MOD SUN ‘Pink Lemonade’ Headline Tour Kicks Off October 23

With his signature blend of contagious, positive and explosive energy, artist/musician Mod Sun will headline an 11-city fall headline trek, dubbed The Pink Lemonade Tour, featuring support from Los Angeles rockers New Beat Fund, who combine sunny surf rock with elements of hip-hop, garage pop and west coast punk, Australian “love rapper” Allday and Rhode Island indie hip hop artist Benny Freestyles.

The tour will find Mod picking up where he left off after a triumphant summer on the Vans Warped Tour, where he performed in front of record breaking crowds, racking up rave reviews along the way.

Dates kick off on October 23 in Santa Ana, CA and wind down on November 5, at New York’s storied Webster Hall. Immediately following The Pink Lemonade Tour, he will embark on a headlining European tour, promoted by Live Nation. Dates for the European run will be announced shortly.

Mod recently unveiled his latest music video for the vibrant and colorful single, “Free Love,” via Youtube. The uplifting and free spirited track appears on his self-produced LP, ‘Look Up,’ which in addition to being available in the US, is now available in Australia via iTunes, Spotify and Google Play.

The clip, directed by Mod himself, was shot at the Hippy Hideout in North Hollywood, CA this past May (the same location that Mod directed Machine Gun Kelly’s video for “Sail”, which has over 30 million views.)

Mod Sun’s debut LP ‘Look Up,’ was released in the U.S. this past March and features guest appearances by Machine Gun Kelly, Jody Highroller, G-Eazy, Blackbear, Travis Barker and Dizzy Wright and also includes his audio book, “Did I Ever Wake Up?.”

The prolific rapper, who has released a steady string of EP’s, singles and mixtapes since 2009, has also collaborated with artists such as Schoolboy Q, Nipsey Hussle and Ab-Soul.
