EKKSTACY shares “chicago,” the final single taken from his self-titled new album out January 19th. The track is an ode to its namesake city with a pop-punk opening riff and a fiery guitar solo that bookend a somber reflection of the dissociative nature of being on tour and longing to stay in one place for more than a few days. Previous album singles include “bella” and “problems” featuring Trippie Redd.

Following the album’s release, EKKSTACY will take his frenetic live show on an extended North American and European tour with Alex Sucks beginning in Toronto in February. The tour will consist of a first leg across the east coast and south before embarking to Europe for a set of dates including sold out shows in Frankfurt, Hamburg, Berlin and Cologne before returning to the US in May for the second leg of the tour on the west coast.

EKKSTACY first emerged onto the scene with NEGATIVE. The single from that debut project “i walk this earth all by myself”. Recorded with frequent collaborators Mangetsu and Apob between long stints on tour and festival plays over the course of the last two years, it’s an autobiographical reflection on his life as a musician and the highs and lows of the solitude that comes with creating music and touring. He’s continued to hone that sound alongside Chris Coady (Beach House, Future Islands, The Drums, etc), who mixed his new self-titled LP and his previous album Misery.
