Published Jun 05, 2012Swedish electro pop duo Niki & the Dove are getting ready to seep into North America's consciousness this year. The outfit drop their debut album Instinct digitally via Sub Pop next Tuesday (June 12), with physical formats arriving on August 7. After that, they'll be criss-crossing around the continent for their first full North American tour.
While the two-piece will be playing Brooklyn's Northside Fest on June 14, Niki & the Dove's serious tour schedule will start up August 31 at L.A.'s the Echo. The band then head up north for their first-ever appearance in Vancouver, playing the Electric Owl on September 1.
The Sub Pop act will make their way back to the U.S. for a string of shows supporting '80s-style pop wizard Twin Shadow, but they'll make their way back into Canada as headliners when they play Toronto's Drake Hotel on October 2. You can catch the rest of the details down below.
As previously reported, Instinct collects new numbers with previously released Niki & the Dove tracks like "The Drummer," "Last Night," "Mother Protect," "The Fox" and "The Gentle Roar."
