LITTLE DRAGON FEATURED ON GORILLAZ TOUR, GEAR UP FOR NEW ALBUM + TOUR IN 2011

While the rest of Little Dragon is back in Gothenburg, Sweden putting the finishing touches on their newly recorded album, Yukimi Nagano and Fredrik Wallin are currently on the road with the Gorillaz in North America as special guests’ performing both “Empire Ants” & “To Binge” off the critically acclaimed Gorillaz Plastic Beach full length. Little Dragon is the only group featured twice on the spring 2010 release from the Gorillaz. The remaining members of Little Dragon will join Nagano and Wallin on the road for an exclusive full band performance this fall at the Treasure Island Music Festival in San Francisco and then on the road in Europe for the forthcoming Gorillaz dates as support, opening all of the shows along the world tour (Europe, Asia, Australia, New Zealand) through the end of the year. They will complete mastering their follow up to the critically adored “Machine Dreams” release after the Gorillaz tour and will have new music to share. The Dragon’s are also set to depart for their own solo tour across the US at the top of 2011 for which they will be showcasing songs off the new album.

Hailing from Gothenburg, Sweden, Little Dragon emerged with tremendous stealth and ease onto the scene after their 2007 Self-Titled (Peace Frog) debut splashed overseas. A healthy following quickly blossomed off an aggressive touring schedule and impressive word of mouth on US soil as the album was available through import only. They were (and continue to be) a music lovers secret weapon – a band on the rise that is dedicated to their vision by traversing all creative boundaries. This welcomes brilliant support from music industry leaders such as KCRW who put the band in heavy rotation in their programming schedule second only to Radiohead, and Dave Sitek (Tv On The Radio) who took them on tour with his band for a brief run in 2009. Their fan base runs deep and was built almost entirely through organic measures and grassroots promotion in the States with no real label. Little Dragon jumped back into the studio and unleashed Machine Dreams in late 2009 which introduces a synthesis of style and sound that might only be heard in the finest moments of 80’s Prince, during a marriage between R&B and Jazz, with traces of Soul and Dancehall to back it up. In true Gorillaz fashion they were welcomed to join an incredible cast of artists to collaborate on the “Plastic Beach” full length which is now in stores. Catch them all over North America featured within the Gorillaz live show this fall or for an exclusive full band performance at the Treasure Island Music Festival in San Francisco next weekend alongside LCD Soundsystem. Hit me up for more details on the new album.
