Rising pop/rock artist Leah Kate announces that she will be joining Chase Atlantic on their COLD NIGHTS North America Summer Tour. Kicking off on July 6 in San Francisco and wrapping up on August 20 in Leah’s hometown of Los Angeles, the 28-city tour will be Leah’s first time ever touring North America. Full routing is listed below. Tickets go on sale this Friday, May 6th at 10am EST HERE.
The announcement arrives on the heels of her signing to Los Angeles-based independent record label 10K Projects/ MDDN. The newcomer is currently enjoying a viral hit with the feisty, endlessly quotable “10 Things I Hate About You,” which has amassed more than 20 million global streams since its release a few weeks ago. Listen to it HERE.
With its acerbic lyrics and deeply relatable subject matter, “10 Things I Hate About You” is a breakup anthem for the ages. “Ten, you’re selfish/nine, you’re jaded,” Leah Kate begins the catchy chorus. “Eight, the dumbest guy I dated.” It turns out the song is completely autobiographical. “I really needed to get over this guy who had been f***ing with my head for the longest time,” she says. “At one point I decided to list everything I hated about him to help me move the f*** on.” “10 Things I Hate About You” took off when the singer/songwriter posted a snippet on TikTok. The full song hit DSPs days later, amassing more than 4 million streams in its first two weeks.
Since then, “10 Things I Hate About You” has exploded around the world. The pop/rock anthem, which is gaining traction at Top 40 radio, holds a spot on both Spotify’s Global and US Top 200 charts, and has cracked the Top 15 and Top 5 on Global and US Viral 50 charts respectively. It also holds major playlist coups including the Top 10 on Pop Rising, as well as placements in Viral Hits, Teen Beats and Pop Sauce. Meanwhile, on TikTok the song has been used in over 320K video creations and reached #3 on TikTok Top US Tracks. Leah Kate is also currently featured as a Trending Artist on the Rise on YouTube.
With her support slot on Madison Beer’s Life Support tour wrapping up last week, the budding hitmaker prepares to bring her live set stateside. On May 21, Leah Kate will take the stage at Hangout Music Festival in Gulf Shores, AL.
With “10 Things I Hate About You” storming up the charts and new music on the horizon, Leah Kate is destined to be one of the breakout artists of 2022.
