Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings Announce Extensive U.S. Tour

Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings are pleased to announce an extensive US Tour highlighted by two record release parties at the legendary Apollo Theater in New York City in support of their upcoming release, I Learned the Hard Way.

 Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings are already well known as one of the most exciting acts in the nation for both their explosive live shows and their prolific output of gritty studio recordings. On April 6th, 2010 the band will release I Learned the Hard Way, their fourth full-length on Brooklyns independent Daptone Records. The record marks a bold step forward for a band who almost singlehandedly stewarded todays return of soul music to its more traditional sound.

 From the lush Philly-Soul fanfare that ushers in The Game Gets Old at the top of the record, to the stripped down Sam Cooke-style Mama Dont Like My Man at the tail, the Dap-Kings dance seamlessly through both the most crafted and simple arrangements with subtlety and discipline.  I Learned the Hard Way is the Daptone Sound at its finest.
