The band follows these shows with a number of dates across North America, including a number of East Coast dates. For the band’s full itinerary, please see below.
 
Such Hot Blood marks TATE’s first album with Jacquire King, the three-time Grammy Award®-winning producer, engineer, and songwriter/musician whose credits range from Kings of Leon, Of Monsters and Men, and Cold War Kids, to Buddy Guy, Tom Waits, and Norah Jones. ? ?Such Hot Blood is the follow-up to All At Once, released April 2011, TATE’s second album and their first for Island Records (following their self-titled indie debut on Shout! Factory’s Majordomo imprint, released in 2008).  The release of All At Once was supported with an unprecedented series of multi-venue five-night residencies in the world’s three rock capitals – London, Los Angeles, and New York – encompassing venues of increasing size and capacity in each city.  Prior to those shows, TATE played a series of European residencies in Amsterdam, Berlin, and Paris.  
 
The Airborne Toxic Event – Mikel Jollett (vocals, guitar, keyboards), Steven Chen (guitar, keyboards), Anna Bulbrook (viola, keyboards, tambourine, backing vocals), Noah Harmon (bass, backing vocals), and Daren Taylor (drums) – earned their reputation as an aggressive touring band, known for playing more than 350 dates in support of their debut album release, opening for Kings of Leon, Franz Ferdinand, the Ting Tings, and many others.? ?The Airborne Toxic Event, who take their name from an incident in Don DeLillo’s terrifying 1985 novel White Noise (involving a poisonous cloud that erupts after a chemical spill from a railcar), are known for stretching the rock envelope at its seams.  The band is no stranger to grand musical gestures, for example, being the only modern music act to play at the esteemed Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles during its 2009 fall season.  The result was the concert-documentary film All I Ever Wanted (2010), chosen as an official selection to the Raindance Film Festival.  The band has performed with the Colorado Symphony, the Louisville Orchestra, and frequent collaborators the Calder String Quartet.??
