Fresh off releasing the new smashing single, “HEAT” (feat. Sam Nelson Harris), New York based electronic duo The Knocks (who are known for their critically-acclaimed sold-out live shows) announce a massive 2017 North AmericanFeel Good Feel Great” tour. The Knocks have curated a support lineup that boasts a diverse mix of “who’s next” in electronic and dance music, including Manchester, UK multi-platinum recording artist and DJ Snake-collaborator Bipolar Sunshine, left-field house music production duo Gilligan Moss, LA based DJ Lophiile, OWSLA signee Mark Johns, and the continuation of Ryan DeRobertis’ Saint Pepsi project Skylar Spence. To celebrate the occasion, The Knocks also shared a visually-stunning tour diary; set to Manila Killa’s wavy, ethereal remix of their new single, “HEAT” (LINK). The video masterfully splices together live and candid cinematic footage from The Knocks on the road during recent sold-out international tour supporting Justin Bieber on the European leg of his “Purpose” tour, making for a compelling tour diary to get fans excited for what’s to come. Manila Killa’s remix is available worldwide today via Big Beat Records. The Knocks have most recently toured with global sensations Ellie Goulding and The 1975, on top of huge festival dates and sold-out headlining shows worldwide.




The genre-defying duo’s fiery, futuristic electronic burner with R&B influences “HEAT” is the first original work by The Knocks since their debut full-length effort ‘55’, released earlier this year. ‘55’ was a triumph, and a resolutely DIY dance album that pulses with the heart of the city. The album features a star-studded cast; a diverse list of musical styles and artistic approaches, from New York’s hip hop legend Cam’ron to pop-sensation Carly Rae Jepsen. The album twists and turns with unexpected guests and genre-bending flavor, featuring contributions from artists like GRAMMY-winner Wyclef Jean, to Fetty Wap, and Walk The Moon, each of which provide an unparalleled gusto best described by NOISEY as “bombastic, funk-finagled, and fun.”

With more new music on the way, executive producers on Wyclef Jean’s new LP, and a slew of A-list festivals and support tours under their belt, 2017 brings high-hopes to the Lower East Side DJ/producer juggernauts. As The Huffington Post most aptly put it… The Knocks are one of the best bets for what’s next in pop music, as their eventual ascension to stardom is all but secured.”
