Tonight, Alison Wonderland will launch her summer U.S. headline tour with a sold-out show at the Ogden Theatre in Denver, CO. A second Denver show has been added on August 4. The run includes concerts at Seattle’s WaMu Theatre (August 10) and Shrine Expo Hall in Los Angeles (August 17). See below for itinerary. Tickets are available at alisonwonderland.com.

The outing follows Wonderland’s performances at numerous festivals. Run The Trap hailed her set at Belgium’s Tomorrowland as “a work of art, unforgettable.” Dancing Astronaut named her as one of the “artists you can’t miss at Spring Awakening” and ran this Q&A with WonderlandThe Chicago Tribune said, “Alison Wonderland, the only woman appearing on a main stage this year, ushered in the evening with a buoyant set that featured her singles ‘Church’ and ‘Easy.’ Billboard ranked her performance among the Top 5 Dance Highlights at Coachella and noted, “Wonderland came to the table with nothing but a home run on the menu.”

Naming her as one of the “breakout musicians ready to rock your summer,” Elle observed, ‘Wonderland’ punctuates lyrics about self-worth and self-care with soul-thumping beats.” She is touring in support of her sophomore album, AWAKE (Astralwerks), which entered Billboard’s Top Dance/Electronic Albums chart at No. 1 a feat she also accomplished with her self-titled 2015 debut album, Run.

Wonderland brought her writing and producing skills to each of AWAKE’s 14 tracks and was joined in the studio by a red-hot roster of collaborators, including Joel Little (Lorde), Illangelo (The Weeknd), Party Favor (Mad Decent) and long-time friend Lido. Features include Chief Keef on “Dreamy Dragon” and Trippie Redd on “High.”

One of the latest remixes from AWAKE is from Valentino Khan. One of EDM’s biggest names, Khan has collaborated with the likes of Diplo, Skrillex and Steve Aoki and regularly flips the biggest tracks from the world’s biggest stars. His thunderous remix of “Good Enough” pushes up the BPM to fever pitch, combining his impeccable production chops with the ghosts of UK bassline and hardcore. Check out Khan’s up for it, rave-ready remix of “Good Enough” HERE.

EDM Tunes praised London-based duo Billion’s ‘dance ready remix’ of “Easy.” Billion comprising Ed Butler and Robbie Lamond are known for their eclectic blend of garage, house and techno and have earned support from the BBC’s Skream, Annie Mac and Mistajam. Download / stream “Easy” (Billion Remix) HERE.

Kaivon who found his audience with a striking series of singles based on the theme of rebirth has also remixed “Easy.” In a track premiere, YourEDM.com said, “Kaivon keeps the emotional tone while pumping up the energy just a bit, turning the more ballad-like original into a future bass climax. It’s not hard to imagine the pyrotechnics that might accompany this track in a set, or the reaction from the crowd when it’s dropped.” Download / stream “Easy” (Kaivon Remix) HERE.

Denver-based artist Nick Miller, known professionally as Illenium, has signed to Astralwerks and makes his debut on the renowned dance label with the highly personal single Take You Down. After hearing from many fans about how his music has gotten them through dark periods, he felt compelled to share how music saved his life, too, following a heroin overdose six years ago.

In a letter to fans, posted HERE, Illenium explains, “Take You Down is about my struggles with addiction and what it can do to families and loved ones. It’s more specifically about my mom, and how no matter what, she never gave up on me. To anyone struggling like I did, not just with addiction but anything in life, I hope you guys can find peace in your struggles and know that anything can be overcome. I’ve been clean since that overdose and I owe that to finding my passion and being surrounded by the most loving people I could ever ask for.

Fresh off a sold-out tour of Australia and New Zealand, Illenium will perform at Lollapalooza tomorrow, August 4. In addition to a full slate of festival performances, including Outside Lands, Bumbershoot, Electric Zoo, Lost Lands, Austin City Limits and EDC Orlando, he will play a sold-out headline show at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, CO on August 29. See below for itinerary. Tickets are available at http://illenium.com/tour/.

