New York City based duo MS MR will embark on their first North American headline tour this fall in support of their critically-acclaimed, debut album Secondhand Rapture.  The tour will start September 16 in Montreal and will take the band across the U.S. with stops in Philadelphia, New York City, Boston, Minneapolis, Chicago, and Los Angeles (full list of dates below).  Additionally, the duo will hit the global festival circuit this summer with performances at Glastonbury, Splendour in the Grass, Lollapalooza, Rock En Seine, Outside lands and Austin City Limits.
MS MR made their late night television debut last month with a performance of their single “Hurricane” on the Late Show With David Letterman.  The band performed “Hurricane” along with the rest of Secondhand Rapture on their recent west coast run opening for CSS.  The Daily Beast noted, at the duo’s sold-out album release show at Bowery Ballroom, that “Plapinger’s layered vocals are accentuated by Hershenow’s swirling, swelling electro-pop production replete with synths, drums, and electronic beats” delivering what Time Out New York calls “a finely crafted work of dream pop.” To catch a preview of what’s in store for the tour; check out MS MR’s live show at the SXSW Hype Hotel on Baeble Music:
MS MR’s debut album Secondhand Rapture is comprised of 12 sweeping tracks cholk-full of the duo’s compelling blend of cinematic pop.  The duo was recently inducted into MTV’s ‘Artist To Watch’ spotlight series, named as one of The Guardian’s ‘One to Watch’ and noted by Teen Vogue as the “next big musical duo.”  MS MR’s debut album includes the previously released track “Bones,” which was prominently featured in the Game Of Thrones season trailer.  Produced by Max Hershenow, with additional production and mix by Tom Elmhirst, the duo co-wrote Secondhand Rapture over the course of 2011 in Brooklyn, NY.
