M83 to Tour with the Killers

When your album debuts at number one on the charts, it no longer suffices to play mid-sized venues with your fellow indie artists. Therefore, M83, after a very successful year that saw Saturdays = Youth win the hearts of every critic and fan between S.F. and Sheffield, will hit the arenas of the world for his latest batch of tour dates. December sees him traveling through the U.K. alongside the Kings of Leon, before heading Stateside for more gigantic shows with the Killers. Shoegaze arena rock, anyone?

i don't think killers fans will get M83 - really odd pairing. Saturdays = Youth is easily one of my favorite albums of the year. Have you seen M83's own Top 10 list? there are some surprises on there!

you can stream the songs on his list over at www.erockster.com
