Matthew Koma will open the Cherrytree Pop Alternative Tour, featuring headliners LMFAO and Far East Movement, when it heads to European theaters next month.

The Seaford singer-songwriter, who is wrapping up work on his major-label debut for Interscope Records, will be part of the Cherrytree Revue, a trio of up-and-coming artists from the Cherrytree/Interscope roster, along with Natalia Kills and Colette Carr.

The tour kicks off Feb. 18 in Stockholm, Sweden, and ends March 22 in Lisbon, Portugal. Koma – who had his first major-label releases last year when his song “Novocaine Lips” was part of the “Abduction” soundtrack and he was featured on the Lil Playy hit “Birthday Dress” – plans to release his first Interscope single in late spring, with the album to follow later in the year.
