Rich Aucoin announced his 15 date PRESS ON tour. His new EP ‘Hold’ drops March 16th, and in conjunctions, Rich will be bicycling from city to city, raising awareness for mental health by donating 100% of tour proceeds to Mental Health America and The Canadian Mental Health Association.
Better yet, his bandmates are joining him on this ride across the US.
“At each show, fans can expect a joyous celebratory event – his positive life-affirming shows have often been described as a natural antidepressant.”
This tour starts on March 23rd in Los Angeles and will end in summer June 30th, NYC. “Fans who are unable to attend are encouraged to donate to Aucoin’s crowdrise campaign.”
His new single ‘The Fear’ debuted as well.
“this song’s single lyric is a mantra for the importance of overcoming our fears fostering the evolution and improvement of our lives. Fear is important but, left unchecked, can dominate our behaviour and hold us back from experiences just outside our reach. If our fears are of failure or rejection, the fears are moot as those are some of the most important tools we have to learn from. What would we be without our mistakes?”
It’s a fab track and serves well to help guide the listener to bigger and finer things upcoming in the EP.
‘The Fear’ follows the release of previous singles ‘Release’ and ‘The Middle’.
Aucoin is rep’ed by Bonsound, out of Montreal.
