Belgian electro-rock-wizards Soulwax h
ave announced details of a brief UK tour later this months month, and it’s set to be a disco-ball-crunching, spectacular affair.
Hot on the tails of their long awaited eighth studio album From Deewee – their most electronically inclined work to date, recorded in just one take – the Dewaele brothers have got the UK’s gig venues excited and will be sure to get the party started at Manchester Academy on December 17.
After a stunning set this summer at Bluedot Festival
, bringing old school ravers, shiny new hipsters and unashamedly square nerds together for a journey through their achingly catchy electronic oeuvre, the bar is set high for their winter tour.
Expect hardcore synths, robust drum beats, simple melodies and gigantic spinning stage props. Support comes from electronic/dance music producer Joe Goddard (Hot Chip) as he heats up for the brothers.
