Stockholm Syndrome to play the Paradise Rock Club

, Staff

Stockholm Syndrome have released dates for a late summer tour in continued support of their latest album, Apollo. The Georgia-based rockers will hit Boston’s Paradise Rock Club for a performance on Friday, August 12. Tickets are available through Ticketmaster for $18. Ivan Neville’s Dumpstaphunk and The Cringe will open the show.

Apollo, Stockholm Syndrome’s sophomore release, was released in February through the band’s label Response Records. Its release cemented Stockholm Syndrome’s identity as a band rather than a simple side project between the Jackmormons’ singer-songwriter Jerry Joseph and bassist Dave Schools of Widespread Panic, who released their first album Holy Happy Hour in 2004. The group also features guitarist Eric McFadden, keyboardist Danny Louis and drummer Wally Ingram. Dave Schools produced the album which was recorded in a converted chicken coop in Cotati, California with additional recording at Compass Point Studios in Nassau.

“We spend a lot of time saying we’re not a side project, we’re a band,” explained Joseph in a press release. “So it needs to sound like that. And I think it does. There’s a cohesiveness to this record that really sounds like a band.”

“It’s very song-oriented, very melody-oriented,” added Schools. “There’s some heaviness to it, and some feel to it as well. It’s a rock band, really.”
