RAQ Announces 28 Show U.S. Tour

RAQ, the electrifying rock quartet from Burlington, VT, will embark on their fourth national tour in just two years this spring. Formed in just 2001, RAQ is doing what most young bands only dream about and have announced the first twenty-eight dates of a national tour that takes them from the Stone Church in New Hampshire to the famous Whiskey A-Go-Go in West Hollywood with all major cities in-between and back to New England with a two night stand at the Higher Ground in Burlington, VT on April 8th & 9th.

Self-described as “aggressive improvisational rock” RAQ’s music is full of precise hooks and floating improvisation. Relix Magazine says, “RAQ has the ability to captivate an audience, dropping jaws with hyperkinetic improvisational splendor.”

They have already been invited to perform at many of North America’s highest profile events including Tennessee’s Bonnaroo Music Festival, California’s High Sierra Music Festival, Florida’s Langerado Music Festival, New York’s moe-down, Massachusetts’s Berkshire Mountain Music Festival, and Vermont’s Garden of Eden festival. The band has appeared at the most prestigious venues along the way such as the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco

and the famed Knitting Factory in New York City. Highlights of this tour include headlining shows in NYC, Chicago, Boulder, Los Angeles, and a support slot in Atlanta with MOE at The Tabernacle on March 4th.

This is only the first leg of the spring tour and additional dates are expected to be added to this leg too. Please go to www.raqmusic.com for updates.
