MY EXCUSE, is hitting the ground running when they arrive in the US next week for the first leg of their year-long American tour. Helmed by singer/songwriter/guitarist Steven Triantafillis, the four man group will kick off their live performance schedule with appearances in Austin, TX during the upcoming SXSW festival. The band begins their Austin schedule with a day of interviews on Thursday (March 19). On Friday afternoon (March 20) MY EXCUSE will perform at the McDonald’s Free Food giveaway on the concert stage in downtown Austin. Later that evening, they will rock the audience at Spinner’s in nearby Round Rock, TX and the following afternoon (Saturday, March 21) they regroup for an acoustic set in downtown Austin. In preparation for their third and longest tour of the U.S, MY EXCUSE warmed up with a gig in London (February 9) performing at The Half Moon Putney on the historic stage that has hosted bands such as The Rolling Stones, The Who, and U2. The night before getting on the plane to The States, they held a send-of show for fans in their home town of Salonica, Greece. Additional dates are currently being scheduled, with confirmed concerts already booked in Dallas, New Orleans, Pensacola, Jacksonville, Dayton, Tampa, Athens (GA), Chapel Hill, Philadelphia, New Hampshire and New York City.
