Estelle Joins Gym Class Heroes and The Roots For Fall Tour

R&B sensation Estelle has joined Gym Class Heroes and The Roots for a 20-date North American Tour slated to kick off this fall. Fresh off the success of her hit single “American Boy” and a coveted Mercury Prize nomination, R&B star Estelle joins Gym Class Heroes, who will headline the junket in support of their highly anticipated fourth album, “The Quilt” on September 9th. “The Quilt” is highlighted by the first single, “Cookie Jar.” Produced by The-Dream (Rihanna, Usher, Chris Brown), the track is currently ascending the charts at multi-format radio outlets nationwide, including CHR/Top 40, Urban, and Rhythmic. “Cookie Jar” is available now at all digital retailers. The track’s companion video — directed by Dale “Rage” Resteghini (Lil Wayne, Jim Jones, The Game) — will have its television premiere on MTV’s new “FNMTV” on August 15th at 8 PM. Acclaimed for their unique approach to alternative hip-hop, Gym Class Heroes became an international sensation in 2007 with their #1 blockbuster hit, “Cupid’s Chokehold/Breakfast In America.” The North American leg of the tour will begin on October 3rd at Baltimore’s Rams Head Live! and then traverse the continent through a November 1st finale at Albany, New York’s Washington Avenue Armory (see below itinerary).
