Moderat (that's the combined talents of Modeselektor and Apparat) recently reformed after a seven-year hiatus, and with a long-promised self-titled album set for release tomorrow (May 12), the trio now looks to North America for a few tour dates.
These performances won't simply be three dudes behind laptop screens either. Joining Moderat will be two members of Berlin-based audio/visual group Pfadfinderei, who will synch video with audio across three screens displayed onstage. Those who snag a deluxe copy of the new album will also receive a Pfadfinderei DVD, which should provide a glimpse into what to expect at the live shows.
In other Moderat news, a new single, "Rusty Nails," will be released on May 25, with remixes by Booka Shade and TRG.
