Kevin Abstract touring behind ‘American Boyfriend’ in 2017

Kevin Abstract

Rapper/singer Kevin Abstract is touring in 2017 in support of American Boyfriend: A Suburban Love, which he dropped in late November. The album got some year-end list love, including being named the tenth best album of the year by Vulture, whose Craig Jenkins writes:

Thirteen songs into his new album American Boyfriend: A Suburban Love Story, Texas upstart Kevin Abstract cuts the shit and lets it all out: “My best friend’s racist, my mother’s homophobic / I’m stuck in the closet, I’m so claustrophobic,” he deadpans on “Miserable America.” Sometimes laying all your life’s incongruities in a row is the only way to sort through them, and American Boyfriend is a powerful trip through the sometimes prickly intersections of black masculinity, hip-hop culture, and LGBTQ identity. If that sounds conflicted, the music isn’t. These songs skip through alt-rock, rap, R&B, blues, synth-pop, and shoegaze like a buddy skimming radio stations on a road trip.

The tour hits NYC on March 10 at The Studio at Webster Hall with Bearface opening. Tickets for that show are on sale now.

All dates are listed on the flyer below, along with a stream of American Boyfriend.
