GoGo Penguin have announced their largest UK tour to date with headline a headline show at London’s prestigious Royal Albert Hall but also Albert Hall in Manchester, alongside dates in Sheffield, Glasgow, Newcastle, Brighton, Cambridge, Bristol and Cardiff.
GoGo Penguin’s music has been described as acoustic-electronica, but they draw equally on rock, jazz and minimalism, game soundtracks and glitchy-electronica to create their unique music. The tour follows on from their sold-out show at The Roundhouse in February and barn-storming sets at BBC Biggest Weekend and Festival Number 6 earlier this year.
In 2015, the trio signed to Blue Note Records and released the album, Man Made Object the following year. More recently GoGo Penguin have been touring their own score to Godfrey Reggio’s cult film Koyaanisqatsi, as well selling out shows worldwide. The band toured the summer festival circuit, which included dates at BBC Biggest Weekend and Festival Number 6. This comes only a few year’s after the band’s album v2.0 was nominated for a Mercury prize alongside Damon Albarn and Young Fathers.
GoGo Penguin will play music from all their albums including music from their latest Blue Note Records release, the internationally acclaimed A Humdrum Star, which was released at the start of this year. Support comes from singer-songwriter Andreya Triana, who previously collaborated with the likes of Flying Lotus, Mr. Scruff and Bonobo.
