With the momentum of their biggest year to date behind them, indie-electronic titans RÜFÜS DU SOL today announced they will be crossing North America again this fall, bringing the emotive sounds of a generation with them. The headlining tour will see the band touch down in November with stops in New York, Boston, Seattle, Portland, Toronto and more, a fitting return for one of 2016’s most talked about acts. More dates to be announced will make this their most comprehensive North American tour to date.
It has been a seminal year for RÜFÜS DU SOL, who have channeled the popularity of their sophomore album Bloom, released on ODESZA’sForeign Family Collective, to emerge as a crowd filling force as of recent. Between their breakthrough Coachella performances, a sold-out Red Rocks debut alongside ODESZA, and a packed summer festival calendar including shows at Electric Forest, Panorama, and Firefly with more on the horizon, their center-stage positioning has become abundantly clear to fans and critics alike.
The true breadth of RÜFÜS DU SOL’s triumphant year was felt far beyond the borders of North America, with fans treated to their sonic mastery from Australia to London – Berlin to Paris and back again. The magic of their world tour can be witnessed in this stellar timelapse taken at their singular hillside performances at Brisbane Riverstage. Watch Here.
In celebration of a stellar summer and massive Fall Tour ahead, RÜFÜS DU SOL have returned to Bloom with a remix package of standout track ‘Be With You’. The sentimental storytelling of ‘Be With You’ has offered a pristine remix canvas for the likes of Booka Shade, Friend Within, Sondrio and Stereogamous, each taking the original in their own direction. It should be no surprise that the package has earned the support of modern music heavyweights like Annie Mac, Pete Tong, and Zane Lowe.
Only through boundless talent and raw determination has RÜFÜS DU SOL arrived on the global stage, a testament to the deep sense of belonging embedded into their songwriting and within their spirits. Even now, at the helm of an international sound, the band pushes forward still on their endless journey to bewitch and beguile fans around the world.
Here are what some others had to say about Bloom:
“Bloom…features 11 tautly crafted dance tunes with a European edge. RÜFÜS DU SOL are poised for a big 2016 Stateside”
“Like their fellow Aussies Cut Copy before them, RÜFÜS DU SOL have managed to strike that perfect balance between melodic pop music and propulsive dance music, existing in this phantom zone that few other acts can straddle so naturally.”
“Already stars in their native Australia, live-dance act RÜFÜS DU SOL have been charming their way across America with tunes that fit somewhere between sunshine-laden house, pop melodies, and an indie sensibility.”
“Meet RÜFÜS DU SOL, three dudes from Sydney making waves worldwide with their indie dance band beats.”
“This alternative dance group creates an unclassifiable genre of electronic music as they are always reshaping and evolving their sound.”
“‘You Were Right’ crests and falls like a warm Indian Ocean wave, with gently synthesized screeches and ululations in the background, as if it were the soundtrack to a rainforest dance party.”
