No EDM duo wears the blood red shoes quite like The Presets do.
OK, so they’re not technically wearing blood red shoes, but, it’s a cool way to get attention for an upcoming tour, which happens to be the theme when The Presets hit the road this summer for a tour around the world.
So, who are The Presets?
Hailing from Sydney, Australia, The Presents have their tentacles firmly plugged into the dominant EDM scene. Coming together in 2003, Julian Hamilton and Kim Moyes have been wowing crowds Down Under for the past 15 years, using such trick-of-the-trades such as electropop, dance-punk, and synthpop to get the crowd moving and grooving.
After spending the first two years honing their skills, The Presents hit paydirt right out of the gate with their 2005 debut LP Beams, and three years later, the duo would hit number one in Australia with their sophomore LP Apocalypso. In 2012, the duo would finally hit the American charts with Pacifica, which fell just short of the Top 10 of the Billboard Dance charts (#11) and gave them a slice of the American EDM market.
This June, The Presents will release their fourth LP, Hi Viz, which is much anticipated in EDM circles; and to promote the upcoming album. The duo will hit the road on the Blood Red Shoes tour (combined with the Hi Viz Tour in Australia) to show the world that they have truly arrived.
