We’re looking forward to returning to some of these iconic venues and bringing our show outdoors again this summer. Our single ‘Superposition’ is about two forces becoming one. It’s a song with a message that’s defied odds and garnered an overwhelming reaction. It’s perfectly fitting then, that our co-headline concept this summer is about combining two properties. We are excited to see you out there!”

Frontman Michael “Fitz” Fitzpatrick of Fitz and the Tantrums said, “We couldn’t be more excited to take over the summer with our friends Young The Giant on this co-headline tour! This is going to be a big year for Fitz and the Tantrums. We’ve got a lot of exciting news that we can’t wait to share with our fans.”

The track is also continuing its ascent on the Shazam Top 100, where it’s one of the chart’s Top 10 rock songs, and likewise, quickly becoming a multi-format success, entering the Top 10 at Triple A radio. The band recently performed “Superposition” on NBC’s “Late Show with Seth Meyers” to celebrate the kick off of their headlining North American tour.
