BBE, Horizons Touring and Acclaim Magazine presents
WEDIDIT TOUR ft SHLOHMO (Live), Purple (Live), D33J, Nick Melons + special guests
BBE, Horizons Touring and Acclaim Magazine are proud to present the Perth leg of the first ever WEDIDIT Tour of Australia and New Zealand in July 2015, featuring SHLOHMO (with full live band), Purple (LIVE), D33J, Nick Melons and special guests!
Set to be held on Saturday 1 August at Villa in Northbridge, the tour is in support of Shlohmo's mesmerizing new album "Dark Red" (out now on True Panther) featuring the inimitable "Beams" and the breathtaking "Emerge From Smoke."
A STATEMENT FROM SHLOHMO:
When I started working on Dark Red about two and a half years ago, I had just moved back to LA and built a small studio in my apartment mostly with my dad's old gear from the 80s. Things were kind of weird in my life at the time. I had just lost some people close to me and was dealing with another loved one's health issues. I was all over the place mentally, and I think it reflects in this record whether I like it or not. The only thing I did know going into it, was that I wanted this one to be loud, and not just loud but really really f***ing loud. I wanted the sound of the thing to be devastating and violent. Recordings that force you to feel something even if that something isn't good.
I'm proud to have made something polarizing, a record that's strong and undeniable even in it's moments of pure anxiety and confusion. It's tragic and painful at times, but that's all part of it and I want that to be heard and felt. You don't have to like it, just listen to it.
Fader: "This time around, perhaps owing to the record's strong metal influence, he's (SHLOHMO) set for himself the task of arranging his laptop productions for a three-piece live band. He and fellow WEDIDIT member Djavan Santos, who is also 24 and goes by D33J, will strap on guitars; Bill DeLelles, a hired gun percussionist flown in from New York, will execute some of the album's contrapuntal machine-drum arrangements with live pads."
