Klaxons plan stateside tour

, Staff

The Klaxons have revealed plans for a stateside tour this fall. After shows across Europe and Asia, the English rockers will cross the pond for a tour of North America that stops at Boston’s Paradise Rock Club on Friday, September 24. Tickets for the 18+ show are now on sale through Live Nation for $15. Baby Monster will open the show.

The London-based band will be touring in support of their second album, Surfing the Void, which hits stores week. After unsuccessfully bouncing between producers Tony Visconti and Focus, the Klaxons reunited with original producer James Ford in 2009 to begin recording the new album. However, the band’s label Polydor rejected the album’s release, calling it too experimental and telling the band to re-record several parts. After joining with producer Ross Robinson, the band reworked their material and Surfing the Void finally became a reality in 2010.

In an interview with The Quietus, bassist Jamie Reynolds praised the confidence that Robinson brought to the band. “It made Stefan [Halperin] and Simon [Taylor-Davis] much better musicians, and gave me the confidence as a songwriter, and James an all-round super-confidence,” he said. “That didn’t exist for us before – we were just these bratty kids that were going ‘blaaaaaaaaah’ like a bunch of idiots.”