Reviewing Illenium’s Coachella 2018 performance, Your EDM.com noted, “In the hour long set, Illenium played his heart out to tens of thousands of fans, some of whom were probably only at the festival to see him. Bringing out some deeper cuts as well as all of his newest music from Awake and Ashes, Illenium proceeded to take fans on an absolutely wild ride.

Illenium creates immersive emotional experiences, displaying an adeptness for crafting aural arrangements that vary in style, beauty, complexity and depth. With two full-length albums to his credit and sundry singles and remixes, he has surpassed the one billion stream mark across his discography.

His debut album, Ashes, was released to critical acclaim in early 2016. Awake followed in 2017 and hit #1 on in the iTunes Electronic Dance Charts in 12 countries. Named one of the 10 Best Dance/Electronic Albums of 2017 by Billboard, it included such singles as Feel Good (with Gryffin featuring Daya) and Crawl Outta Love. Praising the album as a gorgeous collection of future bass, piercing vocals, and barefaced lyrics, Dancing Astronaut said, While it might seem premature to call an album a masterpiece, no other title would fit Awake so well. Billboard observed, “The phoenix is Illenium ‘s mascot, and Awake is the emergent moment of that story.

Illenium’s Awake Live headline tour captivated audiences across the country, and sold out such renowned venues as The Shrine, Terminal 5, Bill Graham Civic Auditorium, Aragon Ballroom and Red Rocks. His remix of Flume’s Say It earned him an Electronic Music Award for Best Remix in 2017. Illenium’s recent collaborations include Don’t Give Up On Me with Kill The Noise ft. Mako and Gold (Stupid Love) with Excision ft. Shallows.

About Astralwerks:
Established in New York City and now finding its new home in the historic Capitol Records Tower in Los Angeles, Astralwerks was the brainchild of staffers at Caroline Records who saw an opportunity for a label focused on the emerging electronic and ambient scene. Having reached a milestone of 25 years, Astralwerks has quickly become a modern, artist-first label with a true focus on nurturing talent across the electronic genre and beyond. Acting with a scalable, independent and global thinking mentality with the capability to tap into the resources of a major label, has allowed Astralwerks to retain and sign up-and-coming artists such as I Illenium, Jonas Blue, Alison Wonderland, EDEN, Sigma and Axwell /\ Ingrosso. As a testament to this pioneering approach, Astralwerks has amassed 30 GRAMMY nominations, taken home six GRAMMY Awards and had historic releases from the likes of The Chemical Brothers, Swedish House Mafia, Halsey, Porter Robinson, Phoenix, Eric Prydz, Fatboy Slim and many more.

ALISON WONDERLAND x NEW VIDEO

Following her powerful performance at sunny Coachella, Alison Wonderland unveils her new video, Easy, which finds her dancing her way through a storm, stalked by an unrelenting rain cloud that even follows her indoors. Wonderland came up with the concept for the video after connecting with a scene from the 1998 film, The Truman Show.
“When I’m not happy, it feels like there is constant dark rain cloud over my head and it seems like everyone else is in the sunshine. It’s easy to feel isolated and alone, “explains Wonderland. “I wrote Easy on a day I felt like this. The description in the chorus is very literal. I woke up in bed too embarrassed to tell the guy next to me that I was sad for no reason, so I went to the bathroom to cry secretly because I was too scared to be honest at the time.”

ALISON WONDERLAND x NEW MUSIC VIDEO

With less than three weeks to go until the release of Alison Wonderland’s new album, AWAKE, comes the ambient single High; featuring Ohio rapper Trippie Redd. The track is accompanied by a mood-enhancing video featuring Wonderland and Trippie Redd and animation by Jayme Lemperle and Evan Red Borja. It was self-directed by Alison Wonderland, with cinematography from Jeffrey Zoss. View HERE.
Wonderland said, “It was a real pleasure to work with Trippie. It is important to vibe with an artist before we collaborate. When he heard this song, it was very organic, and he jumped in the booth and we walked out feeling that we had something special. I felt like this song had a certain spirit and wanted people to feel like they were going on a journey with us….just like when watching the music video.”
