Multi-platinum selling X Ambassadors have released a stunning stripped-back version of their single ‘Ahead Of Myself’.

This flawless rendition comes before the band kickstart their European headline tour tonight with a show at a near sold-out (1700 capacity) Brixton Electric. This is their first visit back to the UK since their sold-out show at London’s ULU in August and appearances at Reading and Leeds Festival last year.

The band, who are best known for their smash hits ‘Renegades’, ‘Unsteady’, and their recent collaboration with Machine Gun Kelly and Bebe Rexha on the chart single ‘Home’, are set to release Joyful, the follow-up to their 2015 gold certified breakthrough album VHS, via Kidinakorner/Interscope Records this Spring.

As well as ‘Ahead Of Myself’, the trio have shared from the album the soulful title-track ‘Joyful’ and the latest single ‘Don’t Stay’. All three tracks come with videos that were filmed live, capturing the incredible vocals of frontman Sam Harris and the precise playing of band members Casey Harris (keys) and Adam Levin (drummer).

Having emerged out as one of the hottest upcoming bands in 2016, breaking into the UK Top 40, collaborating with top names artists such as Eminem, Tom Morello and Imagine Dragons and accumulating multi-platinum sales, X Ambassadors continue spreading joy through their soulful, alternative music and remain one of the most successful, yet under the radar US bands around.

ANNOUNCE UK AND EUROPEAN HEADLINE TOUR

BRAND NEW ALBUM DUE SPRING 2018   ‘AHEAD OF MYSELF’ THE SINGLE – WATCH VIDEO HERE

FEATURING ON THE SMASH HIT SINGLE ‘HOME’ WITH MACHINE GUN KELLY & BEBE REXHA    

FEATURING ON EMINEM’S NEW ALBUM ‘REVIVAL’

Multi-platinum selling three-piece X Ambassadors have announced their UK and European headline tour in March 2018. The nine-date run will be kicking off at London’s Electric Brixton on March 19th.

The tour comes ahead of their eagerly anticipated new album, co-written with American multi-platinum selling songwriter, producer and musician Scott Harris (Shawn Mendes, Chainsmokers) and due for release in Spring 2018.

The album’s lead single ‘Ahead Of Myself’ was released this summer to great acclaim, and the official video has clocked up over 3 million views on YouTube. The band also sold out their headline show at London’s ULU, and pulled in one of the biggest crowds on the Radio 1 stage at Reading and Leeds Festival.

2015 saw the launch of the US trio onto the music scene across the globe. Their debut album VHS spawned the breakthrough platinum selling #1 Alternative radio track ‘Renegades’ and hits ‘Unsteady’ and ‘Jungle’ and debuted at #7 on the Billboard Top 200 chart. VHS has since been gold certified and saw the band embark on a nearly two-year touring odyssey, winning over fans around the world.

X Ambassadors are currently tearing up the US charts with ‘Home’ a collaboration with Machine Gun Kelly and Bebe Rexha, which features on the soundtrack to the new Will Smith Netflix movie ‘Bright’. The track currently holds the #3 spot on Spotify’s Today’s Top Hits – with over 18 million streams – and is at #10 on US iTunes.

The band also feature on the track ‘Bad Husband’ on Eminem’s brand-new album Revival which will be released this Friday (Dec 15th).

They have collaborated with a number of prolific artists such as Tom Morello on the track ‘Collider’, Elle King, A$AP Ferg, Wiz Khalifa, Eminem and labelmates Imagine Dragons and have earlier this year released music for the trailer for the upcoming Tom Cruise film American Made, Transformers: The Last Knight, and the inspirational track ‘Hoping’, which came about following the US presidential election and saw proceeds got to the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), which is fighting Donald Trump’s immigration ban.

US trio X Ambassadors return with a brand new single ‘Ahead Of Myself’, which is the lead track from their upcoming second album.

Released today, ‘Ahead Of Myself’ was co-written with American multi-platinum selling songwriter, producer, and musician Scott Harris (Shawn Mendes, Chainsmokers) and was added straight onto Spotify’s UK and Global New Music Playlists as well as Deezer and Amazon’s Brand New Music UK playlists.

‘Ahead Of Myself’ is the first taste of their new album, the follow up to the critically acclaimed, gold-certified debut album VHS, which featured the two multi-platinum hits ‘Renegades’ and ‘Unsteady’.

The success of VHS saw X Ambassadors venture out on a near two-year touring odyssey, winning over fans around the world and performing at the likes of Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, Life is Beautiful, Shaky Knees festivals and many more.

The three-piece, formed of brothers Sam and Casey Harris and college friend Adam Levin, have collaborated with a number of top names such as Tom Morello, Elle King, A$AP Ferg, Wiz Khalifa, Eminem and label mates Imagine Dragons.

Earlier this year they gave fans a taste of their current sonic direction with the release of ‘The Devil You Know’, which featured in a trailer for the upcoming Tom Cruise film American Made, ‘Torches’ which was heard in Transformers: The Last Knight, and the inspirational ‘Hoping’, which came about following the US presidential election.

X Ambassadors will be playing the Radio 1/NME stage at this year’s Reading and Leeds Festival before headlining a show at London’s ULU on August 29th.
