FROM ‘DRIVE’ OUT NOW ON GARUDA

British producer GARETH EMERY is returning to the road this fall to present his ‘Drive – An American Road Trip’ tour.  Based around the theme of his latest album release DRIVE, out now on his Garuda Records label,  the tour will commence on August 29 in Montreal, Canada and includes festival appearances at both Budweiser Made In America’s in Los Angeles and Philadelphia, two back-to-back- shows at Webster Hall in New York City and a Las Vegas residency play at Marquee.

For the final leg of the DRIVE album support tour and the largest tour of his career to date,  EMERY will drive to some of the shows TBD, stopping at many markets he didn’t get to on his previous tour earlier this year including Minneapolis, Madison, Pontiac, Tampa, Chico and San Louis Obispo.  The 27+ date journey will culminate on November 22 with ‘The Finish Line,’ a special event with GARETH EMERY, somewhere in California TBA.   Tickets go on sale this Wednesday, July 30 at 10 am pt.  For information log on to www.garethemery.com/drive-tour/ 

The inspiring story behind DRIVE—which hit #1 on iTunes’ Dance Chart in both the U.S. and Canada, and #27 on the overall chart upon its release April 1–is derived from EMERY‘s 3000-mile adventure across the Oklahoma/ Texas border on Old Route 66. Exemplified by his deep and purposeful musicality, adept songwriting skills and ability to convey emotion through sound, EMERY has created a unique blend of house, trance and electro that is explored fully on DRIVE. Other singles from DRIVE include the beautiful and ethereal “U” featuring Bo Bruce, and the full bodied Beatport Top 10 club banger “Lights and Thunder”with Krewella.

Right before the tour begins, EMERY is preparing to detonate with “Dynamite,” the third single from DRIVE.  Set for release August 25 on Beatport, the song features Christina Novelli, the voice of one of EMERY’s most successful tracks “Concrete Angel.”  The track booms with Novelli’s angelic vocals sweetly delivering the chorus “Like a blazing light/ready to ignite/we are made of dynamite” helmed by explosive builds alongside a gentle piano.

Look for the “Dynamite” video to make its debut soon.  For it, GARETH EMERY collaborated once again with director/producer Alex Maxwell at the The Mill (http://www.themill.com/) who created the video for DRIVE’s first single “U.”
