Klaxons announce North American tour dates!

I'm working on an interview with Jamie of Klaxons... and while you're waiting I thought I'd throw this info up for you with a little goodie attached...

Klaxons - "Gravity's Rainbow (To My Boy Remix)"

“one of the best pop albums of the year – but still one of the most individual and ambitious.” – NME

“Even at low volume, it sounds astonishingly loud and euphoric – a self consciously epic record of
rampant ambition and deliberately arcane weirdness.” – Nylon

It’s been 3 years since Klaxons burst onto the music scene, injecting a dazzling and much needed moment of
rave hedonism into the midst of indie tedium with the truly original and enormously influential Mercury award-winning
album Myths of the Near Future. The band are back with the critically acclaimed follow up, Surfing the Void released
via tinyOGRE on January 18 and are thrilled to announce that they’ll be hitting our shores this spring for a national
headlining tour. Their spring tour will see them performing on both of our fair coasts kicking off March 25 in
Orlando at the Social and making stops at the Ultra Music Festival and Coachella.

“villainous guitar rambling, dread-in-the-gut bass lines, and stentorian falsetto shrieks. But even Klaxons’ most
ominously rambunctious tracks grind out plenty of bug-eyed dream pop chants.” – Spin
