NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 11/18/13 -- Fueled By Ramen recording group Young The Giant has unveiled details for their highly anticipated 2014 headlining tour. The North American trek will kick off on February 4th at the Ventura Theater in Ventura, California, and continue into April. Highlights include shows at such famed venues as Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles, Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, and a two-night stand at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City. Support comes from indie-pop band Cayucas and Atlantic recording artist Vance Joy on select dates (see attached itinerary). Tickets for the tour go on sale to the general public beginning at 10am local time on Friday, November 22nd. Presale tickets will be available beginning at 10am local time on Tuesday, November 19th to fans signed up for Young The Giant's mailing list via the band's official website youngthegiant.com.

The eagerly awaited tour celebrates the band's forthcoming second album "MIND OVER MATTER," set for release on January 21st, 2014. Produced by Grammy-nominee Justin Meldal-Johnsen (Beck, Nine Inch Nails, Paramore, M83), "MIND OVER MATTER" is heralded by the electrifying new single, "It's About Time," which has already begun its ascent on Alternative radio chart, climbing to the top 20 after scoring #1 most added honors in its first three weeks at the format. In addition, "It's About Time" became the #1 viral song worldwide on Spotify upon its release. The track's companion video -- directed by acclaimed visual artist David Vincent Wolf -- is streaming now at the band's official website youngthegiant.com.

Young The Giant is currently in the midst of a cross-country promotional tour and will close the year with headline appearances at a number of sold out radio concerts, including Denver, Colorado's 93.3 Not So Silent Night 2013 on December 1st.

Young The Giant has quickly established itself as one of the most exciting new bands to come out of Southern California in recent memory. Buoyed by hit singles including "Apartment" and RIAA-gold certified smashes "My Body" and "Cough Syrup," the quintet's 2010 full length debut "YOUNG THE GIANT" was a breakthrough success earning widespread acclaim from the likes of SPIN, The New Yorker, and Wall Street Journal who hailed the album as "a pop masterpiece with well-crafted songs, surprising arrangements and soaring vocal harmonies." Young The Giant spent much of 2011 and 2012 traveling the globe, with sold out headline tours, top-billing on MTVU's inaugural "Woodies Tour," and show-stopping appearances at such festivals as Bonnaroo, Austin City Limits, and Lollapalooza. A dynamic and distinctive live act, the band also made a range of high profile TV performances, spanning ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live!, and NBC's TODAY and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno to 2011's MTV Video Music Awards and their own edition of MTV Unplugged.

Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud? Further, serverless computing, cl...
