Cloud Control Are Main Support For Local Natives On 2013 UK And Euro Tour

Cloud Control are today announced as main support for Local Natives' UK tour this October. The shows between the Infectious Music labelmates will take place a week after Cloud Control's own headline tour of the UK & Europe, beginning at XOYO in London on 23 September. They will join Local Natives from 15 October through to 20 November, including a show at London's Brixton Academy on 17 October.

The shows follow the forthcoming release of Cloud Control's second album Dream Cave, due out in the UK on 16 September via Infectious Music (9 August in Australia through Ivy League, and 17 September in the US via Votiv). A first track from the album, Dojo Rising is released today.

Originally hailing from Australia's Blue Mountains, but now residing in the UK, Cloud Control - Alister Wright, Heidi Lenffer, Ulrich Lenffer and Jeremy Kelshaw - are applying last minute magic to the follow up to 2010's Bliss Release (released in the UK in May 2011 to critical acclaim, including 4* reviews in Q, The Times and The Guardian). The album won the Australian Music Prize, the antipodean equivalent of the Mercury Prize, and the band spent countless hours in the tour van notching up over four hundred gigs across the globe including support slots with Vampire Weekend, Weezer and Arcade Fire.

Whereas their debut was mostly recorded at home (laid to tape in Jeremy's parent's living room with engineer Liam Judson), for Dream Cave Cloud Control decamped to the Kent countryside with producer and mix engineer Barny Barnicott (whose credits include work with Arctic Monkeys, Plan B, Peace and Franz Ferdinand) to capture something utterly unique - an addictive swirl that uniquely blurs together the psychedelic guitar pop and soaring West Coast harmonies of their debut with warm electronics, programmed loops and reverb-soaked percussion. 

Dojo Rising is released today via Infectious Music
