RAC’s full North American headline tour “Going Our Own Way” begins this Fall

Thomas Bellflower
Fresh off the band’s Coachella debut, RAC—the solo project of songwriter André Allen Anjos—announces the “Going Our Own Way” full North American Fall headline tour performing selections from the band’s new single series and their 2014 full length debut Strangers. Please see below for full dates, including select shows with special guest Big Data, and additional cities to be announced soon. Tickets are available Friday.
Over the next several months, RAC (pronounced Ar-Ay-Cee) is releasing a collection of singles and corresponding music videos. Of the first installment, “Back of the Car,” NPR Music said “it’s got the foot stomps, unbridled sense of fun and MGMT-flavored synth line to prove it.” Listen to the track via SoundCloud HERE.
Born and raised in Portugal, Anjos studied piano and guitar in his teens and played in local bands. He moved to the U.S. to study music business at Greenville College in Illinois before settling in Portland, Oregon. Anjos founded RAC while in his college dorm and has since gained an audience creating remixes for Lana Del Rey, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Ellie Goulding, Foster the People, Phoenix, Imagine Dragons, Two Door Cinema Club, The Shins and Odesza, among many others.
RAC began releasing original content with their first song “Hollywood” via Green Label Sound in 2012. Anjos quickly proved himself as a songwriter with his debut album Strangers, which contains the singles “Let Go,” featuring Bloc Party’s Kele & MNDR and “Cheap Sunglasses” featuring Matthew Koma.
