Architecture in Helsinki Head to North America on World Tour

Architecture in Helsinki Head to North America on World Tour
Last month, experimental Aussie collective Architecture in Helsinki announced that they had just finished work on Moment Bends, their first album in four years. Referred to as "a dialogue with the dance floor," the album is touted to weave elements of Italo disco with the Melbourne band's distinct pop characteristics.

While we can't confirm what any of these venues have to offer as far as dance floors go, fans will have numerous chances to cut a rug to Architecture in Helsinki's tunes during their upcoming world tour. Starting the trip in their native Australia, the band then make their way through Europe, head back to Australia and then leave home again for North America. Canadian dates include Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal. You can check out the full list below.

As previously reported, Moment Bends will be released May 3 in North America via Cooperative/Downtown. Check out the video for dancey new single "Beep Beep" below.
