The debut album from X Ambassadors, titled VHS, arrives in stores on Tuesday (June 30th). The disc features the chart-topping Modern Rock single “Renegades,” which started its climb to success with an appearance in a commercial for the Jeep Renegade. The Ithaca, New York-based act was aided in the studio by Imagine Dragons frontman Dan Reynolds, who recommended to his label that the company sign the group.
The recently released video for “Renegades” features inspirational scenes of people with disabilities doing remarkable things, making it all the more personal to the band since keyboard playerCasey Harris has been blind since birth.
The band will kick off a fall U.S. headlining tour on October 22nd at Bowery Ballroom in New York City, but will spent the summer on the road as well sharing gigs with acts like Milky Chance and Panic! At The Disco.
