Welsh Psych-Rockers CVC have announced their first ever North American tour with two dates each in New York, Toronto, Chicago, and at Bonnaroo Festival in Tennessee. While American audiences will finally get a chance to see the band live this summer, they can get a taste of the show with a live performance video of “Sophie” from their latest album, Get Real.

CVC, or Church Village Collective in full, named their band after the Welsh town they come from. The six-piece musical collective are influenced by Snoop Dogg, Crosby, Stills & Nash, Super Furry Animals and Red Hot Chili Peppers and are comprised of singer Francesco Orsi, bassist Ben Thorne, drummer Tom Fry, keyboardist Daniel “Nanial” Jones and singing guitarists David Bassey and Elliot Bradfield. 

CVC’s message is a universal one: “Peace and love and good times, stay real, stay true and that’s it.”

Their debut album Get Real, produced by the band and mixed by Ross Orton (Arctic Monkeys), was released at the start of 2023, a year in which they will be touring extensively.
