Today RÜFÜS DU SOL – one of the world’s preeminent live electronic bands – have announced a fall tour, bringing their titanic live show to some of North America’s most prized venues from coast-to-coast. This news is accompanied by the reveal of their much-anticipated album’s name SOLACE, of which the tour takes the same title.

The SOLACE Fall Tour will touch down at seminal venues such as Los Angeles’ Shrine Expo Hall (3 nights), New York’s Terminal 5, San Francisco’s Bill Graham Civic Auditorium, Denver’s The Fillmore Auditorium, House of Blues Boston and Houston, and more plus a massive festival play at Voodoo Music & Arts Experience in New Orleans.

This tour announcement comes on the wake of the band’s unveiling of the first track, No Place, off the album which marks the first new music from the trio in more than two years.

Comprised of members Tyrone Lindqvist, Jon George, and James Hunt, RÜFÜS DU SOL occupy the intersection of entrancing indie music and intelligent electronica. It is through this seamless transcendence of styles that their own sonic realm has unfolded; a landscape painted with the club culture of yesteryear and a poignant yet infectious ability to be ever in the moment.

The band’s debut album, ATLAS, reached No. 1 on the Australian charts and reaped Platinum status – successes that were repeated with its follow-up record, Bloom. Released in 2016, Bloom offered such iconic singles as “You Were Right” and “Innerbloom,” and launched RÜFÜS DU SOL on a two-year international tour, playing over 100 sold-out shows across 13 countries.

“The Australian trio knows how to set a mood, and sell it well,” noted Billboard while MTV tipped RÜFÜS DU SOL as “poised for a worldwide breakout.”

RÜFÜS DU SOL has spent the past year in Venice, CA, writing and recording their third album, which is largely influenced by the stark desert landscapes of California and their experiences on the road.

“It feels like a new RÜFÜS,” the trio says. “We are inspired by our new home out here, by the people we’ve met and the music we’ve heard along the way. We’ve got a refreshed sense of ambition and cannot wait to share our creation with the world.”
