Electro-jazz outfit known as KNOWER are headed out on tour this spring and summer, and they’ll be bringing a full band out on the road with them for a handful of dates when they do. The band often consists of drummer/keyboardist Louis Cole and singer Genevieve Artadi, but they do perform with other musicians when the situation calls for it, much to the delight of everyone in attendance.
KNOWER are currently scheduled to perform across Japan and Australia starting later this month. They’ll return to North America for a select run of concerts (mostly jazz festivals) in the U.S. and Canada in late June, but will then head back overseas for more international dates throughout the remainder of the summer. The band plans to return Stateside again in late August for a show at the Gothic Theatre just outside of Denver on Aug. 30, followed by some northeast gigs at New York City’s Brooklyn Bowl and Boston’s The Sinclair in late September. Tickets for select shows on their “full band” tour schedule are available for purchase now, or will begin general on-sale on May 4, and can be found by clicking here.
KNOWER have been on the road throughout much of 2018 so far, having started their busy performance schedule back in late January. More recently, they returned to North America for a mix of full band and duo shows at venues like Los Angeles’ Teragram Ballroom, as well as Denver’s Red Rocks Amphitheatre alongside Vulfpeck just last weekend.
Cole, who lives in Los Angeles when he and Artadi aren’t busy touring around the globe, performed on a few songs heard on Thundercat’s highly-acclaimed 2017 Drunk LP, in addition to co-writing two of its tracks in "Bus in These Streets" and "Jameel's Space Ride." Prior to that, the band had released their own new album back in 2016 with the 12-track Life.
