Electric Guest Announce Headlining Fall Tour

“Dreamy” – The Fader
“Pure emotion– Billboard
“We wish LA Electric Guest would write a sweet song about us” – i-D 

June 19th, 2017—  After wrapping up a successful tour with Portugal The Man, Los Angeles based duo Asa Taccone and Matthew Compton, together known as Electric Guest, will kick off their second U.S. headlining tour of the year this fall in Las Vegas on August 30th at the Bunkhouse Saloon. The band will hit major cities such as Chicago, Portland, as well as returning to New York City after two previous sold out shows (full listing below). Tickets will go on sale Friday June 23rd at 10AM local time.


“On the original version of ‘Oh Devil’ the chorus had some inaudible mumbling that I had sung as a joke,” frontman Asa Taccone explains, sharing the history behind the track’s new edit. “We tweaked it out and made it sound like a sample but we always wanted it to be clearer. We saw Devin Di Dakta on this Jamaican TV show called Magnum Kings & Queens of Dancehall and loved his stuff so we wrote lyrics to the mumbling and sent it to him. He recorded it in Jamaica and we flipped when we heard it.”

The group’s long-awaited, sophomore album ‘Plural’—released in February—displays Electric Guest’s off-kilter blend of electronic, pop and R&B with an even more adventurous spirit than on 2012’s ‘Mondo.’ Written during a period of self-reflection, ‘Plural’ embraces Taccone and Compton’s original instincts, forgoing detailed arrangements and falsettos in favor of a back-to-basics approach – strong, natural vocals, intuitive musical instinct, and unbridled inspiration. The result is a sonic mélange that sounds as if it’s from both the past and future, layering everything from 80s synths to iPhone drum machines to Latin and Caribbean percussion.
