M83 Hitting The Road, Releasing New Album

Before the conveying of any actual information, kindly give us a moment to collect ourselves after viewing the jaw-dropping collection of vintage analog gear in the photo above. OK, thanks, we’re alright now. Anyway, Anthony Gonzalez, better known to fans of his dreamy electronic pop sounds as M83, has announced that he will be hitting the road hard and heavy this year, starting out in North America in April. In addition playing a batch of theaters and such, he’ll be making some major festival appearances; Coachella in California and The Governor’s Ball in New York are both on his agenda for 2016.

He’ll be wending his way toward Europe and South America in the summer too, stopping in Spain, Portugal, Germany and more. Ticket pre-sale happens January 13 at the M83 website, and the general sale date is the 15th. And not only are there more shows to be announced in the coming weeks, there’s a new album on the way as well. What does the man himself have to say about his next record? The phrases “more fun and fresh,” “a lot of eclecticism,” and “unexpected guests” will have to suffice for the moment.
