“Reunion EP” To Release on 5/8; Ultra Festival This Weekend!

March 21, 2012

New York, NY

 

NEW SINGLE EP REUNION OUT MAY 8TH

 

M83 HITS ULTRA MUSIC FESTIVAL THIS WEEKEND

SAT. MARCH 24TH – LIVE STAGE – 8:00PM

TOUR DATES ADDED IN Pomona AND Montreal’s Osheaga Festival

“MIDNIGHT CITY” RISES TO #8 AT ALTERNATIVE RADIO IN THE U.S.

“M83 at its best — vibrant, elegant and unpredictable.” – The New York Times

“22 tracks of horizon-spanning, unabashedly epic synth rock, a double album

without a wasted moment” – Pitchfork

 

M83 will release the Reunion EP on May 8th, 2012 through Mute, the second single to be taken from the hugely acclaimed fifth album Hurry Up We’re Dreaming, the double album that hit number 15 on the US Billboard charts and topped the electronic and alternative charts. The first single, “Midnight City”, was one of the biggest tracks of the last 12 months, with over six million hits on YouTube to date, Six week run at #1 at CMJ, #1 FMQB Alternative Specialty record and song, #8 at US Alternative Radio, and remains one of the biggest club tracks of the moment across the world thanks to the Eric Prydz rework. It has also entered the U.S Billboard Hot 100. With the release of “Reunion”, the rise of Anthony Gonzalez’s M83 is set to continue.

Reunion continues to display M83’s aptitude at writing catchy cosmic-pop soundtracks filled with fantasy and imagination. The single will be released with a stunning and diverse remix package of 6 exclusive re-works of the track, which include Mylo, Sei A, The Naked And Famous, Polly Scattergood, and White Sea.

Mylo leads the Reunion remix charge with his trademark funky synth bass lines and beats, cleverly weaved into the spaced-out original vocal track to create a contradiction of sounds and another hit for M83. Sei A, the up and coming Glasgow based producer, is hailed as one of the most exciting producers in the techno-house scene, and has given Reunion a glimpse of Glaswegian industrialism through his loop filled minimalist mix. The White Sea remix is a spaced out dubstep nugget, whilst The Naked And Famous take an altogether different route with their rework by building the track into an electronic cacophony of synths, guitars and drums, much the way M83 do performing live.

M83 hits electronic music’s largest stage this weekend for Miami’s sold out Ultra Music Festival, where 200,000 fans will be watching. The band will take the Live Stage on Saturday March 24th at 8:00pm. Additionally, new shows have been added to the tour including The Fox Theatre in Pomona, CA on April 12th and Osheaga Festival in Montreal (date TBC). Having extensively toured since the release of the album in October 2011, M83 is selling out shows across the world, and has become an unstoppable force of musical nature. Full list of dates below.

Produced by Justin Meldal-Johnsen (Beck, NIN, The Mars Volta, Goldfrapp), mixed by Tony Hoffer (Air, The Kooks), and including contributions from Brad Laner (from 90’s band Medicine), Saturdays=Youth vocalist Morgan Kibby, and guest vocalist Zola Jesus, Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming is a double-album journey that takes us to the horizon and introduces us to new landscapes. About awakening, craving, and conquering, Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming pushes into new vocal territory for M83. Here we see Gonzalez test out different ways of singing, ranging from a spectral breathy whisper to a howling scream.  “I think it is a reflection of my 30 years of being a human being. It’s a compilation of all my previous music together. It’s a retrospective of myself”, says Gonzalez.

Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming is the follow up to the John Hughes inspired and critics’ favorite 2008 album, Saturdays=Youth.

M83 is Los Angeles based French artist Anthony Gonzalez.
