Following a string of sold out West Coast shows last month, Ladytron have announced East Coast dates this October including New York, Boston, Montreal and Toronto.
Ladytron are Helen Marnie, Reuben Wu, Mira Aroyo, and Daniel Hunt. The North American dates are in support of their eponymous sixth LP out February 15th that ended their 8-year hiatus. It entered the Billboard Dance/Electronic Album Chart at #13, earning them some of the best reviews of their career, many saying it was their best work since “The Witching Hour”. Earlier this year, they’ve performed a set of enthusiastically-received shows on the West Coast, including CRSSD, San Diego and two sold out shows at LA’s Fonda Theatre. Two singles from Ladytron have been made into short films, The Animals, The Island and soon to come will be the short film for Far From Home.
Praise for Ladytron
“Ladytron’s new songs sound right at home alongside fellow conceptual electronic pop artists like SOPHIE, Robyn and Christine & The Queens.” – NPR
“An immersive, invigorating and convincingly brooding stomp” – The Guardian (4/5)
“They are the dystopian band for these dystopian times.” – Pitchfork (7.7)
“‘All the right noises in all the right places…another fine addition to an already impressive body of work.” – Drowned in Sound
“Giorgio Moroder and Donna Summer dropped in liquid nitrogen…easily Ladytron’s best album since 2005’s Witching Hour.” – Brooklyn Vegan
“A more complex sound, hinting at a world full of discontent…The result is a complementary combination, like adding syrup to effervescence.” – BUST Mag (5/5)
“Ethereal and feathery…Dark times, but Ladytron soundtrack them beautifully.” – MOJO (4/5)
“This self-titled effort sees the band re-embrace the icy dread of their first releases while adopting a more muscular sensibility.” – UNCUT (7/10)
“A record that is both out of time and completely of the moment.” – Classic Pop
“The group explores a panorama of moods and textures through the LP, revealing not just their musical depths, but also the influence they’ve had on new bands like CHVRCHES, Chromatics, and countless others.” – Flood
Distilling twenty years of experimentation into one propulsive album, Ladytron’s new LP again pushes the boundaries of electronic pop in invigorating directions with thirteen songs that explore the disquiet of our times. Loaded with their trademark analogue synths propelled by relentless rhythm, Ladytron is the band’s most definitive work, a hypercharged album full of catchy hooks, rousing riffs, sweeping melodies, and thick textured harmonies that radiates a visceral urgency.
