Miami Horror Returns to North America for Tour and Performances at SXSW 2011

“…a vice I’m unable to kick.. [Miami Horror’s] songs are saccharin drenched, heart pulsing and buzzworthingly yummy thanks to lyrics and synths which cause an immediate sugar high” – New York Post, ‘You Must Know’
“…Miami Horror, the Aussie outfit who make music so beautiful it hurts….” – Black Book

“Miami Horror manages to stand out among the clutter, though, by doing it just as well, if not better, than everyone else.”- The Dallas Observer

“As a debut album, Illumination is a wonderful start of something we hope to be around for a long time.”
– Chicagoist

Melbourne-based psych-electronic group Miami Horror have announced their return to North America for a coast to coast tour, making stops in Canada, Mexico and SXSW along the way. The four-piece embarked on a successful first tour of the states this past fall behind their debut album, Illumination, which is available on iTunes in the US. The Australian release features a 2CD limited edition, including a bonus album of Miami Horror remixed by YACHT, Shazam, and Fred Falke amongst others.

While the band began as just one synthesizer-obsessed producer huddled over a laptop, Miami Horror has since become fleshed out into a full live band, playing 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.

Named one of the most blogged about artists by The Independent (UK), their remix of Gorillaz’ “Empire Ants” most recently topped the Hype Machine charts. Be sure to see what all the buzz is about when they return stateside this Spring!
