Kick Off North American Tour This Saturday May 5

 

Rolling Stone Premieres Tomas Barfod’s Remix of “Fall”

Earlier today, Rolling Stone exclusively premiered Tomas Barfod’s exquisite remix of The Presets’ “Fall.” Head over to Rolling Stone to grab a free download of the track, and learn about the inspiration behind the tune.

 

This premiere comes just in time for the start of The Presets North American tour this May 2013, with Dragonette and Classixx. The tour kicks off this Saturday in Washington DC, and will see the bands visiting cities across the US and Canada throughout the next month. 

 

Although coming from opposite sides of the world (Australia and Canada respectively), both The Presets and Dragonette share recognition globally for their electric live shows – hailed by audiences and critics as infectious, dynamic and irrepressible.

 

The Presets are touring in support of their recently released album Pacifica. Featuring ten prismatic, synth-laced songs, Pacifica ventures boldly into new, uncharted musical territories, traversing both light and shade in energy and emotion.

 

Fresh from US dates with Major Lazer, Dragonette will be showcasing material from their latest long player Bodyparts. From emotion-packed ballads to fist-pumping anthems, Bodyparts fuses heavy-hitting electro rhythms with pulsing beats, and sing-along choruses.

 

The bands will be joined in most markets by acclaimed LA duo, Classixx, performing tracks live from their upcoming debut Hanging Gardens, a svelte selection of impossibly sunny grooves, expertly crafted for road trips, pool parties and dance clubs.
