TECHNO PUNK BOYS NOIZE ANNOUNCES NORTH AMERICAN TOUR
Alex Ridha aka BOYS NOIZE recently announced a 15-date North-American tour. The trek starts on October 5th on the West Coast in Los Angeles and will go via Vancouver and Seattle to playing two nights in New York, followed by Miami, Boston, Suwannee Hulaween in Florida and ends with Austin's Sound on Sound (ex-Fun Fun Fun Fest). The tickets are available HERE.
BOYS NOIZE performed the all new live show last month at Brooklyn's sold-out Studio E and earlier Barcelona's Sonar Festival had the world premiere, which you can see/share in a 35 minute clip HERE. BOYS NOIZE conceived the spectacle together with visual artists SUS BOY and LIL INTERNET, exploring a thematic narrative inspired by cyberpunk, 80's industrial and surveillance in contemporary society.
Before the start of the tour, there will be more new music and videos released, including BOYS NOIZE’s contributed music to the Oliver Stone movie Snowden.
Further, his most recent work, MAYDAY, is BOYS NOIZE´s most dynamic album to date, broadcasting live from the maelstrom. Collaborations with Poliça, Hudson Mohawke, Benga, Remy Banks, Spank Rock, and some special secret guests broaden the range while maintaining the classic rugged-n-raw BOYS NOIZE style.
The album title MAYDAY refers, appropriately, to the international distress signal. “MAYDAY is my warning signal against blind categorization and conformist synchronization,” says Ridha. “A call for individuality and diversity – and a tribute to outsiders.” MAYDAY is also a statement of Ridha’s commitment to the album as an art form – an almost rebellious stance these days. In an album, an artist can map the entire breadth of a particular phase of his work, capturing much more than a mere snapshot.
