Event Description:

X Ambassadors' debut album, VHS, reflected on the events that shaped lead vocalist and lyricist Sam Harris and his older brother, keyboardist Casey Harris' life growing up in Ithaca, NY. The gold-certified album, which Rolling Stone called "bombastic rock that's as stomping as it is diaristic, leavened by big-tent pop hooks and a hint of hip-hop swagger," debuted at No. 7 on Billboard's Top 200 chart and spawned the platinum-selling "Renegades," which spent 12 consecutive weeks at No. 1 on the Alternative chart, and the double-platinum "Unsteady."  The success of VHS sent X Ambassadors on a nearly two-year touring odyssey that found them winning over fans around the world and performing at the Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo,  among other festivals, and establishing themselves as a world-class rock band.  X Ambassadors recently released the impassioned "Ahead of Myself," the first single off their forthcoming sophomore set.  X Ambassadors returned to Ithaca this fall to co-headline their inaugural Cayuga Sound Festival with The Roots, giving back to the community that nurtured their talent.
