Disclosure will return to North America this spring for its second headline tour in support of Caracal (Capitol Records), which received a GRAMMY nomination for Best Dance/Electronic Album. The run, which will kick off on April 6 at Auditorio Banamex in Monterrey, Mexico, will include evenings at Revention Music Center in Houston (May 10), Colorado’s Red Rocks Amphitheatre (May 17) and Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco (May 20). Tickets available today, February 5, via Disclosure’s site HERE.

The U.K. duo – comprising brothers Guy and Howard Lawrence – will also perform at numerous festivals, including Coachella, Sasquatch, Boston Calling and Firefly. Disclosure’s fall 2015 tour – their largest production yet – opened at Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena and wrapped up at New York City’s Madison Square Garden.

“The band has found its sweet spot of slower tempos and riled-up soul that lends their live sets such a distinct pace,” observed the Los Angeles Times in a live review. Entertainment Weekly said, “Each of the Lawrence brothers had his own U-shaped arsenal of instruments…Disclosure built every song it played from the ground up.”

While in the States, they made their “Saturday Night Live” debut, performing two tracks from Caracal.

Caracal (Capitol Records), Disclosure’s sophomore album, debuted at No. 1 on the Official Albums chart in the U.K. and within the Top 10 of the Billboard 200.Singles “Holding On” featuring Gregory Porter and “Omen” featuring Sam Smith topped Billboard’s Dance Club Songs chart. “Magnets” featuring Lorde is currently climbing multiple charts and was named one of the best songs of 2015 by Rolling Stone. Other featured artists on the album include The Weeknd, Miguel, Lion Babe, Nao and Kwabs.  Caracal is the follow-up to Disclosure’s 2013 debut, Settle, which also topped the U.K. Albums chart and was nominated for a GRAMMY.

Rolling Stone hailed Caracal as “lush…the crown jewel of a year in which they’ve moved steadily inward from pop’s cutting edge to its glittering center.” The New York Times noted, “‘Caracal’… includes collaborations with the sort of deeply resonant vocalists that have become a Disclosure staple.” USA Today praised “Magnets” featuring Lorde as “hypnotic” and “Nocturnal” featuring The Weeknd as “sleek.” The brothers spoke about their musical roots – Guy began playing drums at age three and Howard has played bass since he was seven – and their creative process in an NPR interview, which can be heard HERE.
