Today, Eliot Sumner announced a run of headline shows in New York for Governor’s Ball, Boston, Los Angeles and more – see full tour routing below and PRESS HERE to purchase tickets. These dates follow the release of Eliot’s debut album under her own name, Information, earlier this year. Last month, Eliot embarked on a run of west coast tour dates that included a stop at SXSW and an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, where Eliot performed “After Dark” and “Information.”
Eliot’s talents as a songwriter and instrumentalist gained praise upon the release of four new songs last year – “Dead Arms & Dead Legs”, “After Dark”, “Firewood” and “Species” – as well as the release of Information. Influences from Krautrock-inspired riffs to pulsing synth-pop rhythms paired with her signature alto are heard throughout the record. 2015 also marked Eliot’s first North American tour with On An On in August and September followed by a European tour in November.
In 2014, following the release of her first EP, Eliot joined Lykke Li as support on her European tour dates. The backstage antics of Eliot and her band were captured in a three-part behind the scenes documentary featured on i-D, “On the Road with Eliot Sumner and Lykke Li” –PRESS HERE to watch.
