d4vd will play:
17 – White Oak Music Hall (upstairs), Houston, TX
21 – The Echo, Los Angeles, CA
28 – The Lower Third, London, UK

Last year’s ‘Romantic Homicide’ landed at Number 33 on the US Billboard Hot 100, and Number 22 on the UK Singles Chart.
During an interview with NME in September 2022, d4vd spoke about the response to the track and why he thinks it connected with so many people.
“I’ve had small moments like this before with songs on SoundCloud, but to have a song take off the way it did and have it be as natural as it did without me pushing it in somebody’s face for a straight week is actually amazing,” he said.
“And the fact that people resonated with the music… it kind of promoted itself.”
d4vd continued: “I think it’s so simple. [The song] is relatable in a way; it’s not crazy with the vocals, it only has two layers of background vocals for the harmonisation.
“It’s just a track that you don’t have to think too much about to listen to, you can easily connect to what’s being said because I’m not over-saturating the sound, and it’s just the feeling that anybody could have made that song.”
