  We’ve been asked. We’ve been emailed. We’ve been stalked. We’ve even been Twitter-bombed. And don’t get us wrong – it’s been a hoot – but finally we can announce the news y’all have been hounding us for: Owl City will support Cobra Starship at all Australian dates on their forthcoming Hot Mess tour!

Owl City – the musical manifest of Adam Young – is a bona fide 21st Century recording artist.

Gaining notoriety via his MySpace profile, Adam’s fan base gathered by word of mouth as more and more discovered his self-released records Maybe I’m Dreaming and Of June.

Owl City’s breakthrough came in 2009 after Universal Republic extended an invitation to join their stable, proving the buzz too loud to ignore. Owl City’s major label debut Ocean Eyes proved Universal Republic’s leap of faith well founded, debuting at an impressive #27 on the Billboard chart.

A dreamy soundscape of youthful lust, lessons and indecision, Ocean Eyes has seen Owl City’s fan base swell while collecting a wealth of positive press along the way:

“Young has a good chance at becoming a worthy replacement for the Postal Service” – Alternative Press

“The third album from MySpace phenom Owl City, a.k.a., Adam Young, is pristine pop electronica: synths and strings meld seamlessly into dreamy, summery atmospherics” – Spin

“…such stargazing naïveté seems a welcome change given the times we live in…” – PopMatters

“undeniably catchy” – AbsolutePunk.net

Supporting Cobra Starship’s Australian Hot Mess tour will see Owl City Down Under for the first time, offering the perfect opportunity for a proper introduction to our fine folk. With tickets already on sale and selling fast, there’s no doubt the addition of Owl City will speed up the inevitable: these shows will sell out. Ensure you secure your tickets now.
