Today, platinum-certified chart-topping NYC trio, AJR, drop their new album ‘Neotheater’ (AJR Productions/S-Curve/BMG). ‘Neotheater’ unlocks a world where forties-style technicolor choruses co-exist in glorious harmony with beats indebted to hip-hop under highly shareable social commentary on the universal conundrum of growing up.
The lead single from the album - the undeniable, offbeat anthem “100 Bad Days” was debuted on the outdoor stage of Jimmy Kimmel Live! and is quickly climbing the radio charts, hitting #11 on Alternative Radio this week and boasting over 40 million streams with 2 million streams gained every week. ‘Neotheater’ follows their 2017 sophomore LP The Click [AJR Productions/S-Curve/BMG], which earned an RIAA GOLD certification and included the huge singles ‘Weak’ (over 375 million streams on Spotify alone), Sober Up and Burn The House Down. They’ve now had over 1 Billion global streams across tracks and they are the only new band to have multiple songs on Billboard’s “Top 10 Alternative Songs of 2018.”
AJR recently announced THE NEOTHEATER WORLD TOUR, which sees the band performing at the most prestigious and highest-capacity venues of their career including NYC’s Radio City Music Hall, Red Rocks Amphitheater in Colorado and The Shrine Exposition Hall in Los Angeles. The tour also includes four dates in the UK & Ireland – including the Forum in London on 10th December. The new dates follow already confirmed US festival performances at BottleRock, Bonnaroo and Firefly this summer and a special release week underplay at NYC’s Bowery Ballroom next Monday which sold out in minutes.
The UK dates are:
10th London, Forum
12th Glasgow, SWG3 Warehouse
13th Dublin, Academy
14th Manchester, Academy 2

Comprised of brothers Adam, Jack and Ryan Met, AJR began their career busking in Central Park. Writing, producing, playing and singing everything themselves, the band have quietly charmed their way to mainstream ubiquity by way of clever, confessional and catchy alternative pop.
