HANNI EL KHATIB TO TOUR WITH FLORENCE & THE MACHINE THIS JUNE

HANNI EL KHATIB TO TOUR WITH FLORENCE & THE MACHINE THIS JUNE

DEBUT ALBUM ‘WILL THE GUNS COME OUT’ COMING IN SEPTEMBER ON INNOVATIVE LEISURE

Hanni El Khatib, the multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter and producer, will be taking his guitar on the road this summer as he joins Florence & The Machine on their North American tour! The tour will start out west and make its way across the country, sporadically stopping for solo shows along the way including a stop in Manchester, TN for his debut appearance at Bonnaroo. Hanni’s sound is best described as the rock soundtrack to a glass-shattering knife-wielding dirty bar brawl between James Dean, Elvis and Clint Eastwood. As the first American in his family (son of Palestinian and Filipino immigrants), his obsession with classic Americana and pop culture of the 1950s and 60s mixed with his past as an avid skateboarder and creative director for HUF fittingly lends itself to the blend of blues, soul, garage rock and doo-wop for which he’s quickly developing a reputation.

Hanni El Khatib’s debut album Will The Guns Come Out drops September 20th on Innovative Leisure Records.

“Hard to believe that only one man can pack this much heat.” – NYLON

“Hanni El Khatib’s sound is a blistering barrage that you’d expect from a former San Francisco skate punk, recently transplanted to LA. Perhaps the closest comparison is to a “De Stijl”-era Jack White, if he had claimed lineage from the Stax catalog instead of Son House.” – LA TIMES

“Bathed in crimson light, these two men filled the giant theater with the kind of music you’d want at the beginning of a bar fight or when Clint Eastwood rode into town with a knife in his boot. Peppered with dark tales of violent love, betrayal, and a city that’s “dirty as fuck,” this was the kind of sound that crawled up your leg and made your hair stand on end.” – LA WEEKLY

“L.A.’s Hanni El Khatib proved there’s plenty of life left in the guitar/drums duo gimmick. Especially when it’s attacked with abundant garage punk swagger.” – BOSTON HERALD
