CHAIRLIFT ANNOUNCE EXTENSIVE TOUR SCHEDULE WITH PHOENIX AND OTHERS, LATE NIGHT TELEVISION DEBUT ON CRAIG FERGUSON

 

(Columbia Records; New York, NY; July 20, 2009)  - Brooklyn synth-popsters Chairlift are pleased to announce an extensive headlining tour across North America and Europe with Phoenix, innovative UK up-and-comers Micachu and the Shapes, and several others. The band's summer is in full swing after several performances at Bonnaroo last month, and their first set of West Coast headlining dates in the LA area.  The band also recently made their network television debut on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson on Friday June 26, performing “Bruises.” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oq7ctkesZNs

 

Live, Chairlift has continued to captivate audiences of all sizes across the US and Europe. Rolling Stone named Chairlift one of “Four Bands to Watch” at Bonnaroo and said, “…far darker than [“Bruises”] suggests: Chairlift craft surreal electro-pop that serve as a base for singer Caroline Polachek's gorgeous, opera-trained voice.” SPIN gave the band's debut 4/5 stars and a spot on their “Top 40 Albums of 2008” list, heralded as “startlingly impressive” with “astute, melodic evocations of plinky new wave…that achieve a timeless emotional resonance.” Venus also said, “Caroline Polachek's…crystal clear voice was more than plenty to get the crowd going.” Polachek also did a much-revered performance at the festival with MGMT: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1ma1Ul9bCGY

 

In preparation for their extensive touring schedule, Chairlift will be performing at festivals across the US and Europe, including All Points West, Lollapalooza, Latitude and Way Out West. They will also perform with TV on the Radio at the Double Door in Chicago. The tour will kick off in New York at the Bowery Ballroom Sept. 5 and will wrap up in the UK with Phoenix.
