Delicate Steve Announces New Tour Dates + Performances at CMJ ’12

By on October 4, 2012

NY-based multi-instrumentalist Delicate Steve (Steve Marion) has announced new North American tour dates behind his critically acclaimed sophomore album, Positive Force, out now on Luaka Bop. Commencing on October 12 in Blairstown New Jersey, the tour will include several appearances at CMJ 2012, dates in Canada, and a run of midwest and western performances.
Delicate Steve just returned from his first European tour, including a sold-out London show, and performed with Sigur Rós, and Omar Rodriguez Lopez (The Mars Volta, At the Drive-In). Touring behind the album all summer, the band has shared the stage with Girl Talk, Givers, Yeasayer, tUnE-yArDs, and more. Positive Forcewas uniquely introduced, as ten bands including Yeasayer, tUnE-yArDs, Ra Ra Riot and Givers premiered a different track from the album across their social media channels. The album stream followed the band’s public installation listening event where playbutton devices housing one of Positive Force‘s ten songs were placed in ten locations across Brooklyn and Manhattan.
