– PRE-RELEASE SHOWS POSTPONED
DUE TO WORK ON ‘PAPER TOWNS’ SOUNDTRACK
– NEW DATES ANNOUNCED INCLUDING VILLAGE UNDERGROUND,
GREEN MAN & VISIONS FESTIVAL
– NEW ALBUM ‘BONES’
OUT JUNE 22ND ON GLASSNOTE RECORDINGS
Following the announcement of Son Lux’s forthcoming album ‘Bones’, which is set for release on June 22nd via Glassnote Recordings, the band have had to reschedule the planned European pre-release events whilst front man Ryan Lott works on the score for movie Paper Towns (starring Cara Delevigne).
The previously announced May shows in London, Brussels, Amsterdam, and Berlin have been replaced with the following October shows:
More dates are to be announced soon.
The band’s guitarist Rafiq Bhatia explained:
“We are truly sorry to announce the cancellation of our upcoming performances in London (May 5), Brussels (May 7), Amsterdam (May 8), and Berlin (May 11). As you may have heard, Ryan will be scoring the forthcoming film adaptation of John Green’s Paper Towns. Unfortunately, there was no way for Ryan to participate in this exciting and enabling project without altering our tour schedule.
“The good news is that we are working on a 20-date album release tour in the UK and Europe this fall, and any tickets purchased for these May shows will still be honored for the corresponding October show within the same city. Of course, refunds will also be available to those who would prefer them.
“We sincerely love our fans and would like to express our deepest thanks to you all for your continued support. We’re looking forward to sharing new music with you all soon.”
Son Lux just finished a US tour with tUnE-yArDs and will be playing their recently announced US shows throughout June and July as well as European festivals including Green Man & Visions Festivals and the new October shows. Full European dates below.
Founded by producer-composer Ryan Lott in 2007, with the recent additions of guitarist-composer Rafiq Bhatia and drummer Ian Chang, Son Lux is now a ferocious trio both live and on record. Bones is the first album documenting this new formation, and it draws from the three members’ unique and omnivorous musical vernaculars. Few bands have built a more impressive and varied array of collaborators: Lorde, Beyoncé producer Boots, Sufjan Stevens, Matthew Dear, Busdriver, Vijay Iyer, Nico Muhly and Pulitzer Prize winner Caroline Shaw.
