HANSON’s most ambitious musical project to date features songs spanning the band’s career, including some of their best known material (“MmmBop”, “Where’s The Love”, “This Time Around” and more) alongside brand new or never-released-to-the-public songs (“Reaching For The Sky”, “Battle Cry”, “Breaktown”, “No Rest For The Weary” and more) which tell a story of aspiration, despair, fortitude and ultimately a return to optimism.
The Tour brings String Theory to the stage with many leading symphonies at some of the most iconic venues, among them the National Symphony Orchestra at the Filene Center at Wolftrap and the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra at Heinz Hall, already announced earlier this year and on sale now. New dates include Los Angeles at The Greek Theatre, New York at the Beacon Theatre and Chicago at the Chicago Theatre, on sale July 27th. US and Canada dates continue throughout the Spring of 2019, with international dates to be announced later this month taking the tour to Europe, Australia, and more in Spring 2019.
The album features brand new and rearranged recordings with full symphonic orchestration, and will be available in digital and physical formats, with special content and packages available via the band’s official website www.Hanson.net. The band recordings were produced by HANSON and mixed by Grammy winning Producer and Engineer Jim Scott (Red Hot Chili Peppers, Tom Petty, Wilco, Sting). The symphonic composition was recorded in Prague, lead by arranger David Campbell. New HANSON recordings were engineered by Craig Alvin (Kacey Musgraves) with additional production and engineering credits including past collaborators of the band, Danny Kortchmar (Don Henley, Billy Joel, James Taylor), Steve Churchyard (The Eagles, Train, Faith Hill, Taylor Swift) and CJ Eiriksson (U2, Matchbox Twenty, Phish).
String Theory is the next frontier for HANSON, telling a story of aspiration and fortitude against the odds. The music resonates with authenticity, coming from a group whose signature is never to chase trends, but instead to stay focused on their melodic craftsmanship, establishing themselves as one of the few artists of their generation able to continually reinvent and reimagine their music, which has helped them to maintain an active global fanbase over 25 years after their founding.
