Asobi Seksu Add Tour Dates With White Lies and Sun Airway

Asobi Seksu have announced a couple more tour dates, in case anyone got left out of the first round. This time, the group will be accompanied by Sun Airways and White Lies.

The band is still reveling in the positive critical glow that followed the release of their fourth album, Fluorescence, which came out February 15th via Polyvinyl. The album showcased the band’s familiar song and ever-growing songwriting skills.

The band has also had a couple of other musicians remix their tracks. You can hear Holy Other and Painted Palms remixes of the song “Trails” here.

White Lies Prep New Album, Offer Live Version Of “Bigger Than Us”

Photobucket

White Lies’ sophomore album, Ritual, is set to hit stores on January 18th via Geffen/Fiction. Produced by Alan Moulder, Ritual is an epic and roaring follow up to 2009’s To Lose My Life, taking the listener on a sonic journey through dancefloor beats, raging guitars, and everything in between. The new album teems with dark distorted anthems for the modern age, leading British critics to hail White Lies as successors to the likes of Echo & The Bunnymen, The Teardrop Explodes, Depeche Mode, and The Psychedelic Furs. Magazine has dubbed lyricist [and bass guitarist] Charles Cave a “classic doom-rock dreamweaver; Nick Cave meeting Edgar Allen Poe.

The U.K. trio is now offering a live version of their first single “Bigger Than Us.” The phenomenal live track  was recorded in Mexico for Sesiones Con Alejandro Franco.

The clip, directed by Petro Papahadjopoulos, has the craziest aesthetic ever: think pastry chefs cooking in the middle of a snowstorm. Regardless, its unearthly sound and electronic sound gives Active Child a new edge. They will also be touring England with White Lies next year.
