After 5 years away, Chromatics is back on the road, heading to Canada and select US cities before heading to Europe. London Beasts, get your tickets for the show at The Roundhouse on 27th October, and then the band goes wide with nights in Manchester, Glasgow & Bristol.
The Portland-based punk, if they are in the mood, band will be playing their favorite moments from Night Drive, Kill For Love, Cherry, and Dear Tommy. Each night features films directed by Johnny Jewel mixed live by video artist Danny Perez (Antibirth, Panda Bear), blurring the line between stage and screen.
Montreal’s Desire will be performing in support. Front woman Megan Louise sings in French and English over Italo-disco-laced dream pop, and their single “Under Your Spell” made a splash in cinemas in Nicolas Winding Refn’s cult classic Drive.
Also in support is Italians Do It Better label mates In Mirrors, who open the nights with their hypnotic brand of minimal wave, krautrock, and post punk.
Chromatics recently released their new single “Time Rider”, in which they employ the metaphor of a motorcycle as an inter-dimensional bridge between the future and the past. Can you get on board?
