Caravan Palace to Tour the U.S. This Spring in Support of Album

Parisian seven-piece electronic big band Caravan Palace is set to tour the U.S. this spring in support of their critically acclaimed third full-length album, <|°_°|>, out now on Le Plan Recordings. See below for a full list of dates.

Since its release, <|°_°|> has received extensive critical praise. In premiering the record, KCRW noted that "this new album keeps the good times coming, with a potent mix of fun-loving genre mashups." Host Marco Werman of PRI's "The World" commented on air, "you can see my body moving, is!" and PopMatters named the album the "#2 Pop Record of 2015." The record also saw chart success, reaching #3 on Billboard's Electronic/Dance Album chart and #5 on Billboard's Heatseekers chart; it has remained on the Billboard Electronic/Dance chart for over 20 weeks.

Upon <|°_°|>'s release the group performed on "Later...with Jools Holland" (watch the performance here). The video for the single "Lone Digger" has been watched over seven million times via YouTube and can be viewed here.

Fronted by vocalist Zoé Colotis and founding members Hugues Payen (violin), Charles Delaporte (upright bass) and Arnaud Vial (guitar) alongside Antoine Toustou (trombone, machines), Caravan Palace cites influences as diverse as Cab Calloway and Daft Punk. The group first formed when approached to compose the score to a silent porn movie from the early 20th century and broke out in their home country with their self-titled 2008 debut, which went Platinum in France. Their profile in the U.S. has grown largely via word of mouth, selling over 50,000 records in North America and recently performing at Coachella, where LAist included them in their list of "15 Under-The-Radar Acts...You Shouldn't Miss" and noted that "you'll need your dancing shoes on for this keyboard and horn-heavy band."
