    NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Oct 10, 2013) - Bread Winners' Association/Atlantic recording artist Kevin Gates has announced details of his upcoming headline tour. Dubbed the "Stranger Than Fiction Tour," the trek gets underway October 16th in Jacksonville, Florida and continues through early November (see below itinerary). Support throughout the tour comes from special guests Step Brothers (a.k.a. Starlito & Don Trip).

    The "Stranger Than Fiction Tour" celebrates the recent release of Gates' acclaimed new album, "STRANGER THAN FICTION." The Baton Rouge-based rapper's full-length debut has earned rapturous reviews from an array of national publications, including Pitchfork, which praised "Gates' versatile rapping... keen lyricism and inventive vocal tricks," noting "the record's uncompromising hard luck street narratives are dispensed with a preternaturally sharp eye for detail." THE FADER, commended the album for "moving from hyper-detailed, heartbreaking tracks like '4:30 AM,' to collaborations with Migos, Juicy J and a particularly hoarse track with Starlito with effortless intensity." "Kevin Gates demonstrates the vulnerability and inventive style that have made him one of 2013's buzzing newcomers," declared XXL while applauding "STRANGER THAN FICTION" as "a melodic brand of street music that maintains a crucial gritty aesthetic." "Gates' mournful gangster fatalism and gift for melody is on full display," wrote Complex, while SPIN raved, "His vision is wide and open-hearted, and his skills are extensive... quite simply, (Kevin Gates is) one of the most sensitive and self-aware rappers around."

    Hailed as one of hip-hop's most intriguing and exciting new artists, Kevin Gates broke out big-time with the explosive release earlier this year of his masterful mixtape, "THE LUCA BRASI STORY." The set -- along with featured roles on tracks like Pusha T's standout "Trust You" -- earned the Baton Rouge MC both popular success and widespread critical acclaim for his extraordinary emotional power and melodic invention, ultimately leading to a new partnership between Atlantic Records and his own Bread Winners' Association.

    Now "STRANGER THAN FICTION" expertly builds upon the mixtape's accomplishment, highlighting Gates' idiosyncratic style on diverse tracks like "Strokin'," "Satellites (HPG Remix) (Feat. Wiz Khalifa)," and the truly haunting single, "4:30 AM."
