Sherwood Launces U.S. Headlining Tour February 17th in Los Angeles

Sherwood, purveyors of feel good California rock, will be
hitting the road launching a U.S. headlining tour in support of its most
recent effort QU. The tour kicks off February 17 in Los Angeles at the famed
Roxy Theater.

A Beach Boys-inspired power pop band hailing from San Luis Obispo,
California, Sherwood came together in 2002 while the band members were still
students at the local university. Now signed to Myspace Records, they’ve
released their debut Summer EP followed by two full length releases (Sing,
But Keep Going in 2005 and 2007’s A Different Light).

QU, released October 2009, is the band’s third full length and is arguably
Sherwood’s most mature and accessible yet, as its undeniable pop
sensibilities showcase a band coming into its own and fully realizing its
potential. Fans have noticed, as Sherwood’s MySpace page has logged an
astounding 18 million plays, making it the third largest MySpace profile in
the world.

Teaming up with producer Brad Wood ( Liz Phair, Smashing Pumpkins and Sunny
Day Real Estate) in a rented Oakland apartment for nine months, the band
amassed 85 songs that were eventually whittled down to 12 unabashed power
pop songs that made the final cut.

Sherwood’s brand new music video for the song “You Are” will world premiere
on MySpace Music on February 12. The video was directed by Long Beach
hipster Matt Wignall who also produced music and videos for Cold War Kids.
