Holy Other announces first North American tour EVER

Holy Other announces first North American tour EVER

Manchester’s Holy Other is coming to America. The spooky producer is tunneling his way deep within the summer festival circuit of Europe, but for those Yanks who have been thirsting for Mr. Other’s smooth, ghostly jams, get ready: dude’s touring the US in support of Brazilian electronica wizard Amon Tobin and his wild and wacky ISAM Live tour, which promises Tobin hanging out and rockin’ faces from deep within the depths of some kind of weirdo geometric cube that somehow (WITCHCRAFT) allows him to play with what Wired calls “real-time projection mapping, generative imagery and audio-reactive elements.” So basically, it’s like a stranger, more innovative, more aurally pleasurable version of Will.i.am getting beamed in to comment on the 2008 election coverage. Or something. I don’t know. You’ll have to see it live, I guess.

On his fall US dates, Holy Other will be showing off tracks from his forthcoming debut album, Held, due August 28 via Tri Angle. You can peep the first song from Held, “Love Some1,” via Holy Other’s SoundCloud, here:
