Mouse on Mars to tour in support of new album

According to the Sonig Label website, the German avant-electronica duo of Mouse on Mars will be touring North America in the Fall. To my knowledge, this will be the first time MoM performs for an audience in the Southeast U.S. [see tour dates below]. The tour is in support of their forthcoming release "Radical Connector," which will be released domestically on August 23 via the Thrill Jockey Label.

The new album is a radical departure from their signature sound of glitch and scratch beats submerged in a washing machine, given the booty beat driven music and R&B influenced vocal stylings. Luckily the washing machine effects are still there to appeal to their underground devotees in what could be the crossover effort of the year. Definitely an album to listen up for later this summer!

In any event, the Southeastern U.S. tour dates are listed below. For a full listing of North American dates, go to the Sonig website. Opening acts are Junior Boys and/or Ratatat, both recently reviewed by JFP.
