It’s a family affair for intelli-pop Texan band Eisley this summer, for the set of siblings will take their sweet songs across the country in support of their upcoming sophomore effort, Combinations (due Aug. 14th via Warner Bros). First, Eisley will make its rounds down south before playing a handful of shows in the southwestern U.S. Next, the groupu will head toward the West Coast for dates opening for the Fray. From there, they’ll move eastward, showing a little love the Midwestern cities like Detroit and Minneapolis in Aug. Eisley enamors the South from then on, hitting Texan cities plus additional gigs in Tennessee, Georgia, and Florida before finally capping things off in New York City Aug. 20th.
