Perturbator Announces First Full North American Tour

Perturbator, the French ‘80s-infused electro outfit who kicked off 2016 with a seven-date, sold out swing through North America, will return for a month of dates this fall, launching the tour on Sept. 5 in Denver, Colorado. All tour dates are listed below. 

“Synthwave, darksynth, neon metal – no matter what you call it, this retroactive branch of electronic music kicks serious ass, and nobody synthesizes like James Kent,” said Noisey in a 2016 feature that arrived upon the release of Kent’s (aka Perturbator) most recent full-length, The Uncanny Valley. The 13-track release won accolades worldwide, from France’s New Noise who awarded the Parisian artist the cover of their May issue, to the UK’s The Sun (“This is the soundtrack to the greatest Eighties film noir never made”) to NPR who praised Kent’s adept attention to detail, saying his music showcases “the contrast of its shimmering beauty against an industrial wasteland.”
