Zeds Dead Announce "Altered States" Tour

Zeds Dead Announce "Altered States" Tour
While Zeds Dead issued their Hot Sauce EP at the start of the year, the Toronto DJ duo are poised to keep things spicy this fall with their "Altered States" tour.

The outfit confirmed the North American trip in a press release, revealing that the tour kicks off September 18 at Winnipeg's Garrick Centre. "Altered States" hits up both sides of the U.S./Canada border, with additional dates on our turf taking place in Ontario, BC and Alberta.

"The name 'Altered States' is all about how music has the power to change the way you feel and alter your perceptions," the band wrote in a statement. "Plus we're both big on wordplay and multiple meanings, and altered states can also be interpreted in that we're touring through 'the states' (united states) and altering peoples state of mind as we go."

Mind you, the double entendre doesn't work for the dates in their native land, but we'll give the dudes points for trying.

Joining Zeds Dead for the bulk of the trip will be Paper Diamond, Green Lantern and New York producer Branchez, while artists like Pretty Lights, RJD2, Krewella and Seven Lions will also play some dates. You can find out more about the lineup specifics over here. More dates are also expected to be announced.
