MATT AND KIM are on the road with Passion Pit, having kicked off their tour together this past Tuesday in Norfolk, VA. It’s a fantastic not-to-be-missed US tour, which includes a sold-out hometown date at Madison Square Garden this Friday. The coast-to-coast trek will find Matt and Kim performing in packed arenas across North America through early March.  After their dates with Passion Pit, Matt and Kim head to Miami for back-to-back weekend performances at Ultra Music Festival March 16th and 22nd.


In late 2012, Matt and Kim wrapped a massive sold-out headlining tour in support of their awesome 4th full length LIGHTNING (FADER Label). Filmed along that incredible tour, Matt and Kim’s new “Lightning Tour” documentary features revealing behind-the-scenes footage of the duo, as well as exclusive interviews with the band and their tour crew.  Watch it here:


Last fall, Matt and Kim kicked off their “Lightning Tour” with a performance of the first single “Let’s Go” on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon. The single has continued to climb up the radio charts with ongoing air-play at KROQ-LA, KNDD-Seattle, WEQX-Albany, KEXP-Seattle, Live 105-San Francisco, Sirius 20 on 20, Sirius Alt Nation/XMU, WRFF-Philadelphia, WROX-Norfolk, KKDO-Sacramento, KRBZ-Kansas City, KCMP-Minneapolis, WWCD-Columbus, and KRXP-Colorado Springs.


“Exuberance! Jumping! Dancing! Matt and Kim’s live shows have plenty of bounce for the ounce” – Portland Mercury


“The group’s infectious electro pop — and particularly Kim Schifino’s frenetic drumming — propelled the room’s mood into euphoric overdrive. Over-stimulated teenagers could not have found a better soundtrack for a night of collective misbehavior.” – Daily Press
