We Were Promised Jetpacks’ North American Tour Kicks Off Tonight

Scottish rock band We Were Promised Jetpacks begin their North American tour tonight in Richmond, VA at Richmond Music Hall. The band’s tour includes shows in major markets such as Atlanta, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, Toronto, Philadelphia, New York and more. We Were Promised Jetpacks will also perform at SXSW, Savannah Stopover and Treefort Music Festival.

Last fall, We Were Promised Jetpacks released their critically-acclaimed album Enjoy the View via Big Scary Monsters . The band shared three singles from the album, “Fat Chance,” “If It Happens” and “Not Me Anymore”

About Enjoy the View lead singer Adam Thompson explains, “We started properly writing this album at the end of March 2020 when we realized that everything was going to be shut down and that touring wasn’t going to be a possibility any time soon. So from March to June we sent each other ideas remotely and collaborated that way. I was so glad to have had a project to focus on when proper lockdown hit. When we were finally able to get into our practice space in July and write together in one room like we normally do, this song appeared pretty quickly.
