Black Onassis Announce Feb And March 2014 UK Tour

Following the release of their acclaimed debut album Desensitized, NYC based Black Onassis are back to reveal a string of UK tour dates for early 2014.

This tour marks a significant homecoming for Chris Karloff. After his departure from Kasabian in 2006, Chris left his native home of Leicester and moved across the pond to New York City where he formed Black Onassis. Although he found limitless musical and creative opportunities in his new settlement, after seven years of being away he looks forward to reconnecting with his staunch UK fanbase.

Black Onassis are aware of their unconventional lineup in regards to their live performances. When recording their debut - which mixes psychedelic guitar rock with pulsing electronica - rather than opting for a traditional format with a lead singer, Chris chose to work with guest vocalists, with lines going out to members of The Duke Spirit, M83, The Cooper Temple Clause and more. So to compensate for the fact that they would be touring with no singer, the band teamed up with filmmakers and visual artists to incorporate a huge visual element to the show. Using light and projection, they have crafted a presentation that is tailor-made for each song resulting in an extreme and elaborate visual and sonic environment that floods the senses:

"One thing that's inspired me a lot to write music is movies, and not just watching them but listening to the music in them as well," says Karloff. "That's been a massive influence for me, even back in the Kasabian days. From classic John Williams stuff to Ennio Morricone. I want things to be visually interesting as well as sonically good. The fusion of sight and sound is the perfect marriage in terms of stimulation, and we wanted to put a lot of thought into making it an overall experience for our fans."

To celebrate the announcement of these upcoming shows, Black Onassis are giving away a free download of track 'Ether' (feat Morgan Kibby) from their album Desensitized. 

Black Onassis will play the following UK dates:

FEB 21st - London, Koko
FEB 25th - Nottingham, Bodega
FEB 26th - Leicester, Academy 2
FEB 27th - Manchester, Academy 3
FEB 28th - Leeds, Eiger

MARCH 1st - Glasgow, Bar & Fly
