After successfully releasing its debut album, Sacred Ground, in May, Howling will now plunge into an international tour with shows in Germany, London, and North America. The tour runs though July and August, with their U.S. debut taking place in New York at Output at the end of July.
The live duo consists of The Acid's frontman, Ry X, and Âme's Frank Wiedemann. The act quickly exploded onto the scene when Dixon closed his Boiler Room set with the original version of their self-titled song "Howling." Though the track was hardly past the demo stage at that time, the combination of beautifully hypnotic vocals from Ry X, mixed with the flowing soundscapes provided by Wiedemann, turned out to be a powerful and unexpected happenstance.
"It’s a very intuitive process where we fall in love with one element of the song or one element of a thought, and we follow that until both of those ideas have been met.” – Ry X
After bringing its captivating live show to Europe for festival performances at Nuits Sonores in France and Berlin Festival in 2015, the band performed at a number of infamous ‘Lost in a Moment’ parties hosted by Innervisions. Howling is now set to make its North American debut with dates at Output in New York, and at local Los Angeles art warehouse, Lot 613.
