Spending most of the last year touring and on the festival circuit, Dallas, TX indie-rock band Valise has been honing their craft, headlining shows and playing alongside bands such as Death Cab for Cutie, Local Natives, Dawes, Family of the Year, and Copeland. Today, Valise is thrilled to announce they will be joining Macy Gray as direct support for her headlining US tour. Tickets and info available at

"Macy Gray may not be the first artist people think of when considering who Valise would tour with, and I think that's exactly what we loved about it.  It gets old, going to shows where you're basically watching the same band three or four times.  We wanted to shake things up a bit, but still play alongside somebody we respected, and that's Macy.  Her voice is truly one of a kind, and she's kept her style fresh and constantly evolving over the past fifteen years.  That's something every artist should aspire to, and we're excited to show everybody what we have planned for these shows" - Vince Penick, Valise

Valise is an indie-rock quartet from Dallas, TX. Vince Penick, Jared Travis, Casey Newton, and Ricky Johnson met in school, but quickly ditched their studies to focus on making music together. In Spring 2015 they released their debut album Young Bloomer and followed it with a relentless touring schedule. After supporting Copeland for their spring headline dates and a nationwide headlining tour this summer, Valise will be on the road this fall starting with  a showcase at this year's CMJ Music Marathon as well as a slew of headlining dates before hitting the road with Macy Gray.

The music video for "Charlie Gray," Valise's most recent single off their album Young Bloomer can be seen here.  Follow Valise on social media to keep updated on their tour and new releases.
