The Veronicas to Hit the Road With Ashlee Simpson
Pop-rock sensations and identical twin sisters with an edgy, free-spirited sound, The Veronicas will hit the road with Ashlee Simpson to promote the duo's debut album "The Secret Life Of..." The tour with Simpson, which begins in Santa Barbara, Calif., June 5th will showcase hook-laden gems from the album including the hit single "4ever," which has sold over 100,000 digital downloads. "The Secret Life Of..." was released February 14th on Sire Records.
Twenty-one-year-olds Jess and Lisa Origliasso, who are originally from Brisbane and now live in Los Angeles, co-wrote eight of the 12 tracks on their debut album with veteran hitmakers Billy Steinberg (Madonna), Max Martin (Britney Spears), Clif Magness (Avril Lavigne), Dr. Luke (Kelly Clarkson), and Toby Gad (Enrique Iglesias).
Drawing from influences that include Roy Orbison and AC/DC, the girls have an infectious mixture of bold, bright rockin' pop anchored by their unique harmonic blend, which led Teen Vogue to call "The Secret Life Of..." "an album that manages to be both sweet and vicious, a killer combo." After their headlining show at New York City's Avalon in February, The New York Post touted the show saying, "This Aussie girl group is the real thing!"
