Big Freedia announces fall US tour ahead of new album Pressing Onward

Watching New Orleans bounce rap ambassador Big Freedia on stage has always been an exhilarating experience, but now her live shows are about to get even better. The Queen of Bounce has announced that she will be joined by a live backing band for her upcoming fall tour. Tank & The Bangas will open all 10 dates for Freedia and then stick around during her performance. The artist said that “With
their Jazz, rock and spoken word inspired performances, they are an amazing compliment [sic] to my show.”

Big Freedia is also set to release an album, Pressing Onward, early next year. It will be the musician’s second full-length LP (not including mixtapes). Back in August, she premiered a video for “Drop,” written in collaboration with Diplo and DJ Snake, and featured on the Entourage movie soundtrack. Watch it below:
