Jack Barakat’s WhoHurtYou Have Announced Their First-Ever Live Dates
Dark pop duo WhoHurtYou – compromised of All Time Low guitarist Jack Barakat, and Kevin Fisher – have announced their first-ever live dates.
Following the release of their two singles Nobody Wins and Wish We Never Met, the two-piece have now confirmed that they’ll be performing live for the first time ever on November 26 in LA at their own headline date, before joining The Maine as support on November 27 and 29. Tickets for the shows go on sale this Friday at 10am local time.
We recently asked the pair what their live shows would be like, to which Jack laughed, “Your guess is probably as good as ours!
“I’m excited to do it,” he continued. “Kevin is a great singer, so I know everything’s gonna sound great. The jokes will be there, but they’ll just be a little more dark and fucked up. This has been a cool new experience for Kevin because he’s been a songwriter for years, writing for 5 Seconds Of Summer and One Republic, all these big bands. But he’s been the other side of it to me, where you get to go out and sing the songs and change people’s lives, and he’s had almost a back-seat view of that, so it’s been cool for him to be on the front line.”
“Am I nervous about being out front for the first time? Not at all,” Kevin added. “I’m sure once we have a show booked and we’re about to go onstage I’ll look at Jack and be like, ‘Um, I’m scared!’ But no, I feel really good about it. I’m used to just giving songs to other people, but when we did all these songs, I was like, ‘This stuff is so personal to both of us, I don’t even feel right giving it to anybody else, because it just feels like us.’”
Excited to announce we’re gonna be playing a few special live shows. Come mend those broken hearts 💔❤️ Tickets on s… https://t.co/Rtx0tI8U0R— WhoHurtYou (@whohurtyoumusic) Wed Sep 04 17:04:58 +0000 2019
