BYU-Idaho Radio · Austin Seaman Interview
The Utah-based band The National Parks is on its third national tour for its new album “8th Wonder.” After the performance on Thursday night, we had a conversation with tour manager Austin Seaman.
“Honestly it was like the perfect show to kick off tour,” Seaman said. “They’ve been playing in Rexburg for, you know, since as long as they’ve been playing, so, they have like a really strong fanbase here, and last night Rexburg like really showed up for them. So, it was great. They were super excited, and they’re stoked to play again tonight.”
Rexburg was the first leg in their tour which will continue on April 25 at the Hawthorne Theatre in Portland, Oregon, and keep going until May 13 at the Bluebird Theater in Denver, Colorado. Seaman says the band started as a pure folk band but has changed over the years.
“They’re really coming into their own sound. They’ve taken their folk roots and they just rock a little harder now,” he said.
Tickets for the 8th Wonder Tour are still on sale now, and the tour will continue after a summer break on September 23 in Salt Lake City to finally wrap up on October 28 in Louisville, Kentucky.
