The tour will come to the SEC Armadillo on 21 October 2018. Tickets go on sale 9am, Friday 20 July.
Last weekend alt-J headlined Latitude Festival for a second time, and they headline festivals throughout Europe this summer. They today announce a new autumn tour of the UK and Ireland, taking in six shows, including a very special performance at the legendary Royal Albert Hall.
alt-J today announce REDUXER, a set of 11 incredible reinterpretations of songs from their award winning third album RELAXER, reimagined by a host of fans, friends and peers, including a globe-straddling cross-section of some of the world’s most influential and prolific hip hop artists and producers.
Putting their own indelible vocals on the songs are, amongst others, Grammy-nominated US hip hop high flyer GoldLink, platinum-certified Parisian rapper Lomepal, Berlin powerhouse Kontra K, Dublin-born breakthrough rapper Rejjie Snow, Australian auteur Tuka , Puerto Rican rapper PJ Sin Suela and London’s acclaimed Little Simz. The project was first hinted at last month when Virginia Beach hip hop superstar Pusha T and LA synth pop polymath Twin Shadow both joined alt-J for a surprise performance of In Cold Blood on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, before swiftly releasing the studio version of the collaboration. “ It's no secret that we love and are influenced by hip-hop, and it's always been a dream of ours to work with hip-hop artists in reimagining our music,” the band explained. “With REDUXER that dream has come true. We couldn't be happier with the results. This album is truly global, featuring rappers and producers from all over the world. After a very long time in the making, we are stoked to share it with you all.” A second track is debuted today, a new version of Deadcrush reworked by legendary producer The Alchemist and Latin American production powerhouse Trooko, and featuring the unmistakable vocals of hip hop iconoclast Danny Brown.
alt-J - one of the most successful British bands of the millennium - are Joe Newman, Gus Unger-Hamilton and Thom Green. Released last year, RELAXER flew straight into the top 10 of the UK album chart ahead of a summer of major international shows, including a headline show at London’s O2 Arena; and headline performances at numerous festivals. RELAXER is the follow up to their number one, GRAMMY and BRIT Award-nominated album This Is All Yours , and their 2012 Mercury Prize and Ivor Novello Award-winning debut An Awesome Wave . Between them, the records have sold in excess of two million copies and their songs have been streamed more than one billion times. RELAXER is available now via Infectious Music in heavyweight vinyl, CD, cassette and digital formats.
