Sylvan Esso will return to touring across North America next spring, with a handful of concert dates revealed from the electro-pop duo on Wednesday morning. The band, made up of singer Amelia Meath and producer Nick Sanborn, spent much of their spring and summer on the road in promotion of their sophomore album, What Now, and will continue their busy schedule throughout March and early April next year.
The 16 newly announced dates will see the band starting out in the warmer climate of Honolulu on Feb. 13, before coming over to the mainland U.S. and Canada for the remainder of their early springtime run starting on March 17 in Atlanta. Notable stops on the spring tour include performances at Dallas’ Bomb Factory on March 20 and The National in Richmond, Va. on April 6. Pre-sale for tickets to select shows on the 2018 run will begin on Thursday, Nov. 9 at 10 a.m. local time, and can be found by clicking here.
What Now was released back on April 28 via Loma Vista Recordings, and has since received pretty favorable reviews from popular outlets including Spin and Pitchfork.
The duo broke onto the scene back in 2013 and released their debut LP a year later. Since then, Meath and Sandborn have become fan favorites in the festival circuit, having been able to carve out their own niche sound and look as part of the synth-pop wave that’s taken over the world of commercial indie music these days. Their radio-friendly sound and stripped-down production style have also enabled some of their early singles like “Hey Mami” and “Coffee” to perform quite well in the realm of online streaming and curated playlists.
