Electronic music pioneers New Order announced a brief U.S. tour, which will kick off Aug. 23 in St. Paul with stops including Cleveland, Long Beach, Washington, D.C. Toronto and two shows in Hawaii. They'll also headline the InCuya Music Festival in Cleveland on August 25, a two-day event that will also feature The Avett Brothers, SZA, AWOLNation, Booker T. Jones and Cake.
While New Order has made their visits to the States more frequent in recent years, Bernard Sumner and company made sure to add some unique stops to their tour., with their St. Paul date being the first time they will play a show in Minnesota in 29 years.
New Order also recently announced via their Twitter page a partnership with Doc Martens for limited edition designs based on the cover for their albums Power, Corruption and Lies and Technique. Explains Doc Marten on their website for the Technique design, "This boot celebrates the pop-culture influence of the iconic post-punk electronic band New Order. A recreation of the cover art of 1989's Technique, the boot features a cherub statue against a bright ombre background, representing the hedonism of the time."
Tickets for New Order's tour will go on sale beginning Friday, June 22.
