For much of the past few years, Alejandro Aranda, aka Scarypoolparty, has lived in near- constant motion, barely pausing to catch his breath as he rocketed from playing bars and backyards to sold-out headline tours and massive festival stages. And while the widespread critical acclaim and tens of millions of streams he’s racked up along the way would seem to suggest that Aranda thrives on the chaos of the road, this past year at home has seen immense buildout. On August 27th, Scarypoolparty released his ambitious sophomore album, The Act of Forgiveness. The 21-track double album – featuring twelve songs with Emmy Award and Tony Award-winning composer Rob Mathes’ orchestral arrangements – further proves Scarypoolparty is a true “renaissance artist” (Alternative Press).
This fall, Scarypoolparty joins X Ambassadors as direct support on their The Beautiful Liar tour, kicking off October 15th. Fresh off his ‘The Acoustic Tour’ in June, Scarypoolparty heads to the festival circuit for a performance at Outside Lands.
