AUSTRALIAN HIP-HOP GROUP BLISS N ESO ADDED TO KOTTONMOUTH KINGS UPCOMING “PARTY MONSTERS” TOUR
Australian hip-hop royalty Bliss N Eso have announced that they will be taking their explosive live show to the United States throughout September, as the group will join the Kottonmouth Kings on the group’s upcoming Party Monsters Tour. The US tour kicks off in Houston on August 29th and whirlwinds them through 24 cities in less than a month before finishing in Kansas City on September 25th.
"We are really excited to be heading back over to tour the USA and see all our fans on the East Coast for the first time, we were stoked to receive an invitation from Kottonmouth Kings and can’t wait for the tour to kick off," commented Bliss N Eso’s MC Bliss. “Our first American tour was an eye-opener for us – there were fans that had travelled hundreds of miles just to see us. We’d never really known what kind of reception we’d receive in the US, and there we were with hundreds of kids from all over the States that knew every lyric to every track. We’re kinda used to that in other countries now, but it’s amazing to see in the home of hip-hop.”
Bliss N Eso’s new album, “Running on Air”, debuted at #1 on the Australia album charts and features guest appearances from the Wu-Tang Clan’s RZA and Xzibit amongst others. Bliss n Eso's latest album is available now through Itunes, check out www.blissneso.com forcmore info.
