M83 Announces More U.S. Tour Dates

New Album Due Soon

Feb 16, 2016 M83 Bookmark and Share

M83 (aka Anthony Gonzalez) announced back in December that he’d finished his new album and that it’s due out sometime in 2016. Some M83 tour dates were also announced last month and now 10 new dates have been added to their itinerary. All the dates are below, with the newly announced shows in bold.

If you’re a female singer/keyboardist, then you still have a chance to actually be part of M83’s lineup for this tour. A couple of weeks back Gonzalez put out an open call for a new female keyboardist/singer to fill the spot vacated by Morgan Kibby, who left the lineup to more fully focus on her White Sea solo project. On the band’s website here there’s a form to submit video links of your singing and keyboard playing, if you meet the requirements (have a valid passport, no criminal history that would impede international travel, be available between April and December, and be able to start rehearsals in Los Angeles in March).

The new album is the follow-up to 2011’s fantastic Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming. In an in-the-studio interview with Entertainment Weekly back in December Gonzalez called the new album “epic.” “It’s a very strong album with a lot of eclecticism,” Gonzalez told Entertainment Weekly. “It’s very epic. There’s a lot of different genres that are not supposed to live together but I tried to make them live together, which is quite challenging. It’s also quite different from the previous albums which is what I’m the most proud of.”

Gonzalez also said that the album was inspired by ‘70s and ‘80s television. “Shows like Punky Brewster and Who’s the Boss,” he said. “I feel like TV shows are starting to sound and look the same. There’s no more passion anymore. So this album is a tribute to those old-fashioned shows.”
