La Roux Announces North American Tour Dates

British synth-pop sensation La Roux are set to hit the shores of North America for a slew of highly anticipated performances this summer. 21-year-old Elly Jackson and producer co-hort Ben Langmaid, the talented South London duo who make up La Roux, have made an impressive impact on the UK’s music scene since joining forces two years ago. While collaboration began in London’s burgeoning underground warehouse scene, it is has since landed on daytime radio and the upper echelons of the British charts. Single “In For The Kill” recently reached #2 and sustained its position for seven consecutive weeks. It is also the biggest selling single by an artist in the UK this year and has sold 500,000 copies and counting.

The self-titled debut full-length will be released on September 29th on Cherrytree Records in the US, and an EP for the new single “Bulletproof” will be out on July 21st. The album version of “Bulletproof” is currently available on iTunes and all digital outlets.

Raves for La Roux:

“Hooks so huge you could use them to raise the Titanic” The Times

“A dream version of how modern pop should be” The Guardian

“(The) self-titled full-length debut sports sub-zero cyber melodies, but much like her frosty foremother Annie Lennox, La Roux injects a healthy dose of emotional turmoil into her songwriting.” - Out Magazine

“Her current single, Quicksand, clones the froideur of Jackson's favourite decade with love and skill, and makes for nagging pop with emotional substance. Clearly, La Roux has greater ambitions than just getting poseurs to dance.” The Independent
