Today, Eliot Sumner announced a run of headline shows in New York, Chicago, Boston and more! See full routing below, which includes performances at Austin City Limits and an in-store performance at Armani’s New York flagship celebrating Eliot’s appearance in Armani Exchange’s fall 2016 campaign.
This year marked the release of Eliot’s debut album under her own name, Information, performances at SXSW and Governor’s Ball and appearances on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and The Late Late Show with James Corden. This is the follow up to her inaugural headline North American tour earlier this year, which sold out two Los Angeles shows. PRESS HERE to watch her performance of “Information” on KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic.
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” – leading into the release of Information. Influences from Krautrock-inspired riffs to pulsing synth-pop rhythms paired with her signature alto are heard throughout the record. 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.
