Röyksopp Announce North American Dates, Play Toronto and Montreal
Published Nov 19, 2010Norwegian electronic artists Röyksopp may have dragged their feet on releasing Senior, the all-instrumental follow-up to Junior, but the group are hoping to make things up to fans via a new video and some North American tour dates.
Röyksopp have released the short film Senior Living, which jumbles a number of Senior tracks with footage of girls running around a barren urban landscape. The 11-minute clip, which can be seen below, has its fair share of creeped-out moments, including a dog licking a discarded skull, crosses being tossed from building tops and a scene where the teens co-mingle with some zombies in an abandoned building.
If the spooked-out video isn't your thing, but you enjoy Röyksopp's minimalist electro numbers, the announcement of a short North American tour, including stops in Toronto and Montreal, should be right up your alley.
Though Senior is already available in the digital realm, a physical release of the album will pop up in stores next Tuesday (November 23).
