Miami Horror Announces fall North American tour

New single + video “Restless” out now

Today, Miami Horror announce their new month-long North American fall tour featuring an all star lineup along with four summer dates in Indonesia for the Road to Soundrenaline series and two major festival dates in Mexico.

What began as a solo project by producer Benjamin Plant, Miami Horror quickly grew into a four-piece live band. This iteration of the live show will now see Miami Horror as a living, breathing organism, malleable and ever-changing in their diverse musical influences. For the upcoming shows, the band will feature vocalists Reva Devito and TC Milan with Melbourne’s Queen Magic on guitar, while current vocalist and guitarist Josh Moriarty takes a much needed break from touring.

n response to the new show, Plant says, “I’m really excited to finally step things up after all these years. There’s always been a disparity between our live show and recorded music and the new live lineup gives us an opportunity to be less restricted. Long-term, we want to build on this and take people on a journey musically, mixing tracks continuously and following my original vision for the project that’s more fluid and collaborative.”

The tour announcement comes shortly after the release of their new single and music video “Restless.” It’s a stepping stone of their new vision of collaborative style, marrying the funky elements of their past with a softer R&B-leaning vocal. “I love putting two people in a room that wouldn’t normally work together and seeing what comes of it,” Plant says in reference to finding the “Restless” inspiration and collaborator, Kevin Lavitt.

“Restless” combines dreamy, lo-fi funk guitar, relaxed, 70s-esque drums, and a sultry, impassioned vocal.  The sepia-glazed music video directed by Keenan Wetzel (Haux, Aisha Badru) finds an assortment of quirky characters coming together for some good old-fashioned tennis training and a spark of lust.

“Restless” arrived nearly two years after Miami Horror’s visionary EP ‘The Shapes,’ and demonstrated the band’s shift toward their collaborative and production-based roots, a direction that Plant champions as the new incarnation of the project.

Plant says, “’The Shapes’ was always meant to be a one-off conceptual project, so once that was complete I began moving back towards the original creative process that Miami Horror started with; a simpler approach to production and a continued emphasize on outside vocalists.” He continues, “For me, music has always been about completing a vision and trying to make something stand out. Allowing outside collaboration really opens me up to complete that vision without being restricted to my own skill set.”
