Following the release of his sophomore album Hyperion earlier this year, Gesaffelstein returns today with a new EP. NOVO SONIC SYSTEM is available now via Columbia Records – listen HERE and see full track list below.
The new EP arrives ahead of Gesaffelstein’s U.S. headline tour this fall. The Requiem Tour kicks off on November 7 in San Francisco and includes two sold-out shows in Los Angeles followed by stops in major markets including Chicago, Boston and New York before wrapping in Atlanta on November 27. Tickets are on sale now; please check HERE for additional information and see full list of tour dates below.
The upcoming shows follow Gesaffelstein’s epic return to the live stage at Coachella and Governors Ball. The tour will feature all new live production, which Gesaffelstein debuted at Coachella in the darkest performance ever. Praised by Paper, who noted that “few acts managed to make as big an impact as Gesaffelstein,” and hailed as “awe-inspiring” by Billboard, the sonically and visually stunning show featured intense lighting design and a masked Gesaffelstein performing against a wall of deep darkness. His set features the exclusive use of Vantablack VBx2, the darkest substance made by man – read more about Gesaffelstein’s use of the substance in The Verge.
Gesaffelstein’s sophomore album Hyperion was released in March and features singles “Blast Off” ft. Pharrell Williams and “Lost in the Fire” ft. The Weeknd, which has been certified Gold. Listen to Hyperion HERE.
