Dynamic Roots band Fruition has announced a fall tour in support of the group's critically album Labor of Love (released April 22nd via Randm Records).

With the release of Labor of Love, Fruition has received a wide variety of support, from Paste, Relix, Elmore, SiriusXM's JamOn and The Oregonian, to Live For Live Music who said,
"Fruition have reached a new level with this album…they’ve given the world a wonderful example of what dedication and soul can accomplish when people work together." Check out the band's new live clip of "The Meaning" shot in Portland before they left for tour below.
Fruition's unique blend of roots-rock, bluegrass and jamgrass picking with soul sensibilities formed organically on the streets of Portland. The group began simply as three friends busking but they quickly gained attention with their must-see engaging performances and impromptu musicality. As the band took on a road warrior mentality as they began touring relentlessly, captivating audiences with their string-fused melodic songs. The band's first full-length album debuted at #11 on Soundscan's Bluegrass Chart while landing them performances at major festivals, including Bonnaroo and Telluride Bluegrass where Rolling Stone reviewed their performance, noting it as a set of "raucous originals filled with heartfelt lyrics and stadium-worthy energy."

Though the stages continue to become bigger with audiences growing in size, Fruition remains true and humble to their roots. They recently were the topic of discussion in the band's hometown paper The Oregonian (view the feature HERE) and performed onOregon Public Broadcasting (view the live performances HERE).

Labor of Love displays Fruition achieving a progressive sound that showcases the band's ability to feel free in songcraft exploration. The result is an album that Sound & Silencecalls "...mature, bold and captivating..."
