With a mix of melody and chaos Cologne’s The Tourist carved their very own niche in the fields of emo, indie and hardcore.
Founded in 2008, the band released three Extended Plays and one full-length record so far and played numerous shows and tours in different european countries.
With the completion of their second album, Love Will Find You, The Tourist dug itself even deeper into the soil they’ve been taken care off for such a long time already. Drawing inspiration from different personal favorite artists and bands, from Poison The Well to Glassjaw, Sunny Day Real Estate to On The Might Of Princess, from Hum to Aereogramme back to PJ Harvey and Leonard Cohen, they managed to create an independent, multifarious sound, heavy and abrasive, but sweet and beautiful at the same time.
The Tourist is extremely proud to be part of and working together with the White Russian Records family for the release of Love Will Find You, a result of years and years of friendship, reaching cross-boarder and back.
The record contains 12 songs and is released as a 12 inch LP.
