As announced yesterday by Consequence of Sound, Moon Hooch will tour the U.S. this fall. It will be their first extensive run of shows in the States since their new studio album, 'Red Sky' was released in June. The explosive, Brooklyn-based horn-and-percussion trio featuring Mike Wilbur (horns), Wenzl McGowen (horns) and James Muschler (drums) will begin the 35-show, cross-country tour in the Northeast before heading to the Midwest, including stops in Chicago, Minneapolis and Cleveland. The tour then hits the Rocky Mountain states before concluding with a thirteen night stretch up the West Coast. Tickets go on sale tomorrow, Friday, July 22.

With the exception of a handful of U.S. festivals, Moon Hooch have spent the majority of this summer touring Canada and Europe, which led to an invitation to appear on BBC Two's Later…With Jools Holland. Watch the short film about that experience here and the performance here.

Mixing elements of indie rock, virtuosic jazz and pulse-pounding electronic dance music with a DIY spirit,  Moon Hooch's latest album 'Red Sky' captures the spontaneous, entrancing energy of their live shows, while at the same time demonstrating the marked evolution from their early days busking in the New York City subway system with just two saxophones and a drum kit. The collection was recorded at The Bunker studio in Brooklyn. In a previous song premiereDiffuser described the album as "...a return to their more organic sound, but with no less ambition." The collection opens with the tribal urgency of the title track and proceeds, over the next 45 minutes, to utterly demolish any and every possible barrier that could stand between the music and the dance floor. Never content to stay in one sonic place too long, "Psychotubes" finds the trio at their heaviest, channeling apocalyptic fire. The staccato intro of "That's What They Say" gives way to a gritty, late-night come-on of a saxophone line that's far more suggestive than any whispered words ever could be. Wilbur's expanding role as a vocalist is once again felt on the haunting "Sunken Ship," which points to an evolving depth and maturity in Moon Hooch's sound, while "Shot" finds Wilbur delivering a stream of consciousness vocal line over an airtight groove. NPR Music wrote: "We also hear this mostly instrumental band tackle a handful of songs with Wilbur singing; in the past, those tracks felt like a nice break from all the relentless energy, but on 'Red Sky' his vocals feel integral and expansive."
