Renowned Indie Rocker Pete RG Launches U.S. & U.K. Tour With Original Pearl Jam Drummer Dave Krusen (Hall Of Fame Inductee) At The Helm
Critically-Acclaimed Indie Rocker Pete RG is known for bringing fans on a musical voyage that traverses genres, styles and influences to create a sound that is uniquely his own. But now, with the impending release of Whatever We Want, Whenever We Want, this modern-day troubadour is taking his music from coast to coast, and even overseas to the U.K., on his Fall tour.
Featuring Original Pearl Jam Drummer and Hall of Fame Inductee Dave Krusen on drums, the tour kicked off September 4 in San Francisco. The three month-run includes a show with ‘90s platinum-selling rock band Candlebox for their 25th Anniversary Tour and special appearances with Singer/Songwriter Dave Giles in London in November.
“We're excited to finally do a full tour in October and support our good friends Candlebox,” said RG. “Fans can expect a lot of new music from our forthcoming album Whatever We Want, Whenever We Want, as well as some even newer songs that we haven’t recorded yet. We like to test and refine songs in front of a crowd before recording them. Audiences are very honest. Plus, it puts some hair on your chest, as a band; except for Brina, of course!”
In conjunction with the tour, RG is also releasing the first single from the new album on September 14. Entitled “Watching The River Go By,” RG describes it as a “loungey, rock track that juxtaposes a chill bass-driven section one moment with euphoric guitars the next; all in support of a lyric struggling with the extreme discourse of our time”.
RG is also backed by Bassist Adam Kury (Currently in ‘90s Platinum-Selling Band Candlebox and formerly in Last December), Lead Guitarist Kevin Haaland (Formerly in Platinum and Double-Platinum-Selling Rock Band Skillet) and Keyboardist and Esteemed Engineer Brina Kabler.
The name “Pete RG” is taken from his childhood moniker, Argy, an abbreviation of his lengthy, Greek last name, Argyropoulos. After being the lead singer and principal songwriter of the band Last December, he embarked upon a solo career and Pete RG was born.
