"Pure Class" writes Mojo Magazine in its rave of The Proclaimers distinctive sound which lies squarely within a musical netherworld where pop, folk, new wave and punk collide and a songcraft showcasing their "unimpaired facility for nailing the crossroads moments in ordinary lives." The Proclaimers have charmed a growing global fan base almost overnight with their distinctive Scottish brogue and impeccable melodic instincts.  The Proclaimers are returning to the U.S. in April 2013 for a special series of acoustic shows.  Fellow 429 Records recording artist JP (whose 429 debut album is also set for release April 9th ) is confirmed to open on all of the dates which begin in Brooklyn, NY on April 11th.  "LIKE COMEDY" will be available on 429 Records on April 9th.

The Proclaimers have carved out a niche for themselves in the netherworld where pop, folk, new wave and punk collide. In the process they have enjoyed Gold and Platinum singles and albums in UK, USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.

Craig & Charlie commented, "We very much look forward to touring the USA again and doing acoustic versions of some of the old and new songs and to seeing older and newer fans at the shows."

The Proclaimers have spent the last few months of 2012 touring extensively with their full band with 57 shows across the UK performing to over 200,000 fans including appearances at V-Fest in England and three shows at the Singapore Grand Prix.
