The Elwins: Tour with Dashboard Confessional

Toronto-based pop rockstars, The Elwins will be performing as direct support on the upcoming Dashboard Confessional Canadian run. The tour kicks off in Vancouver, BC on February 21, and includes 2 dates in Toronto at Danforth Music Hall before it wraps up on March 13 in Oshawa, ON.

Says the band about the upcoming tour, “A few years ago we played a show with Dashboard Confessional in New Jersey at a beer fest in a giant industrial space. We got the chance to meet Chris (Carrabba) afterwards and he was extremely nice and down to earth. Shortly afterwards, him and Frankie were texting about basketball #bestbuds. We can’t wait to kick off this tour!”

The Elwins – singer/guitarist Matt Sweeney, drummer Travis Stokl, guitarist/keyboardist Feurd, and bassist/singer Francesco Figliomeni – came together in 2006 near Newmarket, about an hour north of Toronto. After touring extensively behind 2012’s And I Thank You and 2015’s Play for Keeps, the four members developed a natural chemistry, which continues to propel (and challenge) their collaborative spirit on Beauty Community. Play For Keeps notably helped garner the band a 2016 JUNO nomination for Breakthrough Group of the Year with its first single, “So Down Low”, which amassed over 25 million audience impressions, peaked at #12 Alternative Rock, and was featured in a Canada-wide advertising campaign for Fido.
