MIAMI HORROR - SUMMERSUN TOUR
In the midst of a highly successful world tour, MIAMI HORROR have announced their last Australian shows for 2011.
Come August, the indie-electronic adventurers will re-locate to L.A for a busy Northern hemisphere summer spent performing and writing new material.
The June/July Summersun Tour will end a snowballing run of dates across the globe.
Including standout showcase performances at South By South West in Austin, Texas, where they played to crowds who jammed themselves into clubs and venues so tight that fire marshals had to eject some punters due to overcrowding.
The crazed tour has seen MIAMI HORROR gather in-store airplay at H&M throughout Europe, a #1 airplay song in Denmark, radio and music TV play in Switzerland, sell-out shows in L.A and Mexico and dates from Vegas to Rio.
With Ballarat’s Gold Fields in stride, MIAMI HORROR hit Ballarat, Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne, Bateau Bay and Sydney.
The tour launches the group’s fifth single ‘Summersun’ from their acclaimed full-length, Illumination. Illumination delivered on two years of teeth-cutting live shows and an ever-escalating wave of buzz that’s made the group one of the most daring dance acts.
The roots of the record stretch back to a synthesizer-obsessed Benjamin Plant huddled in his bedroom studio. Initially brought to light by a bunch of thoroughly blogged remixes, his latest, a remake of Gorillaz ‘Empire Ants’ satat #1 on the Hype Machine for weeks.
Illumination has spawned 4 club hit singles so far with ‘Sometimes’ (peaked ARIA #2), ‘Moon Theory’ (peaked ARIA #15), ‘I Look To You’ (peaked ARIA #20) and ‘Holidays’ (peaked ARIA #36).
Avoiding the limitations that have been stereotyped by dance acts, Benjamin rewired MIAMI HORROR’s genetic makeup, deploying the talents of Josh Moriarty, Aaron Shanahan and Daniel Whitechurch back in 2009 to form the live band which has taken them to some of the world’s best stages.
