Australian sample pioneers The Avalanches have announced a 2022 North American tour. General ticket on-sale begins at 10:00am local time this Friday, July 23 at http://theavalanches.com. The tour showcases The Avalanches members Robbie Chater and Tony Di Blasi in an all-new electronic stage setup.
Kicking off on February 17, 2022 at the 9:30 Club in Washington, D.C., The Avalanches are set to take the audience on a cosmic journey, as they explore the vibrational relationship between light, sound, and spirit. The early 2022 North American tour announcement follows a string of recent Australian shows for the duo.
The Avalanches recently commemorated the 20th anniversary of their ground-breaking debut album, Since I Left You, with the release of a deluxe edition featuring numerous bonus tracks – including fresh mixes from such artists as MF Doom, Black Dice, Leon Vynehall, Sinkane and Carl Craig. The anniversary edition, which just hit No.1 on the NACC Electronic college radio chart, is available now in vinyl, CD and digital formats.
Since I Left You was named one of the year’s best albums by critics around the world and later placed in the Top 10 of Pitchfork’s Top 200 Albums of the 2000s and in the Top 20 of Rolling Stone’s Greatest EDM Albums of All Time.
The release and subsequent touring in support of Since I Left You was followed by a 16-year radio silence, which was broken with the release of The Avalanches’ sophomore album, Wildflower (Astralwerks), which debuted at No.1 on Billboard’s Vinyl Albums chart and atop the Australian Albums chart in 2016.
