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.

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.

To date, Astralwerks has amassed 30 GRAMMY nominations, taken home six GRAMMY Awards and released prominent soundtracks such as the GRAMMY-nominated Six Feet Under and the BRIT-nominated The Virgin Suicides. The label has hosted massive events at Miami’s legendary Winter Music Conference, staged the first Rave On The Rocks at Red Rocks in Denver and produced a celebrated music video that was voted “best video of all time” in the U.K. for “Weapon Of Choice” by artist Fatboy Slim-who also happened to be the first DJ to sell one million albums in the U.S.
