Warp-signed UK trio Darkstar is set to follow up last year's News From Nowhere LP and its subsequent series of remix EPs with a quick tour of the US this spring. News of the tour arrived today with a note that the four upcoming performances would be Darkstar's first US appearances since releasing its album roughly a year ago, and that the band is currently in the studio working on new material. They had this to say: "This new material feels like elements from our older dancefloor productions and our more recent song arrangements are coming together. There's a feeling of urgency about them and the beats are a lot heavier. It feels exciting. We're trying them out in rehearsals and we hope to have some in the live set when we hit America in April." The short list of Darkstar's upcoming US tour dates can be found below.
April 25 - Moogfest - Asheville NC
April 30 - Glasslands - Brooklyn, NY
May 1 - 1015 Folsom - San Francisco, CA
May 2 - The Echo - Los Angeles, CA
