ANAMANAGUCHI Announces Additional Tour Dates

ANAMANAGUCHI Announces Additional Tour Dates

Anamanaguchi previously announced US tour dates with Dillon Francis including two nights at New York's Terminal 5 and two nights at Los Angeles' The Fonda, along with dates in other major cities (full list below). Now, the band has announced additional shows that they'll be headlining in Ann Arbor, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, and Cincinnati. Anamanaguchi will also be headlining the Carnival Stage at New Orleans' Voodoo Fest in November.

Anamanaguchi is a band made up of hackers and producers born and raised on the Internet, currently living in New York City. On May 14th, they released Endless Fantasy through their own brand new label, dream.hax - their ?rst album since soundtracking Scott Pilgrim vs. The World in 2010.

Anamanaguchi started in Pete Berkman's basement in the suburbs of New York where Weezer, snacks and Super Nintendo lived in equal rotation. At 15, he began experimenting with creating punk music using an 8-bit NES. Following bass player James DeVito to NYU's Music Technology program, Pete met Ary Warnaar who grew up in LA on raves, fashion and lazer tag. Ary began writing for the band, lending a more academic electronic-influence to Berkman's capricious pop sensibilities. Later that year Luke joined as the band's drummer via a MySpace message and then the band had fully formed.

Anamanaguchi is serious about being happy. They're part of a wave of young Internet romantics, nostalgic for a future they know may never come, but can see the seeds of it in the beauty that surrounds them. They're making emotional dance music for the video game generation and aren't afraid to claim it. Anamanaguchi was born past cynicism and indifference; they're in love with the universe and aim to celebrate magic-made-real with their music. The band is interested in breathing life into low-tech machines and making expressive, emotional melodies using the simplest, rawest electronic tones available.

Anamanaguchi is what the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles would've been if they were a band. Ary is cool but rude, Luke is a party dude, Pete leads, and James does machines (he's responsible for all the DIY sound-and-light electronics the band uses).

Their recently released album, Endless Fantasy, is about reality and dreams, being young and searching for agency in an in?nite existence. Its 22-tracks explore dreamworlds of all kinds from polygon forests, to Tokyo drifting hills at 100mph, to the lifestream from Final Fantasy VII.
