Miami Horror Announces Debut “Illimunation” and US Tour


Melbourne Australia’s psychedelic indie-electronic adventurers Miami Horror are pleased to announce the release of their debut, Illumination, out August 24th. The release comes at the heels of two years of teeth-cutting live shows. In conjunction with the album release, they’ll be bringing their live show to the states throughout September.

For a special sneak preview, check out the entire album via Ustream this week on Once on the road, the band will stream parts of the tour, including some live sets.

While Miami Horror began as just one synthesizer-obsessed producer huddled over a laptop, mastermind Ben Plant rewired Miami Horror’s genetic makeup, depositing the talents of Josh Moriarty, Aaron Shanahan & Daniel Whitechurch to form a new live band persona.

And it worked. Since the switch, Miami Horror has played unmissable sets at Australia’s biggest festivals, not to mention some A-list support slot call ups for everyone from Phoenix, Friendly Fires and La Roux to a hand-picked hook up from Lily Allen.

Hunkering down in Ben’s home studio in Melbourne, Illumination’s recording saw them call in a cast of guest stars, including Swedish singer MAI, Melbourne based chanteuse Kimbra, Dappled Cities’ wordsmith Tim Derricourt for a lyrical assist and also Neon Indian & Vega prodigy Alan Palomo, who added his distinctive haze to multiple tunes.
