Lemaitre kicks off hectic autumn season with extensive, 21-date tour of the US and Canada.

With a new EP slated for release through Astralwerks later this autumn, Lemaitre are gearing up for a hectic season with an extensive 21-date North American tour that kicks off on Thu 28th of August at Vancouver’s Vogue.  The band’s live show is as ambitious as its music; consisting of three self-designed light installations complete with 3D animations.

Following a successful debut run at the 2014 SXSW Festival in Austin, including highly-coveted showcase spots on the Yahoo and Soundcloud bills, Lemaitre released their brand new single “High Tide” in the US earlier this year. The newest addition to the Astralwerks roster, Lemaitre’s unique blend of indie, disco and electro-tinged earcandy has earned praise from media such as Fader (“Guitar-guided disco”), Under The Radar (“Think Justice with a splash of Phoenix”), and many more.

A #1 HypeMachine artist on multiple occasions; the band boasts more than 5 million combined YouTube views and more than 1 million Soundcloud followers and it’s single “1:18” is featured in Apple’s “Designed Together” ad for the iPhone 5c. Lemaitre’s self-released 2012 EP “Relativity 2” shot to #1 on the iTunes Electronica charts in the US & Canada and charted in the Top-10 in 12 countries including the UK, Australia and France.

Lemaitre’s latest US release is the ‘Singularity’ EP, released in late July

Now based in LA, Lemaitre is working on a new EP for release on Astralwerks later this year.
