Flagship will head out on tour supporting In The Valley Below.  The tour starts July 13th in Ferndale, Michigan and wraps up in Boston on August 22nd.  The tour will make stops in Toronto, Chicago, Denver, San Francisco, LA, Austin, NYC and much more!

 

Flagship released their latest album, The Electric Man in March this year. The album, which was produced by Beck’s longtime drummer Joey Waronker (Brandon Flowers, Yeasayer, Atoms for Peace, Air), finds singer/guitarist Drake Margolnick and drummer Michael Finster taking listeners on a journey from light into darkness and back again.

 

The Electric Man marks the first full-length Flagship release as a duo.

 

The band’s first full-length album came out when they were a full band featuring the aforementioned Grant Harding (keys), along with Matthew Padgett (guitar) and Chris Comfort (bass). When Harding and Comfort decided to leave the band, Margolnick and Finster made the courageous decision to become a duo and released their first EP, Faded, in 2015, featuring “I Want You,” which reached No. 20 on Hype Machine.

 

Becoming a duo opened up new avenues of production and collaboration that made the recording process not just easier, but resulted in their most musically adventurous release to date. “It’s just easier being a duo,” admits Finster. “We both play several instruments and it allowed for more creative flexibility. It also opened more doors because were able to use more technology and add electronic stuff, like different synths and vibraphone and samples, which gave it more texture and layers.”
