X Ambassadors made their full-length debut with VHS, a 2015 release that saw the band transition from Ithaca alt-rockers and Brooklyn-indie-scene outsiders to Billboard stalwarts. Now certified platinum, VHS provided an intimate look at Sam Nelson Harris and his brother Casey Harris’s youth, delivering the genre-defying hits “Unsteady” and “Renegades” and leading to a three-year global touring odyssey as well as a string of high-profile festival performances.
VHS was followed by X Ambassadors’ 2019 sophomore album ORION, which they supported with an extensive headline tour of the U.S. A project inspired by ’60s and ’70s soul and R&B, the band’s Belong EP arrived in March 2020. The third full-length from X Ambassadors—The Beautiful Liar is the latest and most ambitious outcome of the band’s hyper-creative tendencies. Released in 2021, the band pays homage to those beloved fictions of their childhood through lead singles, “My Own Monster” and “Okay”. An additional leg of The Beautiful Liar Tour will commence in Summer 2022 in North America and will extend throughout the UK for Fall 2022.
