Simian Mobile Disco Kick Off North American Live Tour This Week In Los Angeles; Announce In-Store DJ Set at Mount Analog in LA



written by

Simian Mobile Disco–the acclaimed UK electronic duo comprised of James Ford and Jas Shaw–kick off their North American live tour in support of their recent full length album Unpatterns and recently released EP A Form Of Change this Friday, November 30 in Los Angeles at the Fonda Theatre. The A Form Of Change World Tour will hit twelve North American cities before concluding on the two sailings of the S.S. Coachella next month. SMD has also announced an in-store DJ set at Mount Analog in Los Angeles on Thursday, November 29 from 6-8pm. To celebrate the kickoff of the tour, the duo released a live version of their classic track “Wooden” from their recent show in Belfast, Northern Ireland.

SMD have also created the new Tumblr site SMDLive.tumblr.com to focus on their live show from both musical and visual perspectives. It features exclusive content, including this video from the debut of their live show at the FYF Festival in Los Angeles earlier this fall

Fans have the chance to win live tickets through a Tumblr-exclusive competition. Running throughout their tour, the “re-blog and follow” contest will allow fans to win a pair of tickets to one SMD show of their choice. To enter, fans should follow SMD LIVE (http://smdlive.tumblr.com), re-blog the FYF 2012 clip and leave a comment with the Date and City of the desired show. Before each date, SMD will chose one winner who will receive 2 tickets to the show (no transport or accommodations provided).

Simian Mobile Disc recently released the A Form Of Change EP on Wichita Recordings. The EP comes from the same recording sessions as their critically praised album Unpatterns, released earlier this year. The collection of four tracks is another sterling example of Simian Mobile Disco’s restless creativity, and their yen for refining and redefining the parameters of their own musical landscape with almost laserlike precision, following Brian Eno’s maxim that “repetition is a form of change.”
