Modestep Announce Headline Tour In Support Of Album 'Evolution Theory' Out March 5 2013

 

Having already ignited massive audiences in the UK with their raucous live shows, London-based dubstep-rock band Modestep hit the road this March for a five week tour commencing March 15 at Miami's Ultra Music Festival. Modestep visits major North American cities before wrapping April 19th in Indio, CA at Coachella.  Tickets go onsale this weekend for their headline dates. 

The track, 'Another Day' along with the other songs from 'Evolution Theory' were written, recorded and produced by Modestep. The band has amassed over 50 million views on YouTube.

Album highlights include the immense, hook-heavy 'Burn,' featuring Dirtee Stank's Newham Generals, and the intense 'Praying For Silence' (featuring Document One), written about the 2011 UK riots . Modestep vary the pace with the spacey dub-rock of 'Time,' the lighters-in-the-air epic 'Save The World' - which sounds like the theme tune to a future Bond film - and awesome title track 'Evolution Theory' (featuring D Power, Jammin, Frisco & Jammer) which builds from downtempo, grime beginnings into a full-on dubstep monster. Cohesive yet continually surprising, 'Evolution Theory' promises to take Modestep's thrilling, genre-hopping music to the masses. 

Modestep were born online in 2008, when brothers Josh and Tony Friend started Modestep Radio to showcase their productions and dubstep tracks they loved. By late 2010 they were writing their own songs, one of which was 'Feel Good,' for which they made a cheap video.  They gave the exclusive to dubstep Youtube channel UKF and within weeks it had 4 million hits. By Jan 2011 Modestep found themselves on the Radio 1 A-List and the hottest unsigned property in UK music. 

Modestep became a fully-fledged live band after Josh (vocals, keyboards) and Tony (decks, guitar) recruited Matt Curtis (drums) and Nick Tsang (lead guitar) in early 2011. Since then the band have toured relentlessly, smashing it at Festivals all over the world including Electric Daisy Carnival in the US.  The Modestep live show has ignited crowds from Reading to Sydney to Las Vegas to Moscow to Ibiza - the band has played to 1.5 million people in 2012 alone.  'Evolution Theory' will be released digitally on February 12 with a physical release out March 5.
