Electronic three-piece Innerpartysystem will be joining the seminal Australian band Pendulum on the road this February for a run of North American support dates, kicking off on February 5 at New York Cityâ€™s Irving Plaza. The band will be playing fan favorites as well as brand new songs from their forthcoming EP, entitled Never Be Content, due for release in early 2011 on Red Bull Records. This coast-to-coast tour will include stops in Denver, Salt Lake City, Seattle, Vancouver, San Francisco and Los Angeles before wrapping in Las Vegas at the House of Blues on February 26. Tickets go on sale Friday, December 17th.
Innerpartysystem – Patrick Nissley (vocals), Jarred Piccone (drums), and Kris Barman (synth, guitar) – has been on the road for the better part of 2010 with their mind-blowing live show, a cutting-edge display of the most innovative and sophisticated DIY electro rock that youâ€™ve heard in years. With loops and effects hand-manipulated live on stage with both incredible precision and genius improvisation, live drums and an out-of-this-world hand-programmed light show enhance every moment of the live set. Not just a band who can produce dance beats, Innerpartysystemâ€™s fresh approach to electronic music, both in recording and performing techniques, only scratches the surface of the vast artistic palette that this band possesses. Their passion for visual art has also found its way into their creative process, like the piece of â€œtrash artâ€ they recently created
for a contest in Denver where their current single â€œAmerican Trashâ€ is the #3 best-selling alt track. The impressive 8â€™ x 12â€™ American flag made solely from trash went home with one adoring fan after the bandâ€™s recent KTCL Denver holiday radio show.
“American Trash,” showcasing the band’s irresistible blend of amped-up electro, hard-hitting rock and memorable hooks, has been quickly gaining traction at modern and alt rock radio stations across the country, including KRBZ Kansas City, X96 Salt Lake, KPNT St. Louis and the influential KTCL Denver, where it has been the #1 most requested song for the past 3 months. â€œAmerican Trashâ€ is streaming here.
The band most recently played an epic set at this year’s Voodoo Fest and completed a series of holiday radio shows for KTCL Denver, X96 Salt Lake and KRBZ Kansas City alongside My Chemical Romance, 3OH!3 and OK Go.
Innerpartysystemâ€™s Jared Piccone says of the tour, â€œPendulum?!? Are you kidding me?!? That was our first reaction when we heard the news that we would be sharing a stage with one of our biggest influences. We’ve been listening to Pendulum for years. I can remember setting up turntables in our living room in our first band house, in Mohnton, PA, spinning “Breakbeat Kaos” vinyls with the guys all night long. A year or so after IPS was formed, we noticed Pendulum was no longer just a DJ outfit, and had formed into a full band. Since then we have thought the pairing of our two bands makes beyond sense. This is the most anticipated tour for IPS since its inception. February can’t come soon enough.â€
Innerpartysystem has been steadily building a loyal fanbase since their debut album was released in 2008. Since then, they have made a name for themselves on the U.S. and UK festival circuit, sold out headlining tours in the US and overseas and have shared a stage with everyone from Nine Inch Nails to 3OH!3. They are also sought-after remixers, providing remixes for the likes of Katy Perry, Keane, The Killers, 30 Seconds To Mars, Cobra Starship and more.
The UK by way of Australia band Pendulum have set their new album Immersion for a January 25th US release and will be supporting it with both a US arena tour as main support for Linkin Park and their newly added series of headlining dates. Nominated by Q Magazine as the â€œBest Live Act,â€ Pendulum played to a sold-out Club Nokia in LA on their last sold-out headlining tour and is widely known as â€œTHE MUST SEEâ€ festival act having played headline slots at festivals around the world. With TV performances on Last Call with Carson Daly and Jimmy Kimmel Live and a Top 40 alternative commercial radio hit â€œPropane Nightmaresâ€ from their sophomore album In Silico, Pendulum are quickly turning US audiences on to their unique blend of electro rock.
