Nobody’s suggesting that Zeds Dead haven’t been one of electronic music’s more prolific acts, but the fact remains that they have yet to release a studio-length album. Fortunately, the duo have sought to remedy this with the announcement of Northern Lights as well as a fall tour of its namesake.
Northern Lights will feature a pool of Zeds Dead collaborators diverse enough to include Diplo, Pusha T, Jadakiss and Weezer vocalist Rivers Cuomo. It will come out through their newly launched Deadbeats imprint sometime in September.
As for the subsequent tour, it will kick off with a performance in Baltimore, Maryland on September 29th and will consist of US gigs until closing out with a string of European dates that begin in London on November 17th.
What remains to be seen is what stylistic musings have colored Zeds Dead‘s creative process over the course of the endeavor. Whether they’ve return to their bass-heavy origins or continued to explore other genres while in the studio, chances are Northern Lights will be one of the bigger electronic music releases of 2016.
