Shigeto and Beacon Team Up for North American Tour

Shigeto and Beacon Team Up for North American Tour
When Detroit beatmaker Shigeto announced No Better Time Than Now, he noted that his pivotal 2012 included a massive amount of tour dates. His 2013 is shaping up to be similarly busy, he's since scheduled a huge heap of shows in support of the new disc.

Over the summer, Shigeto will complete a number of previously announced European gigs before linking up with Ghostly International labelmate Beacon for a North American tour. In late August, the pair will embark on a leg that lasts all the way until October, hitting up a pile of U.S. cities, as well as playing Canadian shows in Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver.

See the schedule below.

Scroll past the itinerary to stream Shigeto's newly unveiled album cut "Ringleader," which matches chimes and tropical plinks and plonks with a beat-driven electronic arrangement.

As previously reported, No Better Time Than Now will be out on August 20 through Ghostly International.
