CASIOKIDS ANNOUNCE NORTH AMERICAN TOUR Prep “En Vill Hest” Single feat. Remixes from Prins Thomas, diskJokke

“Their live shows have been heralded as unbridled parties complete with puppet shows and visual projections serving as compensation for the language barrier – but Casiokids courageously process their genre-sloshing dance tunes across the ocean knowing quite well that language is secondary when you can make people dance.” – American Songwriter

“…embracing their own sort of joyous electro-pop sound, Casiokids may be the hottest dance act currently out of Norway” – PopMatters

“[Casiokids] have constructed a record of 21st century pop hues that puts fellow Scandinavians like Peter, Bjorn and John to shame…shinier and brighter, full of wholesome, computer-spun catchiness…you never know what’s being said, but it sounds like the secrets of the universe, or at least instructions on how to unlock the wonders of the virtual world..” – Agit Reader

“…One of the most uplifting records to drop this year” – WFUV/The Alternate Side

In support of the recent release of their US debut Topp stemning på lokal bar (Polyvinyl), Bergen, Norway’s Casiokids will be heading to the states this August. They’ll be returning to North America after a tour that led them down to SXSW this past spring. Recently hitting #29 on the CMJ Top 200 charts, Topp stemning på lokal bar features the incredibly catchy dance-floor single, “Fot i hose (Fits like a glove)”, as well as “Finn bikkjen! (Find the dog!)”, whose surreal, dance-filled video premiered on Pitchfork.

Before heading out on tour, Casiokids will release a digital single for their track “En Vill Hest” due August 10th (Polyvinyl). The single will feature the album version of the track, remixes by both diskJokke and Prins Thomas, and a music video.

Discovered by former tour mates (and now labelmates) of Montreal, Casiokids put on a theatrical live show — incorporating a blend of shadow puppets, video projections and animal costumes — that is not to be missed. Whether playing for the truly young (as during a 12-date kindergarten tour in Norway) or the young at heart (at almost all of Europe’s largest festivals and on tour with Hot Chip), Casiokids generate the kind of unrestrained party mood that inevitably transforms any audience into a joyous, dancing mass.

Casiokids will be announcing more US dates shortly, bringing their frenzied live show far and wide.
