, Staff

Bassnectar has revealed plans for a fall tour in support of his brand new album, Noise Vs Beauty. After a series of festival appearances, the EDM star will embark on a nationwide headlining tour in October. He’ll stop in Massachusetts for a performance at the Tsongas Center in Lowell on Saturday, October 11. Tickets for the concert will go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. through the venue’s box office and website for $35 and $39.50. Paper Diamond, Kill Paris and Son of Kick will also perform.

For the upcoming tour, according to a press release, Bassnectar is promising fans an “extensive multimedia production that gives concert-goers the most immersive experience possible along with an endless list of special effects”.

Released earlier this week, Noise Vs Beauty follows 2012’s Vava Voom. Lead single “You & Me” (featuring W. Darling) is streaming below. While recording the new album, the producer/DJ (born Lorin Ashton) enlisted several special guests collaborators.

“I ended up with 12 of the flimsiest songs I’ve ever had and just started taking them to different bands, vocalists and guitarists and remixing it with them,” explained Ahston in a recent interview with Billboard. “I’d say, ‘Why don’t we try this cord progression?’ and get their vocals down, and have this really cool indie-rock sound, then it take it to someone else and come away with this real dirty, kind of mad-scientist vibe. I wanted to approach the album like, if I was hired by a band to do a remix of my own song, what would it sound like.”

Bassnectar has also pledged to donate one dollar from every ticket sold from the upcoming tour to charity as part of his $1 Per Basshead initiative, which has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars in the past several years.
