The Band Camino Announces New EP ‘Bruises,’ Summer Tour Dates

The Band Camino had a jam-packed 2023, complete with their pensive sophomore album, The Dark, and non-stop touring worldwide. But they’re not slowing down yet.


The trio — Jeffery Jordan, Spencer Stewart and Garrison Burgess — announced exclusively via Billboard on Monday (May 13) that they’re unveiling a brand new EP, Bruises, on May 17. “Fresh starts are hard to come by when you’ve been a band for nine years and almost all of your 20s, but this release truly feels like one,” the band tells Billboard in a statement. “Honestly, for a while, it felt like we were chasing something. Having a fan base and any amount of success puts this pressure on your art and it’s easy to start chasing and predicting what you think people are going to like. In this next chapter, we’ve decided we aren’t chasing anything at all – just expressing. Making something you connect with is far more fulfilling, and the only reason we found our footing as a band in the first place. Just know we feel these songs in our bones and we have a feeling someone out there will too.”

The statement continues, “Making these songs and this EP brought us together in a way we haven’t felt in a long time, honestly. We took the process back to the place we started as a band and wrote and arranged the songs in a live rehearsal setting to truly create them together with instruments in our hands. Making music in 2024 has mostly turned into sitting in front of a computer, so we really put in effort to make music with no computers in sight until it was time to hit the studio with a fully-fleshed out arrangement. We tracked everything live as a band and left the takes as raw as we could. Our live show has always been what we’re most proud of, so we really just wanted to capture that in these recordings and not overcomplicate or overproduce anything. A touch more humanness, imperfectly perfect.”

With so much emphasis on sharing the upcoming tracks directly with their fans, The Band Camino doubled down on the excitement by announcing an accompanying summer tour, with “Not The 1975” star Knox as the supporting act.

The month-long run will kick off on July 8 in Seattle, Wash., before hitting cities like Sacramento, Calif.; Phoenix, Ariz.; Austin, Texas; Orlando, Fla. and more before wrapping up on August 3 in Charlotte, North Carolina.
