This March, The Presets will be performing a string of shows including Snowball Music Festival and an unofficial event during SXSW. The Presets are available for press, including two full days of promo in Los Angeles.
The Presets are touring in support of their 2012 album Pacifica, which reached Gold in Australia, #1 on the iTunes Dance chart, and #3 on the US iTunes Electronic chart. Featuring ten prismatic, synth-laced songs, Pacifica sees the Presets boldly venture into new, uncharted musical territories. Traversing both light and shade in energy and emotion, the album was produced by the band – Julian Hamilton and Kim Moyes – and mixed in Los Angeles with Tony Hoffer. Released to critical acclaim, Pacifica contains the hit singles “Promises,” “Ghosts,” and “Youth in Trouble.”
It’s been over four years since The Presets captured the world’s imagination with their blitzkrieg of
an album, the sophomore Apocalypso. Spawning five hit singles and exceeding Triple Platinum
sales in Australia, Apocalypso set dizzying new heights for dance music in Australia. The single “My People” stayed in the ARIA charts for over 75 weeks, making it the longest charting Australian single in ARIA chart history.
The Presets were recently awarded Single of the Year (Readers’ Choice) for “Ghosts” at the 4th annual Rolling Stone Awards.
Check out a live performance from The Presets at Hordern Pavillion HERE, and be sure to catch them this March!
