Rolling off the success of the BASS INVADERS tour, EOTO has released dates outlining summer dates and their extensive festival season. Kicking the tour into gear in late March, Travis and Hann have wowed audiences from Colorado to Georgia with their incredible new 3D Lotus Flower stage design and the heavy hitting live dubstep they have become know for. This summer, the duo will continue to feed not only your bass thirsty ears but will throw your entire life into an electrical overload.
Live, improvisational, soul-shattering psy-dub is the name of the game with Michael Travis and Jason Hann. With nearly six years and hundreds of shows behind them, the pair continuously reinforces why they are still on the top of the electronic music scene and combines elements of many different genres and morphing them into a sound that is solely EOTO. One of the first acts to utilize the sound and ability of a live drummer, vocal loops and crisp acoustic drumming from Hann punctuate Travis’ vast array of bass, synth, and guitar, driving the duo ever deeper into the dark.
Traveling with the band is their entirely new and fully immersive 17 foot Lotus Flower stage, designed by the infamous VJ, Zebbler. HD video, custom 3D texture mapping, and endless lighting options envelop the duo as they take audiences on an audiovisual odyssey. To Hann, “…the lotus is this space ship that we’re about to take off with and journey into other worlds.” Different layers of petals and screens work together to create an overall illusion of motion and flow while each petal can be controlled individually to highlight a certain aspect of the performance.
Hammering out over 150 performances a year, EOTO has already dropped over thirty bass crushing shows in just over a month, sharing the stage with special guests Kraddy and Shpongle. The BASS INVADERS tour will give way to the project’s jam-packed festival season, moving across the country for performances at Wakarusa, Mountain Jam, Impulse Music Festival, Electric Forest, Horning’s Hideout, Infrasound, Summer Meltdown, Electric Zoo, Catskill Chill, and the Werk Out Festival. The duo is also excited to announce special events at the Mishawaka Amphitheatre in Bellvue, CO, the State Bridge Lodge, in Bond CO, and the first ever EOTO appearance at Red Rocks Amphitheatre with Lotus and Emancipator on September 8th.
