Santa Cruz’s own rock star James Durbin is set to tour the country this summer on the energy of his brand new release ‘Riot on Sunset.’

Santa Cruz rocker James Durbin is about to embark on a big summer, launched with the release this week of his new album titled “Riot on Sunset” and the album’s first single “Smackdown.”

Durbin, 27, shot to national stardom on “American Idol” in the spring of 2011. Since then, he has released two previous albums, “Memories of a Beautiful Disaster” and “Celebrate,” and has performed on various platforms from “The Tonight Show” to the “Ellen Degeneres Show.”

“Riot on Sunset” continues Durbin’s pursuit of a new hard-rock sound. The video for “Smackdown” is now available on YouTube. Durbin will be touring in support of the album this summer. The tour will bring him to his hometown as the headliner at the Crow’s Nest Beach Party, out on the beach near the Crow’s Nest, on Aug. 4. For more information, go to www.jamesdurbinofficial.com.
