Gus Dapperton’s debut album Where Polly People Go To Read came out in April on AWAL Recordings, and today Gus announces that he will be heading out on a U.S. tour starting in late September. Before the U.S. dates, he will be touring for the fourth time in Europe and afterwards will be touring for the very first time in Asia and Australia. Gus recently played a sold out show in London, on which Bristol In Stereo noted "you can’t deny the energy the crowd and Dapperton possess together.

On Where Polly People Go To Read, the Warwick, NY singer, songwriter, and vibe maestro
invites you to take up residence deep inside of his subconscious as embodied by these ten
tracks.

“The album is basically what I see inside of my head, and it’s the dimension you’re entering
when you hear it,” he explains. “It’s very personal and honest to me. There are a few emotional
roller coasters. I’ve come to terms with reality and the inconveniences inherent in how I see
things. Being able to express myself however I want, regardless of the resulting good or bad,
makes me feel content and real.”

He also unpresumptuous-ly inched towards making such a statement since his emergence in
2016. A series of anthems a la “Prune, You Talk Funny,” “I’m Just Snacking,” and “Moodna,
Once With Grace” generated tens of millions of streams and views as he hovered around 1
million monthly listeners on Spotify and dropped a pair of EPs—Yellow and Such [2017] and
You Think You’re a Comic! [2018]. Acclaimed by Vogue, The Fader, The New York Times, I-D,
Pigeons & Planes, and Nylon and pegged among “10 Artists to Watch in 2019” by High
Snobiety, he embarked on a globe-trotting journey that placed him in front of sold out audiences
around the world. In the midst of such madness, he pieced together Where Polly People Go To
Read back in his parents’ home. At the time, the record reflected the current ups and downs of
his personal life.

“It captures the whole last year of my life,” he goes on. “The first four songs are the demise of a
relationship and heartbreak. By the time the fifth song starts, it’s experiencing love once more. It
ends on this harsh reality. It was happening presently in my life, so each song was written in
chronological order. I fell out of an unhealthy relationship and then fell in love again. It was
super magical when it was all brand new. However, I eventually embraced the sad truth love is
not so easy in general for anyone.”
