British electronic duo Underworld will return to North America for their first set of shows here in five years this May. The dates kick off on 15 May at the Warfield in San Francisco, and includes stops in Los Angeles, New York and Detroit before wrapping on 27 May at the Rebel in Toronto.
In a statement, Underworld say they will “perform their immersive and gloriously hallucinatory two-hour plus live sets” that will boast a mix of classic cuts and newer material from their unique Drift: Series 1 project. Visit Underworld’s official website for tickets and further information on all the upcoming shows in North America.
Underworld released Drift: Series 1 back in November, the culmination of a year-long project that started back in November 2018 and found the duo releasing a piece of new music every Thursday for 52 weeks.
The duo completed their task by making music in hotel rooms, kitchens, tour buses, cars and studios around the world, while also collaborating with various artists like the Japanese noise band Melt-Banana and techno producer Ø [Phase]. Drift: Series 1 collected every bit of new music made over that year, while it also included an assortment of previously unreleased tracks, remix and rehearsal recordings.
As uDiscover Music previously reported, Underworld have also been confirmed as one of the headlining acts at this year’s Boomtown Fair Festival in Hampshire, UK, along with Wu-Tang Clan and The Libertines.
Billed as “Chapter 12: New Beginnings”, the latest edition of the Hampshire festival returns from 12 – 16 August – with each area of the event boasting its own themed stages, acts, actors and decor. This year, organisers have announced ‘State of Emergency’, an immersive theatrical experience that will unfold across the weekend.
