Diet Cig has been on tour since the end of January, traveling all over the US, sharing their splendid indie pop to every corner of this country. They are about to cross Texas and make their way up the east coast, so now’s a great time to buy tickets before they pass your city by! Thrillcall will also be giving away a pair to one lucky winner at select shows. See below for more information.
Diet Cig is Alex Luciano (guitar and vocals) and Noah Bowman (drums). This winter 2018 tour will mark the first time the band is playing as a 4-piece as the duo will be joined on stage by Anna from The Spook School (bass) and Karli from Plush (keyboards/vox).
2017 saw Diet Cig release their debut album, Swear I’m Good At This, to world-wide critical acclaim. The album showcases Diet Cig’s tenacity for crafting life-affirming, relatable tales with a gutsy heart at their core. Luciano has the ability to write lyrics that are both vulnerable and badass, perfecting a storm of emotive reflection that creates a vision of a sweaty, pumped-up room screaming these lines in unison.
This fall Luciano took place in a round-table discussion hosted by The New York Times whose headline read, “Rock’s Not Dead, It’s Ruled by Women.” The band were previously featured in the paper the week Swear I’m Good At This was released. Diet Cig have also found fans at NPR where in June they were named the favorite band, so far, of 2017 by listeners. They went to their offices for a Tiny Desk Session and played 3 tracks — “Sixteen” and “Tummy Ache” off the LP and “Harvard.” off 2015’s EP, Over Easy. To date the band has released the singles “Barf Day,” Tummy Ache, “Link In Bio” and “Maid of The Mist.”
