Air takes Love 2 on the road

placeholder image

Back in October, the French electric duo known as Air shared Love 2. Come March 13th, the band will take to the U.S. and Canada for a 13-date tour in support of its sixth full-length.

Billed as the “first of several U.S. trips,” the two week trek will come in the form of a traditional tour “showcasing the breadth of their catalog and re-interpretations of new songs from the Love 2 album.” To accomplish this task, the band will be performing its live show as an intimate three-piece. Regulars  Nicolas Godin and Jean-Benoît Dunckel will handle full instrumental and vocal duties, while Alex Thomas (Bat For Lashes, Badly Drawn Boy) will do the drumming.

AM, who we just recently discussed, will serve as the tour’s opener.
