Capitol Records new signing Graffiti6 has announced a string of East Coast dates which have been added to their current summer trek starting August 1st in Boston, MA at the Brighton Music Academy.
The new dates also include a stop at the Escape To New York Festival in Southampton, NY on August 6th.
This month, Graffiti6 embarked their first West Coast tour which began with a performance at the Los Angeles Hammer Museum Summer Concert Series presented by KCRW on July 7th.
The trip also included stops for intimate sessions on KEXP and KCRW's Morning Becomes Eclectic - a clip of "Stare Into The Sun" from that session can be seen here on BandWeblogs.com.

They played a 3-day residency at Las Vegas hot spot Cosmopolitan Hotel and opened for Fitz and the Tantrums in Los Angeles on July 22nd at the Henry Fonda Music Box Theater before heading east.
UK transplant, Graffiti6 is a collaboration between singer-songwriter Jamie Scott and songwriter-producer TommyD, both London-born multi-instrumentalists who began making music together in 2009 and decided to call the resulting collaboration Graffiti6.
They released their first EP in the U.S. last month.
The Annie You Save Me EP features two remixes of the track, plus stripped down acoustic versions of two other songs, including the live favorite, and first radio single "Free," as well as a cover of Blackstreet's classic "No Diggity."
A DR. ROSEN remix of "Annie You Save Me" is available as a free download on the band's website graffiti6.com, while a 12" vinyl version of "Annie You Save Me" featuring remixes by DR. ROSEN and Lars Stalfors will be released on July 27th.
Another Graffiti6 track "Stone In My Heart" is currently available for sale at all digital retailers.
Annie You Save Me is the first U.S. commercial EP from Graffiti6's upcoming US album release Colours - a genre-defying blend of pop, psychedelia, R&B, and British Northern Soul that fully capitalizes on the soaring uplift of Jamie Scott's emotionally transparent voice and gift for melody and TommyD's irresistible rhythms and inventive production.
The songs, which London's Guardian newspaper called "latter-day psych-soul nuggets, all phased vocals and sunshine melodies given the warp factor," have already been heard on such TV shows as Grey's Anatomy, Covert Affairs, CSI: NY, One Tree Hill, and in the new MTV series Teen Wolf.
MTV has also featured Graffiti6 in its Freshmen 5, Artist to Watch, and Push campaigns.
