Daughtry announce one-off Roundhouse date (2014)
Story by Jack Foley
MULTI-platinum recording artist Daughtry are thrilled to bring their electrifying live show back to the UK later this year for a one-off show at London Roundhouse on Sunday, October 12, 2014.
The gig follows a sold out tour in March and the release of their new album, Baptized.
And to celebrate they have released the anthemic track Battleships through all download platforms.
Daughtry’s UK tour earlier this year included two dates at O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire, which sold out immediately. The new London show follows a massive tour across the US and is preceded by a European run of shows, including dates in Germany and Sweden.
Baptized is their fourth full-length studio album and signals a rebirth for Chris and the band. Motivated by intensely creative writing sessions with the likes of Martin Johnson [Boys Like Girls], Sam Hollander [Gym Class Heroes, Coheed and Cambria] and Claude Kelly [Bruno Mars, Whitney Houston], the singer, songwriter and musician quickly discovered the direction of its latest body of work.
The single Battleships is a song co-written by Chris Daughtry for his band’s fourth studio album, Baptized. The song is a pop rock power ballad that describes a tempestuous, conflict-riddled relationship wherein the narrator and his significant other “love like battleships”.
Tickets for the Roundhouse date, on Sunday, October 12, 2014, cost £26 and are on sale now.
