ass I'm gonna have to find a way to make it there

    @dontjudgedave That schedule looks good to me haha. I would love a full summer tour but I feel like they're gonna be doing the festival circuit again



  • @myanruth I think you might be right...it's a "bang for your buck" situation... festivals give great exposure to potential new fans...a bit more so than individual shows...just hoping that if it's a festy summer, they get improved lineup placings this season.

    they're still in pretty small letters for the 420 Fest so until those letters get bigger the time slots won't improve much. On the flip side the longer those letters stay small the easier it is to see them. Its a catch-22 as fans we want to see them succeed but also retain the intimate feel.



  • When the Peach fest lineup got announced, Spafford was on the bottom tier; when they updated the lineup, Spafford moved up a tier; when it came time for the festival, they were given a 2hr time slot, which is even more than the headliners get. Their slot should have only been 1hr long, but their rise in popularity just in that short time justified giving them a double time slot. I think that goes to show that they are exponentially growing and they will be given improved slots in festivals this summer. I mean even with the 420 fest, there are some big names there on the lineup, so for Spafford to even be there is an accomplishment in itself. There is no way that they will skip out on festivals, because that is a huge part of the music scene today whether you like it or not! haha



  • I really hope they swing through NC. Would love a Raleigh -> Asheville stretch. They could kill Lincoln Theatre in Raleigh.
